The following is a post by Jason Smith, a head baseball recruiting coach at NCSA Athletic Recruiting. Jason, a former college baseball player himself, coached at all three divisions of play in the NCAA, and is a regular contributor to this blog. You can follow Jason on Twitter @NCSAJason or on Facebook for more recruiting tips.

First pitch in the 2016 NCAA Men’s College World Series is scheduled for 2PM this Saturday, June 18th.

Whether you follow college baseball closely or are just a casual fan, you don’t want to miss an inning at TD Ameritrade Park this June.

Making the trip to Omaha is the ultimate goal for NCAA Division 1 baseball programs. Last year, 11 former NCSA prospects competed in Omaha for the National Championship. This year, there are 12 looking to win it all. Congratulations to these players:

Coastal Carolina

We’re extremely proud of these young players.

Whether a starter or role player, each one of these student-athletes played a key role in their team’s trip on the “Road to Omaha.”

The competition level at the College World Series never disappoints, and I hope you’ll be cheering on these student-athletes over the next two weeks — I know that I, and the rest of the team at NCSA Athletic Recruiting, will be.
