Fresno State Defeats Georgia 6-1 to win CWS (2-1). At least this year's Georgia choke will make people forget about UNC choking in 2006.

Steve Detwiler went 4-for-4 (2 home runs, single, double) and drove in all six of Fresno State's runs.

Well done Fresno! One of these days the Utes will have a competitive baseball team and I’ll get to go to Omaha. :)

A blogger for the Dayton Daily News wrote a nice column about Tim Tebow about his christian mission work during the summer. Check it out.

This was the first NCAA Championship for a Fresno State Men's team. Congratulations to them, their excellent program and one of the most dedicated fan bases in the state.

Fresno State has some competition to get to the CWS. U.Cal.Irvine & U.Cal. Fullerton both have excellent baseball programs.

Awesome performance - to be the best you have to beat the best - Fresno state went through some impressive competition to get to the National Championship - nobody gave them anything. Lot of guts and determination.

Well, they made some history. Their win in the CWS is a nice introduction to the world. Keep an eye on their football squad in the fall. There is quiet talk of huge potential for this season.

Hey ... looking forward to seeing you again.

I’ve been busy this year and haven’t followed the baseball team much.

They made me a believer when they beat Arizona.

We are the Champions, Ta Da. What a great sound!!!

California State University, Fresno...The official name of Fresno State.

Congratulations to Fresno State...Good luck next year. Remember Oregon State won two years in a row. (This year Oregon State didn’t make it to the postseason. Poor record.)

I am sure more major leaguers will come out of Fresno State.
Jeff Weaver played at Fresno State...Mark Gardner (Giants) played at Fresno State. His wife played softball at Fresno State...She died of cancer several years ago.

Woo Hoo!

A kid from my son’s high school is a freshman on the team, and Nick Hom is a De La Salle grad as well.

Detwiler is something else.

Congratulations, Bulldogs!

What a champion that kid is.

Just amazing ... he can now have the surgery on his thumb to repair a torn ligament. He played hurt the entire series.
