Coastal Carolina Wins College World Series
The Chanticleers conquered them all. The Conway, South Carolina, university and its whole Big South Conference had never won a national championship — in anything — until yesterday, when Coastal closed out Game 3 against Arizona with a 4-3 win. Though the Chanticleers had been ranked fairly high this season, they’re not typical College World Series contenders, and were even snubbed to host the tournament’s early rounds. The team’s ace, right-handed junior Andrew Beckwith, was named Most Outstanding Player after tossing another gem and wowing the college baseball world.
