32 CCBL players in College World Series

The College World Series is the apex of collegiate baseball, with Omaha being a mecca for fans and players alike. Even in a new stadium, the history of the tournament and the prestige of the title brings out the best in the sport, and dreams of dog-piles and upsets are strong.

At the start of the tournament last Saturday, 32 of the players in Omaha carried contracts with a Cape League team. Louisville, who was ousted yesterday by Texas, had the most CCBL players set to come (8), with Vanderbilt and Virginia close behind with seven players each on Cape teams. Texas and Cinderella story UC Irvine each have four rostered Cape Leaguers, and Ole Miss settles in with two.

Orleans currently is missing the most, with six players in the CWS, while Chatham, Bourne, and Wareham are all missing five rostered players to the NCAA playoffs.
