    One of my great regrets is not making the trip in 2010 and 2011, and then having an opportunity to go while my brother in law was living in Omaha, and still not making it happen.

    Did I cry like a mother fucker last night? Absolutely. Had a flashback of Jake Mangum fighting back tears and telling Lemonis at the final presser of 2019 “You’re gonna bring this baseball program its first national title. You are and it’s going to be awesome.”, little did I know it would be this fast.

    I almost said fuck off because I hate baseball, but I can't be that mean.

    D1Baseball Crystal Ball: Eight For Omaha In 2022
    ANALYSIS D1 Baseball Staff - July 7, 2021

    At the end of each College World Series, we break down some early contenders for the following season’s CWS field. In years past, the draft has always been concluded and the transfer portal was not a factor because players had to sit out a year when the switched to a different Division I school, so we could offer a lot more insight on our way-too-early eight for Omaha picks. But this year, with the draft moved to mid-July and the transfer portal still re-shaping many rosters, the college baseball landscape offers far less clarity. So rather than go into detail on each of our teams, we’ve asked all of our staffers to take a swing at how next year’s CWS field might shape up, but we’ll save the analysis for later in the summer after the rosters have crystallized. We’ll surely also revise our picks in Version 2 at the end of the summer.

    But we know you’re hungry for a sneak peek, so here’s our first stab at predicting next year’s CWS field. In last year’s exercise, Eric Sorenson proved the most prescient, correctly pegging Vanderbilt, Texas and Arizona to make the 2021 CWS. Aaron Fitt hit on Vandy and Virginia, while Kendall Rogers was right on just Vanderbilt. Of course, it’s worth noting that last year’s exercise came at the end of a pandemic-shortened season, so our dart throws were less informed than usual. But it’s worth noting that we’ve had more success in past years, with more data at our disposal: Fitt and Rogers both correctly identified five of the eight 2017 CWS participants a year in advance, and Fitt also went 5-for-8 in 2018.

    Without further ado, here are our early picks for 2022.

    Eight For Omaha In 2022

    The ump, Jeff Henrichs, is a family friend on my mom's side. My grandpa on that side just passed away and the funeral was this past Friday and Jeff came, so I chatted with him a bit and told him I thought he made the right call and he just smiled and said "thanks, me too."

    Was umping and a mom slapped my buddy who was behind the plate because “ her 9 year old knows the difference between strikes and balls and would’ve swung if it was a strike” the cops escorted her out of the park shortly after.
