11 new Saratoga Phillies ready for CWS

The Saratoga Phillies may have to wait before its 2008 New York Collegiate Baseball League roster is completely filled as 11 players and their respective collegiate teams have earned berths in the 2008 NCAA Division I College World Series.

Left-handed pitcher Sean Lucas, first baseman Tyler Biddix, outfielder David Coleman and right-handed pitcher Jake Cowan of Virginia could be making the trip to Fullerton, California as the No. 3 seed if they are part of the 25-man NCAA travel roster.

Locals will have a chance to see the Cavaliers compete beginning 7 p.m. Friday when they face No. 2 UCLA in the first contest of the regional broadcast on ESPNU.
The Fullerton Regional is only one of two regionals announced as being broadcast by ESPN.

The second contest on Friday will see No. 1 Cal State Fullerton take on No. 4 Rider.
The action continues Saturday when the first-round losers face-off at 7 p.m. and the winners meet at 11 p.m. The tournament uses a double-elimination format with action continuing on Sunday at 7 and 11 p.m. The “if necessary” contest is slated for 7 p.m.
The winner will advance to the Super Regional beginning June 6 or 7 for a best of three series.

Vanderbilt has advanced to the Tempe, Arizona Regional and left-handed pitcher Kellen St. Luce and outfielder Jordan Wormsley can be a part of the Commodores sixth consecutive tournament appearance.

No. 2 Vanderbilt will face No. 3 Oklahoma 5 p.m. Friday and host No. 1 Arizona State will face No. 4 Stony Brook at 10 p.m.

Elon University’s right-handed pitcher Jared Kernodle and infielder Greg Annarummo, playing for the Southern Conference Champions, advanced to the Clary, NC Regional as the No. 3 seed and will take on No. 2 UNC Wilmington 2 p.m. Friday. No. 1 North Carolina will face No. 4 Mount St. Mary at 6 p.m.

Oklahoma State’s right-handed pitcher Taylor McKinney gets to sleep in as the Cowboys host a regional and will face No. 4 Western Kentucky 8 p.m. Friday. In the opener, No. 2 Wichita State faces No. 3 TCU at 2 p.m.

Stanford right-hander Billy Vernon will have the same advantage as the No. 1 Cardinal will host No. 4 UC Davis 8 p.m. Friday. No. 2 Pepperdine faces No. 3 Arkansas at 4 p.m. This is the 28th appearance in the NCAA tournament for Stanford, currently ranked No. 16 in the nation.

The Big East Champions, Louisville and outfielder Nate Holland travel to Athens, Georgia as the No. 3 seeded team and will face No. 2 Georgia Tech 7 p.m. Friday. No. 1-seeded Georgia takes on No. 4 Lipscomb at 3 p.m.

The Division I Men’s College World Series double-elimination, eight-team finale will begin June 14 in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Saratoga Phillies is a collegiate wood bat baseball squad competing in the New York Collegiate Baseball League and its roster is comprised of college players who have not yet signed a professional contract.
