Degroat was the first pitcher all day that actually shut down IWU.  Am I correct in assuming that Southworth is a senior that the coach wanted to give a WS experience to?

I see now that both teams are making wholesale substitutions/pinch hitters.  Good sportsmanship by coaches giving guys a taste of the WS in a game that is pretty-much over.

Glad to see the substitutions - in a game like this one, everyone on the roster should be worked in by the coaching staff...

Same, I'm sure, with Roche (a senior) relieving Pankau, rather than the much superior, and well-rested, Joe Sweeney (a sophomore).  I don't think Sweeney has pitched at all this series - sure hope he gets his WS time before graduation! ;)

What a remarkable run by IWU to claim the National Championship. Great job by the Titans. As the announcer on the video feed stated. They will "Remember the Titans" in Appleton. Celebrate Mr. Yipsi, your guys earned it.

Well, Sweeney got his time afterall - and got shelled in the ninth!  Fortunately, a two-run shelling didn't hurt much. ;)

IWU Titans - National Champions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Congratulations on great seasons to all the CWS participants.

I have my doubts that the Titans were THE best team in the country, but they were for 5 days in May and June - I can live with that!! ;D

Congrats to IWU....never thought they'd be here after their rough start, but it's how you play at the end of the year that matters.  They had the talent all along, and a 17-4 finish over their last 21 games, including a conference, regional, and National Championship isn't too shabby :)

Congratulations to IWU.

I guess the fans on the Hoops board wished that their men's basketball team was as good as baseball and women's track.

Have we ever had a national champion with 20+ losses?  I would think not.

1976 Cal State Stanislaus  33-20-2  was the last team with 20 losses to win the National Championship.

BUT it dont matter. Win the right games at the right time.....All other stats dont matter if your dog piling and taking the Walnut and Bronze home. The best ERA, Most Wins, Highest Batting Average, Best winning percentage dont get you the Championship

Illinois Wesleyan took on all comers and beat the teams they had to beat...Be the best on the last day and it dont matter who was best on Day 1 to the day before the last day.

Congrats to the TITANS...

Congrats to IWU !!! Thank You for putting the CCIW on the map and raising the Bar so high. It will be great for the entire conference getting to play the defending Champs 3 times a piece next year. Great Job !!!
