A Season to Remember

Auburn Baseball found itself facing adversity late in the 2019 season, they could’ve thrown in the towel or waved the white flag but they never did. Auburn’s historic run to the 2019 NCAA Baseball College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska began back early 2019 and the team ran into some bumps in the road along the way. Their run began with a 6-5 win over Georgia Tech in the Atlanta Regional, in which they defeated Coastal Carolina once and Georgia Tech twice to win the regional. The first meeting with Georgia Tech in postseason play sparked it all. Steven Williams’ incredible walk-off homer at Russ Chandler Stadium lit a fire under the Tigers. A fire, which they carried with them from that point on. Knocking off North Carolina in the Chapel Hill Super Regional, a best-of-three series that Auburn won 2-1. Sunday night, the Tigers lost an absolute heartbreaker to Mississippi State 5-4 in the first game of their trip to Omaha. On Tuesday, Auburn tangled with the Louisville Cardinals but the game would enter a weather delay and wouldn’t resume until 11:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. When the game resumed, the Tigers found themselves in a bit of a hole, down 4-1 entering the fifth inning. The Cardinals would tack on one more run and the Tigers would answer back with two runs of their own. The last of which came on a ninth inning home run. Louisville would go on to win 5-3. Say what you want, but this team and this season will live forever. Auburn never gave up even when they had the opportunity to do so. They didn’t back down. The unity that this team showed was absolutely incredible. Rod and Paula Bramblett are without a doubt beaming with pride as am I. This season was one to remember. Pictures: Auburn Baseball Twitter.
