Who’s Hot in HBCU Baseball – Week Thirteen

Hugh midweek and even bigger weekend of Black College World Series action…Who’s Hot In HBCU Baseball – Week Thirteen…

Bluefield State won the school’s first ever national title by defeating Xavier University of Louisiana to win HBCU baseball’s inaugural Black College World Series with an 7-2 victory in the second game of a winner-take-all final. The win ended a surprising postseason run for Bluefield State.

They piled on the first base side, bounced off one another on the field and howled as they exited Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery, Alabama. And most of what they tried to say to sum up their feelings made little sense. Big Blue were a model of consistency from start to finish.
