The Vanderbilt Commodores are sitting on top of the college baseball world tonight, as they are bringing back a College World Series trophy to display on the West End campus in Nashville.

John Norwood’s home run in the top of the eighth inning gave Vanderbilt the lead, and the Commodores beat Virginia 3-2 on Wednesday night for their first College World Series championship.

Norwood turned on Nick Howard’s 97 mph fastball and sent it into the left field bullpen to break a 2-2 tie in the third and deciding game of the College World Series finals.

It was Norwood’s third homer of the year, his first since April 19, and Vanderbilt’s first since May 16. It also was only the third home run in 16 CWS games and the 22nd in 72 games by the Commodores (51-21).

Vandy Stays Unbeaten in CWS, Tops UC-Irvine 6-4

Vanderbilt took down UC Irvine 6-4 to remain unbeaten in the 2014 College World Series. Zander Wiel went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored for the Commodores.  Showcasing a dazzling arsenal of pitches, Walker Buehler completely silenced UC Irvine’s bats Monday at the most crucial time.

Vandy Beats Louisville 5-3 in Omaha

Adam Ravenelle anchored down with 2 and 1/3 innings of shutout relief as the Vanderbilt Commodores held on for a 5-3 victory in the opening round of the College World Series in Omaha.

Perhaps the comedic relief during stretching of the Vanderbilt team has helped to cut the tension as their success continues to grow.

Vandy Headed to Omaha!!

The Vanderbilt Commodores anchored down and scored twelve runs to capture the rubber game of the super-regional series against the Stanford Cardinal’s five spot to advance to the College World Series in Omaha.

“It’s like Christmas Day,” Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin told Jerome Boettcher of VUCommodores.com,

“It’s like when your kids come down and they get under the Christmas tree and start opening the presents, that’s what it feels like. I don’t have to be a part of that. All I need to do is get in the dugout and watch the kids celebrate.”
