It's so weird that I get more nervous watching @uclabaseball than I do playing. Going to Omaha! Great job Bruins. So proud to be an alumn— Tyler Heineman (@theineman13) June 9, 2013

And UCLA is headed to Omaha!!⚾— Kylie Fitts (@K_Fitts93) June 9, 2013
Baseball alums, current athletes, incoming athletes. This is what a high profile college athletics program should be about. Too bad our athletic director is too busy wondering how to make a baseball shaped donut.
Or figuring out how to deal with this guy.
Congrats to Coach Savage and Bruin Baseball. Omaha here comes UCLA!!!— Steve Alford (@UCLACoachAlford) June 9, 2013
Do you think he writes his own material? Doubtful.
The current players are excited:

Omaha bound... #Redemption— Adam Plutko (@Papaplut09) June 9, 2013
Congratulations again, UCLA Baseball.
One final baseball alum note, Gerrit Cole, the #1 draft pick in the 2011 MLB Draft will be making his debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the San Francisco Giants, going up against former UW pitcher Tim Lincecum, former Bruin Brandon Crawford... who also happens to be the brother of Gerrit's girlfriend, Amy Crawford, former UCLA softball player.
Good luck Gerrit.
Oh and the absolute final note, life is good for Coach Jim Mora.
That picture was picked up nationally.
