Tide Baseball Has World Series Week

You just thought the World Series was over. Boston may have beaten St. Louis for THAT World Series, which really doesn't take in teams from any part of the world except the United States, and only teams that are in the American and National Leagues. And people complain about the BCS!



The World Series, however, is just beginning in Tuscaloosa. In a week when most are concentrating on a Saturday football game, the Alabama baseball team is finishing up fall workouts.

For the sixth and final week, the Crimson Tide of Coach Mitch Gaspard will play the Crimson and Gray World Series. The series begins on Tuesday with first pitch scheduled at 3:30 p.m.CST from Sewell-Thomas Stadium. The series continues on Wednesday, with first pitch also at 3:30 p.m., and the Crimson and Gray World Series and the fall schedule wrap up on Friday with first pitch slated for 6:05 p.m.

Here are the squads:
