Florida Gator Baseball

Dependable Dickey
It's summer and outfielder Gavin Dickey is basking in the joy of playing in the College World Series. He's concerned about nothing but shagging fly balls, taking batting practice and trying to help Florida win its first ever national championship in baseball.

Thriving in a sea of Red
Big Red is everywhere. Orange and blue is not. Lincoln, home of the University of Nebraska, is about 80 miles southwest of Omaha along Interstate 80, a little more than an hour's drive for Nebraska fans who want to watch the 'Huskers in the College World Series

Sun Devils having fun in Omaha
The College World Series is a unique baseball experience. More even than the ''ping'' of aluminum bats, players approach the game with an all-out enthusiasm and a series of high-fives and back slaps for their teammates between every inning.

Gators one victory away from championship series
There is still plenty of baseball left to play at the College World Series, but Florida is sitting in a pretty good spot to at least play in the best-of-3 championship series.

Where no Gator has treaded
Jeff Corsaletti said he and his Florida teammates were happy to be the visiting team in Sunday's College World Series game against Nebraska.

What, Jeff Corsaletti was asked, could top his performance Sunday night?

All in good fun
Players tend to approach College World Series games with an all-out enthusiasm that borders on recklessness. Sometimes, they cross that border: Sunday, for instance, when Arizona State star Travis Buck attempted to steal home with the bases loaded in the ninth inning and was easily tagged out.

Corsaletti captures NU's attention
Florida center fielder Jeff Corsaletti stepped to the plate in the sixth inning, and the entire Nebraska outfield stepped back. Way back.
