(Above watch the 2014-15 highlights and get ready for whats to come this year.)
Sunday afternoon, the #21 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers took on the defending College World Series champions in the #4 Virginia Cavaliers. Coastal played well and got clutch hitting and good base running down the stretch to get the W. It is nice to see the Chants ranked again and after this win, coupled with the recent rout of Appalachian State, don’t be surprised to see them move up even higher in the rankings soon. Coastal was a strong team last season with big wins including victories over Clemson, UNC and college baseball powerhouse South Carolina. After the experience of last season along with the experience of 21 year Chants head coach Gary Gilmore, don’t count the Chants out of any game this year.
Coastal has always prided itself on their baseball program, so it is only fitting that they now have one of the greatest stadiums in the nation. The Chants are taking on Ohio State and Duke at home this week, so take advantage of the opportunity to see one of the most talented teams in the nation in an incredible ballpark.
