Best All Time College Baseball World Series
The 2008 College World Series was the most outstanding CWS of all time. Reason? The Champion was a huge underdog, the Fresno State Bulldogs. Fresno State's Tommy Mendoca was declared as Most Outstanding Player in the tournament.
The 2008 College World Series was a highly anticipated event that was held between June 14 and June 25 2008 in Omaha, Nebraska. This was the 62nd series for CWS. Fresno State was the lowest ranked team ever that won the National Championship title in any sport. Tommy Mendoca, who was a sophomore at that time and playing as 3rd baseman, was named the Most Outstanding Player of the series. During the series, Mendoca hit 4 home runs and had 11 RBI’s.
