The ‘Dores are National Champions!

Posted by on Friday, June 27, 2014 in Vandy Athletics.

The Vanderbilt Commodores are the 2014 national champions of college baseball! Congratulations to Coach Tim Corbin and his team on a remarkable season. On Wednesday they capped by a tremendous run through the NCAA tournament with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over a very talented Virginia team. The win summed up the Commodore season perfectly; it was a close game with great pitching and VU came up with the big hit in the clutch.

Here’s a game summary in gif form:

First Vanderbilt conquered.
Then they prevailed.
Finally, they anchored down.

Despite the huge stars who’ve been a part of Commodore Baseball in recent years, like David Price, Sonny Gray, and Pedro Alvarez, this is the first VU team to make it to the finals, let alone take home the trophy. In fact, this is the first national championship for any men’s team at VU, and this team joins the 2007 Women’s Bowling team as Vanderbilt’s other team to take home a national championship.

This was a special season from a special team. And as you can see below, Commodore Nation is proud of the #VandyBoys!
