2006 College World Series Championship game at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska.


The College World Series or CWS is a baseball tournament held in Omaha, Nebraskamarker that is the culmination of the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship, which determines the NCAA Division I college baseball champion. The eight teams are split in to two, four team double elimination brackets with the winner of each bracket playing in the best-of-three championship series. The tournament takes place in June of each year.

History

Since 1950, the CWS has been held at Rosenblatt Stadiummarker in Omahamarker, Nebraskamarker; earlier tournaments were held at Hyames Fieldmarker in Kalamazoomarker, Michiganmarker (1947-48) and Wichitamarker, Kansasmarker (1949). The name "College World Series" (CWS) is derived from that of the Major League Baseball World Series championship; it is presently an MLB trademark licensed to the NCAA.

Contract extension

On June 10, 2008, the NCAA and College World Series of Omaha, Inc., which is the non-profit group that actually organizes the event, announced a new 25-year contract extension, keeping the CWS in Omaha through 2035. A memorandum of understanding had been reached by all parties on April 30.

The new contract will begin in 2011, the same year the tournament is scheduled to move from Johnny Rosenblatt Stadiummarker to the TD Ameritrade Park Omahamarker, a new ballpark across from Qwest Center Omahamarker.

Format changes

Through 1987, the College World Series was a pure double-elimination event. The format was changed in 1988, when the tournament was divided into two four-team double-elimination brackets, with the survivors of each bracket playing in a single championship game. The single-game championship was designed for network television, with the final game on CBS on Saturday afternoon.

In 2003, the tournament returned entirely to cable television on ESPN, which had been covering all of the other games of the CWS since 1982 (and a partial schedule since 1980). [59693] The championship final became a best-of-three series between the two bracket winners, with games scheduled for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday evenings. In the results shown here, Score indicates the score of the championship game(s) only. In 2008, the start of the CWS was moved back one day, and an extra day of rest was added in between bracket play and the championship series.

Since 1999, the four-team brackets in the CWS have been determined by the results of regional and super regional play, much like the NCAA basketball tournament. Prior to 1999, the pairings for the CWS were not determined until after the completion of the regional tournaments.

Before expanding to 64 teams in 1999, the Division I tournament began with 48 teams, split into 8 six-team regionals. The winner of each regional advanced to the College World Series. The regionals were a test of endurance, as teams had to win at least four games over four days, sometimes five if a team dropped into the loser's bracket, placing a premium on pitching. Ironically, in the last two years of the six-team regional format, the eventual CWS champion (LSU in 1997, USC in 1998) had to battle back from the loser's bracket in the regional to advance to Omaha.

With some 293 Division I teams playing, the NCAA switched to a 64 team Regional field in 1999, with 8 National (super) Seed teams, divied up into 16 four-team regionals. Each team seeded 1 thru 4—with the winners of each of the 16 "Regionals" advancing on to eight two-team, best of three format "Super Regionals". (NCAA women's softball has 16 National (super) Seeds.) Those eight Super Regional winners advancing to the CWS in Omaha, NE. A 4 seeded Regional team, the lowest possible, (akin to a #13-16 seed in college basketball's March Madness) the Fresno State Bulldogs, won the CWS national championship in 2008, against the Bulldogs of Georgia in the championship series, winning two of three.
