College World Series--How It Works



Yesterday, the seeds and brackets were announced for the 2016 College World Series. We all know that the road to Omaha is long, but it’s also twisting with a hybrid of different tourney formats involved. So, NoDef is offering a quick primer as we prepare to watch five Louisiana teams compete for the big prize.


Tiger TV


LSU baseball takes the mound in about a month and there will be plenty of opportunity to watch the Purple n’ Gold. For the second year running, all 56 of the team’s regular season games will be televised. (The post-season will, of course, also be televised, but that run has been short for the Tigers in the past two years).


Today in NOLA: 9.1.14


Happy Labor Day! We’ve made it through another August in New Orleans—not that it’s about to cool down just yet. If you’re not spending this holiday Monday grilling or chilling, how about going out to the ball game? For Labor Day, Antenna Gallery presents a special set of documentaries about the lives and work of labor activists. Plus, a daring classic film that was banned on release. Details tonight:


ULL, LSU Snag Top-8 Seeds in NCAA Baseball Tourney


Louisiana will be well represented in the Division I Baseball Championship this summer. LSU and ULL were respectively given the eight and six seeds in the NCAA’s summer classic. The ranking guarantees that in addition to hating regionals, both teams will have home field advantage should they advance to the super-regionals.


Zephyrs Back to .500


by Mike Horst

The New Orleans Zephyrs battled the Nashville Sounds and the elements yesterday to get to the all important .500 mark yesterday. After waiting out a two and a half hour rain delay, the Z’s relied on their bullpen for the 2-1 victory over Nashville.


Zephyrs Win Third Straight, Turner and Lucas Called Up


by Mike Horst

The New Orleans Zephyrs won another tight game Sunday night. This time, they took down the Iowa Cubs in Des Moines by a score of 5-3. Brian Flynn got the win for the Z’s, continuing his solid stint since being called up from Jacksonville. He struck out a season-high eight batters to earn his first win on the road. Bryan Petersen led the hometowns offensively with three hits and two RBIs.


Scrappy Zephyrs Stay Within Striking Distance


by Mike Horst

The Zephyrs continued their dominance over the Omaha Storm Chasers Sunday with a 5-1 victory at the Shrine on Airline. Doug Mathis was lights out, allowing two hits over seven innings to earn his first win as a starter for the Z’s.


Zephyrs Split Four Games in Albuquerque


by Mike Horst

The New Orleans Zephyrs earned a four game series split in Albuquerque with a wild 9-8 victory over the Albuquerque Isotopes Monday afternoon in 11 innings. Matt Downs knocked in Ed Lucas in the top of the 11th for the winning run. Jordan Smith pitched two innings in relief to get the win. The win raises the Z’s record to 14 wins and 15 losses on the 2013 season.


Zephyrs Lose to Miami Marlins, Win With Major League Appearance


by Mike Horst

While Manager Ron Hassey probably isn’t thrilled about losing 7-0 in front of a home crowd of over 9,000, one has to suspect that he understands that winning Saturday’s exhibition game against the Miami Marlins would’ve been icing on the New Orleans Zephyrs’ cake. In terms of haggard sports cliches, the real victory was that the game was played in the first place.


Major League Debut: Zephyrs Host Miami Marlins in Opener


by Mike Horst

Springtime in New Orleans: The weather gets warmer, fest season builds to its Fair Grounds crescendo and the Zephyrs start another season of professional baseball in Metairie. The Zephyrs host their parent club, the Miami Marlins, in an preseason exhibition game at Zephyr Field on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Marlins are the first Major League Baseball team to visit Zephyr Field in 14 years.
