College World Series

From Academic Kids

The College World Series is the tournament which determines the NCAA Division I collegiate baseball champion. It takes place in June of each year. Since 1950, the tournament has been held at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska; previous tournaments were held in Kalamazoo, Michigan (1947-48) and Wichita, Kansas (1949). The name is derived from that of the Major League Baseball World Series championship.

The 2005 College World Series takes place June 17-23 with championship games June 25-26/27. Participating teams include Arizona State, Baylor, Florida, Nebraska, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas, and Tulane.

The tournament field, which consists of the eight teams emerging from regional playoffs (or "Super-Regionals"), proceeds by means of double-elimination play. Until the late 1980s, the tournament was a pure double-elimination event. The format was changed later to have the final two teams with fewer than two losses play in a single championship game; still later, the tournament was divided into two double-elimination brackets, with the survivors of each bracket playing in a single championship game. The format was changed slightly starting with the 2003 event. The two four-team double-elimination brackets were retained, but the championship final became a best-of-3 series between the last two remaining teams. In the results shown here, Score indicates the score of the championship game(s) only.

The Division II tournament has been held in Montgomery, Alabama since 1985. The Division III tournament has been held in Appleton, Wisconsin since 2000.
