Since its inception in 1947, the College World Series has grown into one of the premier events in college sports. It has produced countless memorable moments and has been a launching pad for future Major League Baseball stars. The tournament embodies the essence of collegiate athletics: passion, perseverance, and the pursuit of excellence.

As the 2024 College World Series begins, fans can look forward to a showcase of top-tier baseball, where every pitch, hit, and catch could make the difference between victory and defeat. The road to the championship is long and arduous, but for the teams that have made it to Omaha, the dream of hoisting the coveted trophy is now within reach.

This is the most top-heavy CWS in history. Just two conferences, the SEC and the ACC, make up this year’s field. These leagues are considered by far the two best in the sport and have four teams apiece.
