Men's College World Series by the numbers
1: The number of overall No. 1 seeds to win the title since the current 64-team format was instituted in 1999. The top-seeded Miami Hurricanes hoisted the trophy that same year.
10.8: The average runs per game that unseeded TCU has plated throughout the NCAA tournament. Sheesh.
$50: How much No. 7 Virginia recruiting and operations assistant Bryce Rosenberg paid for “The Jacket,” a retro UVA bomber that each game’s team MVP has the honor of wearing from the post-game presser until the ’Hoos’ next outing. The brotherhood of the traveling jacket.
68: How many years have passed since Wake Forest last made the MCWS. And it wasn’t just their most recent trip — they won their only natty in that 1955 tourney.
188: The number of strikeouts that No. 5 LSU junior Paul Skenes has so far this season, more than any other MCWS pitcher.
Thousands: How many gummy worms Oral Roberts players have consumed at first base. At least now we know what Golden Eagles eat.
