FAVORITE SUPER REGIONAL MATCHUPS 2010

The Super Regional will be held in 8 brackets with 2 teams in each one. Each bracket will be decided in a best out of 3 series and the winners of each bracket will go to the Omaha World Series Tournament. I chose to highlight the 3 most interesting Super Regional brackets. The reason I consider them the most interesting is simple. The three biggest baseball producing states in the country are Texas, California, and Florida. These three match ups can be considered the closest hometown rivalries this year’s College Baseball can offer. They can be compared to a freeway series in Los Angeles or a subway series in New York. As far as College Baseball is concerned, this is classic.
