What's your point? The NCAA calls it the Women's College World Series.

It isn't World and the only reason it says Women's is that the Baseball Championship claims to be World.

None of our championships are world. But their names are World-whatever.

Which has made the monikers incorrect. Every other NCAA sport except baseball and softball are NCAA championships, why do the egos get in the way of being correct?

And don't get me wrong, I've been saying the same thing about MLB for decades. But at least they allow teams from other countries (for the right $$).

Prior to the World Baseball Classic, the closest thing to a "world" anything was in LL even though they slanted the rules to favor the US

Add:

Ron Alexander to Crew 1.

Assume adding a 4th to Crew 2, also; we should know in 30+ minutes.


Typical of NCAA (lack of) thought process; who in their right mind coordinating umpires rotates U1 to PU and brings the fresh (didn't work last game ) umpire to U3??
