UCLA draws TCU in Super Regional at Jackie Robinson Stadium

From UCLA:

LOS ANGELES – UCLA has been selected as one of eight NCAA Super Regional hosts, as college baseball’s NCAA Tournament continues this weekend. The Bruins (45-14) will face TCU (40-20) in a best-of-three series at Jackie Robinson Stadium beginning Friday.

UCLA will host an NCAA Super Regional for the second time since the current postseason format expanded in 1999. Game times are 6 p.m. Friday (ESPN), 6 p.m. Saturday (ESPN2) and 7 p.m. Sunday, if necessary (ESPN2). UCLA last hosted a Super Regional in 2010, defeating Cal State Fullerton, two games to one.

The Bruins swept the NCAA Los Angeles Regional at home over the weekend, advancing to the Super Regional round for the third time in six seasons. UCLA defeated Creighton, 13-5, in the NCAA Regional final on Sunday.

“I’d like to thank our fans who came to the ballpark last weekend and watched us win the Los Angeles Regional,” eighth-year UCLA head coach John Savage said “Our program relies on strong fan support, and I urge those fans to come back for the Super Regional this weekend and give us a great home field advantage.”

All-session ticket packages for the upcoming NCAA Los Angeles Super Regional will be on sale beginning Tuesday at 10 a.m. through UCLA’s Central Ticket Office. Fans can order tickets online (tickets.ucla.edu) or by calling (310) 825-2101.

TCU defeated Mississippi in the College Station Regional final, 7-4, on Monday evening to advance to the NCAA Los Angeles Super Regional. The Horned Frogs finished the regular season tied for first place with New Mexico, at 18-6, in the Mountain West standings.

“TCU had a very successful season in the Mountain West and won a challenging regional in College Station at Texas A&M,” Savage said. “This will be a very tough test for our program, and we’re looking forward to opening the series on Friday at Jackie Robinson Stadium.”

All-session reserved tickets cost $42 for adults and $30 for youth (ages 3-16). Pending availability, single-game tickets may go on sale later this week.

    What I had previously anonymously posted was that Jon sent UCLA the book “He’s just not that into you” quite a while back. I’m not really sure how you can justify removing that, Jon. Are you the type who suppresses any criticism? I really don’t think that is who you want to be.

    As per the “Good Manners of Blogging,” Mr. Gold has every right to remove any comments that attack him personally, or make outrageous and unfounded accusations.

    Not only do they not offer opposing views, they are tiresome.

    If you have disparaging remarks about Mr. Gold, walk over to the grave of Alice Roosevelt Longworth in Washington DC and whisper your thoughts there, since she often remarked “If you have notbhing good to say about someone, sit next to me.”

    Lovingingly yours,

    Dear Em:

    I’m pretty sure Jon wouldn’t remove comments simply because they ‘attack him personally’, he’s way better than that, as most have come to know here over his time. Seems to me he more likely would remove comments if they attacked other posters. And if you don’t criticize what you dislike, you may as well get used to the idea that only others can make improvements to your world for you. Regarding this blog, I think it wise to criticize only areas that can use improvement, while occasionally praising those that are well done.

    jon does not negative comments directed at jon. Any negative comments result in you getting BANNED. Minor or Major….he’s a little too sensitive.
