Back on the Map: Maryland Baseball Getting National Recognition

While the NCAA Baseball Tournament and the College World Series are big sporting events around the United States, they are typically not very popular in Maryland. Towson baseball gathered some attention in the the state after making the Tournament last year, but they lost in the regionals. Maryland had not made the Tournament since 1971, and the baseball team was often forgotten about, especially with the success of the lacrosse program. However, after a run to the ACC Tournament championship game and a regional championship in Columbia this weekend, the baseball program is starting to get some national attention. Several alums and other celebrities have tweeted about the team’s run. Here are some:

Ravens WR and Former Terp Torrey Smith

ESPN Sportscaster and Maryland Alum Scott Van Pelt

Terp Alum and current-New England Revolution Forward Patrick Mullins

Maryland Football Coach Randy Edsall

Even the Baltimore Orioles Jumped in on the action

Regardless of what happens this weekend in Charlottesville, Maryland baseball has a lot to be proud of. They are making a name for themselves, and they are back on the map for the first time in a long time.
