It isn’t just for baseball.  Don Luttrell and his wife, Linda, from Zion Crossroads followed the men’s basketball team to Omaha two years ago.

They became familiar with Omaha from the 2011 trip for the College World series.  Now they’re back with high hopes after arriving late Sunday night for the championship series.    

"We’ve watched it evolve and I think we’re at the top of our game now," said Don Luttrell.

At this point, UVA needs to be at the top of its game.

It’ll take two straight wins in the next two days for the Cavaliers to win the national baseball championship.  After falling behind, 9-0, in the first game, the Cavaliers’ rally fell short.
