Rosenblatt Stadium isn't located in California. Sometimes it just feels like it.
But if one College World Series legend had gotten his way, the event would have moved to L.A. from the Big O more than four decades ago.
Since The 'Blatt first welcomed the College World Series in 1950, no state has sent as many teams as many times as has the Golden State, a total of 13 different teams for a whopping 73 CWS appearances. Only nine times in 60 years has the eight-team field not included at least one school from California. In 1988, half of the CWS field came from the one state.
