As you can see, the fans were chomping at the bit to get in the stadium for the possible series clinching game 2 from Jim Patterson Saturday night versus the Kennesaw State Owls. We set the record last night with 5,351 people in attendance in what was one of the more raucous games I have ever been to. What more could we do? How bout putting another 656 people in the house! The CardNation broke the long-standing attendance record, ha, and were even rowdier tonight with a total of 6,007! I wanted to put together a post with some pictures and include the last minutes of the game plus the dog-pile celebration as the Cards win the game 7-4 and win the Louisville Super Regional and advance to the College World Series. I hope you enjoy!
This weekend, the Louisville Cardinals will take on the Kennesaw State Owls in the NCAA Baseball Super Regionals. The winner of the 3-game series will advance to the College World Series. We had hoped that information would be released tonight as to when the games would be at Jim Patterson Stadium. It now appears that the information won’t be released until Tuesday morning.
The series will begin either Friday or Saturday.
