Great video shows the only MLB player from tiny Coastal Carolina watching the final out of the College World Series during warm ups


Coastal Carolina, a school with fewer than 10,000 students in Conway, South Carolina, won their first NCAA championship in any sport when they beat Arizona in Game 3 of the College World Series championship series on Thursday afternoon.

Coastal Carolina is so new to the national baseball scene that they currently have just one former player among the approximately 800 players currently on Major League Baseball rosters: rookie utility player Taylor Motter of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Motter was in the middle of warm ups when the Rays put the end of the College World Series game on the videoboard in the outfield. The team captured this cool video of Motter watching the final strike and then ripping off his warmup jacket to reveal a Coastal Carolina t-shirt.

Here is another view of Motter and his shirt, in a video congratulating his school.

Hey @CoastalBaseball, @taylormotter7 has something to tell you: Congrats, #CollegeWorldSeries champs!
