The College World Series will begin Saturday in Omaha, Neb., with a bit of local flavor in Rosenblatt Stadium.
The North Carolina Tar Heels count on Rob Wooten, a 2003 Charles B. Aycock High School graduate, as a key member of its pitching staff. The Tar Heels also have former Wilson Tob Ryan Graepel starting in the infield.
Also, Cliff Godwin, a 1996 Greene Central High School graduate, is the hitting coach for Louisiana State University. Godwin was a standout player for the Rams and at East Carolina University.
Furthermore, LSU's roster has three players who have signed to play for the Tobs this summer — right-handed pitcher Paul Bertuccini, left-hander Ryan Byrd and infielder-outfielder Chris McGhee.
