TJC Prepares To Host World Series

It's been an amazing year for baseball in the city of Tyler. UT Tyler was nearly perfect, Lee is in the third round of the playoffs, and TJC is preparing to host the NJCAA Division III College World Series. The Apaches couldn't have scripted it any better.

"The top eight teams (in the country) are coming to Tyler, Texas," said TJC Athletic Director Tim Drain who is also the tournament director.  "We're going to have great weather, thanks to (Mark) Scirto, and then Tyler is in it, and we're ranked number one in the country. It's a dream scenario so far."

"You know our guys, every time we've asked them to turn it up a level, they've done it," said TJC baseball coach Jon Groth, "to win a conference title a couple of weeks ago they did it, to win a district title last week they did it, and they're excited. We've been preparing all year for this tournament."

Festivities kick off with a free kids baseball clinic Friday, then first round action beginning Saturday morning.

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
