Charlottesville Regional Team Capsules - Top Seeded Virginia

via collegebaseball360.com

Just the fact that Oklahoma is playing in baseball's post season is a considerable improvement considering that less than a month ago many of us had this team pegged as staying home this summer. Instead the Sooners are off to Virginia to take a shot at reaching their second College World Series in three years. The field of four teams in the Charlottesville Regional is deep and experienced. Virginia is the host team and no doubt has the thought of revenge on their minds.

Oklahoma moved past Virginia, in the 2010 Super Regional, on their way to Omaha. The Cavilers are led in batting by Stephen Bruno who is hitting .362 with 6 home runs and 48 RBI. As a team Virginia is batting .298 with Colin Harrington (.312) and Derek Fisher (.309) being the other two batters hitting above .300. Fisher also leads the team with 7 home runs and 50 RBI.
