Vandy wins 1st CWS championship

The talk at the College World Series was about how few home runs were hit at TD Ameritrade Park.

Well, one was hit Wednesday night -- and the folks in Nashville undoubtedly will be talking about it for a long time.

John Norwood's tiebreaking homer in the top of the eighth inning carried Vanderbilt to a 3-2 win over Virginia in the third and deciding game of the CWS finals, giving the Commodores their first national championship.

"I thought it was gone, but you never know in this park," Norwood said. "I was just hoping it went out, and if it didn't, I knew my teammates would pick me up. It's a home run, but it's also a team effort to get here. We were confident the whole entire year."

Norwood turned on Nick Howard's 97 mph fastball and sent it into the left-field bullpen for only the 25th home run hit in the four years the CWS has been played in the cavernous TD Ameritrade Park.

It was Norwood's third homer of the year, his first since April 19 and Vanderbilt's first since May 16. It also was only the third home run in 16 CWS games this year and the 22nd in 72 games by the Commodores (51-21).

Congrats Commodores!

Re: Vandy wins 1st CWS championship

I'm a little surprised that this is their first one. I thought they've always had a pretty good program.

Oh and... they need to change those frickin' bats.
