There’s no place like home. Not only for the University of Miami baseball team, which posted a 32-4 home record—the best in college baseball—at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field this season, but also for the loyal fans who turn out to cheer on their beloved Hurricanes while enjoying ballpark traditions such as hot dogs, pretzels, milkshakes, and more.
Such was the scene at The Light over the past weekend as UM marked its 43rd consecutive postseason appearance by hosting the Coral Gables Regional, the first challenge on the road to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.
With a decisive 21-3 win over Columbia Monday night in the regional Championship game, the Hurricanes advance to its first Super Regional berth since 2010. Find complete coverage here.
This year, hundreds of orange-and-green-clad ’Canes fans—men, women, boys, and girls—started a new tradition at The Light: posing for photos next to the recently unveiled bronze statue of legendary UM baseball coach Ron Fraser, which stands at the entrance to the stadium. Enjoy the photo gallery.
