Following College World Series on Web, Phone Almost Like Being There

June 17, 2011

You tried everything but just couldn’t make the trip to Omaha for the College World Series this year. Or maybe you made it to Omaha, but can’t attend all the games. Now you’re trying to stay on top of the action from afar. No worries. Just tap into the resources on the web outlined below and you’ll feel like you’re right there – almost.

Ways to stay on top of all the CWS action:

On the web
Twitter is the best way to get real-time updates and reactions of others watching the games from vantage points including the bleachers, press box, sports bar or living room.

You don’t even need a Twitter account. Just go to and type related search terms in the search box. For starters, type in hash tag #CWS. Or try searching the name of a team, player, broadcaster, etc. that interests you. It’s like watching the game with dozens of friends you have never met. Easier yet, just check out the list I created on Twitter.

If you want to follow the top sources of info on Facebook here are a few pages you should like:

  • College Baseball 360
  • TD Ameritrade Park
  • ESPN Omaha
  • The College Baseball World Series – Omaha, NE

You can also like the pages of your favorite schools in the tournament to get more in-depth coverage and photos.

Direct sites

  • for daily game summaries and photos, player profiles and in-depth stories.
  • D1 Baseball for real-time scores and links to game recaps, detailed stats, etc.
  • Espn3 to watch the games online from your home or office when you can’t watch on TV.

Text updates
Again this year, we at are offering free a postseason text-message service. Get details>>

You can also follow comments Twitter users post during the CWS on your mobile phone by texting follow @twitterhandle to 40404. Be sure to replace @twitterhandle with the actual name used by the person(s) on Twitter (i.e. @cb360updates).
CAUTION: this can result in you receiving a lot of text messages and should only be considered if you have an unlimited text plan and are able to keep up with all the messages.

Of course, you still have the old school way of following sports on tv. Get programming schedule>>
