Big Train College Round Up and Players In Pro Ball

College World Series
 
College baseball's regular season has come to a close, but several future Big Train players are headed to postseason play. In total, eight players from the 2014 Big Train roster will be playing in the College World Series, and here's a breakdown of what each is facing in the Regional round of the tournament:

Henry Sisson will look to help the UNC Tarheels upset top-seeded Florida and second-seeded Long Beach State.

Shortstop Brandon Lowe and pitcher Tayler Stiles will both be playing for #2-seeded Maryland, who will look to edge out top-seeded South Carolina, Campbell and Old Dominion. This is Maryland's first tournament appearance since 1971.

First baseman Chris Lewis will be playing for Sacramento State, who have their work cut out for them against a deep region with Cal Poly, Arizona State and Pepperdine.

Outfielder Cody Brown and pitcher Jacob Billingsley will go head-to-head with first baseman Andrew Brown as Mississippi State and San Diego State fight it out to advance from the same region.
