LSU senior finally gets to play in Omaha

Several LSU baseball players will live out their childhood dreams when the Tigers take the field on Sunday night against UCLA in the College World Series.
 
Senior left fielder Raph Rhymes of Monroe has been to Omaha before as a kid, but this visit is very special.


"I came to Omaha as a 13-year-old and have been there three or four times," Rhymes said. "Now I get to go play, it's surreal." 
 
Rhymes had a chance to sign a professional baseball contract last year, but decided to return for his senior season for this opportunity. 
 
"The goal has always been to get to Omaha, and that's why I came back," Rhymes said.
 
And Rhymes says now the goal is to win a national championship for the best college baseball fans in the country. 
 
"I've heard it's like a home game in Omaha when LSU is playing," Rhymes said.
