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.
