The Pac-12 is one of the best conferences in college baseball. It’s a safe statement after the University of Arizona claimed their fourth National Championship in school history by sweeping the two-time defending champion South Carolina Gamecocks in 2012. Their coach was also rewarded. Andy Lopez was named the National Coach of the Year by the National College Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). Arizona was also able to lay claim to the Pac-12 title last season; an honor in which they shared with another national power, UCLA. UCLA finished one game better than Arizona in the overall record, and advanced to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. They meet in the winner’s bracket with Arizona getting the better of their conference rival. Still, two teams in the College World Series, is a signal to the rest of the NCAA that the Pac-12 is once again a dominant conference. Continue reading 2013 CBD Season Preview: Pac 12
