The University of Michigan baseball team finished its season just short of a national championship. In the deciding game of the College World Series final on Wednesday, Vanderbilt beat the Wolverines 8-2. U of M won Game 1, but lost two straight to the Commodores in Omaha, Nebraska.
Michigan Radio sports commentator John U. Bacon spoke to Morning Edition host Doug Tribou about the series and how U of M's appearance in Omaha bucked a longstanding trend in college baseball.
Michigan last won the national championship in 1962. This was their first trip to Omaha since 1984.
