The CWS fan experience was coming to life as we walked into TD Ameritrade Park around 9:30.
We just concluded a presser with coaches only. Players are expected to be available after practice which begins at 4.
Here are Mike Bianco and Virginia coach Brian O’Connor with their opening statement comments at the presser:
Here, Bianco talks about what he remembers from the Virginia teams the Rebels faced in the 2009 super regional and the 2010 regional at Charlottesville. Both coaches say too much time has passed for those postseason matchups to matter this time, but it does help in just knowing a little bit about and understanding your foe, Bianco said.
