MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Hundreds showed up to Coastal Carolina University Thursday to see the Chanticleers baseball team off as they head for the NCAA World Series in Omaha.

The team met fans in front of Springs Brooks Stadium before boarding a bus for the 20 hour drive.

This is Coastal Carolina’s first appearance in the College World Series after sweeping the LSU Tigers in last week’s Super Regional.

Seven other teams have earned the right to play for the World Series title; the Florida Gators, the Miami Hurricanes, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Oklahoma State Cowboys, TCU Horned Frogs, US Santa Barbara Gauchos and the Arizona Wildcats.

Opening ceremonies begin Friday night.

The Chanticleers first game, in the double elimination championship series, is Sunday evening at eight o’clock, against the top ranked University of Florida Gators.

WMBF’s sports director Joe Murano will be there all weekend, providing coverage starting on Friday.
