College World Series loaded with Houston-area baseball stars
The NCAA College World Series is where legends are made.
This year is no different with so many opportunities to make a life-long memories in Omaha, Nebraska, where players can become legends for their respective schools.
Several Houston-area alums are on the biggest stage in college baseball with their eye on the prize of a national championship.
Cypress Ranch is home to a pair of college stars in Elijah MacNamee of Mississippi State and Masen Hibbeler of the University of Texas. MacNamee has already had a "Field of Dreams" moment in the Super Regional against Florida State. The outfielder hit a game-winning bomb to extend the series with the No. 1 Seminoles, which eventually led to a World Series appearance. Hibbeler is the starting infielder for the Longhorns and has been a cornerstone in their lineup.
Texas is also a landing spot for Strake Jesuit’s Zach Zubia and Memorial’s Cody Clemens. Both are big hitters in the Longhorn lineup and both have unique paths. Clemens is the son of MLB legend Roger Clemens, while Zubia was a dual-sport star for the Crusaders and originally signed with Tulane. He led Jesuit to their best showing in Class 6A playoff history.
Hailing from Arkansas is shortstop Jax Biggers, formerly of Ridge Point, while Texas Tech has a pair of arms in Dylan Dusek of Kempner and Ryan Shetter of Friendswood. The Red Raiders are the anchors of the pitching staff. Zach Rheams of Brazoswood has been a mainstay in Texas Tech’s lineup all season.
