In recent weeks, caps and gowns have been the fit of choice on campus and graduates across the nation marched to “Pomp and Circumstance” while proud parents dabbed their eyes at graduation ceremonies. No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks -- school's out for summer and, for some, school’s out forever!
But on the baseball diamond, recent graduates and underclassmen have a few more weeks in uniform for Regionals and Super Regionals, on the road to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska in mid-June. Whether you are following the games, or just want to be true to your school, Baseball BBQ has you covered. We have the perfect gifts for dads or grads so students, alumni, and fans can out-tailgate their biggest rivals and remember alma mater at the grill.
Last year, Baseball BBQ was thrilled when school officials from the defending 2021 College Baseball National Champion Mississippi State Bulldogs asked us to produce our bat-handle BBQ tools and cutting boards for the Bulldogs. Pretty soon after that, fans grilling in the Left Field Lounge at Dudy Noble Field were stepping up to the plate like big leaguers and college licensing became a fun part of the Baseball BBQ business. Now, a little more than a year later, Baseball BBQ produces licensed products for nearly three dozen top colleges and universities including 2022's defending national champions, the Ole Miss Rebels, along with most of the favorites to win the 2023 College World Series.
No matter which teams end up traveling to Omaha, Baseball BBQ will be there waiting in our booth in the Omaha Baseball Village with all our College Collection products on display and available for purchase. Last year was our first trip to Omaha and we could not have had more fun. We put a lot of smiles on the faces of happy customers, learned the words to all the best fight songs, met a bunch of the players from different teams, and enjoyed all the "friendly" trash talk of rival fans.
We're excited to be back again this year and have expanded our booth setup so we can greet more fans and serve move customers. We also plan to make time for some fun to see some baseball — and visit the Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, which EVERYONE recommended!
If you are making the trip to Omaha and will be in town for all the fun, please stop by our booth for a special surprise. We love to talk baseball and BBQ — and we love the school spirit of the College World Series.
