Warren Morris, Robbie Morrison to meet

Twenty years after the most famous moment in college baseball history, the two men who responsible will meet for the first time.  Warren Morris hit a game-winning home run in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs off of Miami’s Robbie Morrison to win the 1996 College World Series, 9-8.  The two men have never met or even spoken.  That will change this weekend and fans are invited to be a part of it.
