Warren Morris, Robbie Morrison to meet

0

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.
