OMAHA, Neb. — Sixth-ranked Georgia spent Father’s Day at the College World Series by holding a one-hour workout at Creighton University followed by a two-hour lunch visit to The Omaha Home for Boys.
Along with their Lions Club hosts, the Bulldog coaches and players ate lunch with the residents of the Omaha Home for Boys. They watched a brief video detailing the history of the facility, got a tour of the grounds and then played various games in the recreation center with them. It was a enjoyable afternoon and a welcome break for the Bulldogs, according to head coach David Perno.
“We had a great time visiting with the kids there, and our team got a chance to get to know them a little bit,” said Perno. “It’s always good to have an opportunity to try and make a positive impact on young people’s lives. The College World Series experience is more than just baseball, and I’m glad we’re able to give something back to the community here in Omaha.”
The Bulldogs (42-23-1) were off Sunday following their 7-4 win over top-ranked Miami (Fla.) on Saturday night in front of 23,039 at Rosenblatt Stadium. They beat Stanford 4-3 in a winner’s bracket matchup Monday behind senior right-hander Nick Montgomery.
The Bulldogs won’t have to play again until Friday at 1 p.m. Stanford will play Wednesday at 6 p.m. against Miami, a 7-5 winner over Florida State on Monday afternoon.
Georgia is 3-2 all-time versus Stanford. The previous meeting with the Cardinal came in a regional in 1992 in Tallahassee, Fla., with Stanford winning 7-3.
