OMAHA, Neb. — Sixth-ranked Georgia enjoyed an off day at the College World Series by having a picnic with family, friends and fans at the Cooper Farm which is part of the Omaha Home for Boys complex.

The Lion’s Club, Georgia’s host at the CWS, helped organize the event. Following a picnic, the Bulldogs played horseshoes and then went to the recreation center to play games with the residents including foosball, ping pong, pool, shuffleboard and air hockey.

Following Monday’s night 4-3 win over Stanford at Rosenblatt Stadium, the Bulldogs will not play again until Friday at 2 p.m. Georgia will face the winner of the Miami-Stanford elimination game. The Bulldogs need one more win in their half of the bracket to advance to the championship best-of-three series.

“It was nice to come back and interact with the kids again, it’s been a great experience for our players, and I know they were excited to see us when we drove up,” said Georgia coach David Perno. “The picnic was very relaxing for everyone, and it’s always good to take your mind off baseball for a day here. We’ve been fortunate to win our first two games and now have some time off.”
