16 homers in 10 games most since CWS move to TD Ameritrade
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Louisville’s Logan Taylor hit the College World Series’ 16th home run, the most since the event moved to TD Ameritrade Park in 2011.
Taylor’s homer against TCU on Thursday night came in the 10th game of the CWS. The previous high at the stadium was 15 homers in 16 games in 2015. Last year, there were 10 in 17 games.
College baseball coaches and fans bemoaned the scarcity of homers at the expansive stadium after a total of six were hit in 30 combined CWS games in 2013 and ’14.
The numbers throughout college baseball increased in 2015 when the NCAA put a flat-seam ball into play to counter severe drops in offense since bat specifications changed in 2011. The new ball replaced the more wind-resistant raised-seam ball.
