It was announced Tuesday that next SEC Storied Series will be about former LSU baseball player Warren Morris' championship-winning home run in the 1996 College World Series.

It will be titled "The Walk Off" and will air on Thursday, June 30, at 8pm CT on SEC Network. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

Twenty years ago he became the only man ever to hit a walk off home run to end the College World Series—and it was his only home run of the season. Warren Morris, just recovering from a broken bone in his right hand, could barely swing a bat. Still, legendary LSU coach Skip Bertman inserted him into the lineup in the title game of the college world series against the University of Miami.

It was an era in which home runs flew out of college ball parks at a record pace. But on this day, a terrific wind blowing in from left field had not allowed a single ball to leave the yard. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, LSU down by one and a man on base, one of the smallest players on either roster stepped up, his team in need of a big hit. Morris delivered arguably the biggest moment in college baseball history.

I was there with my then 10 year old daughter and 8 year old son. We sat in the bleachers down the 3rd base line. It was the most incredible moment in Sports that I have ever witnessed. My kids still talk about that trip to Omaha and the fun they had watching Alex Cora collapse on the field. What a great trip.
