Nine days after his program capped a storybook season that culminated in it's debut appearance in the College World Series, UC Irvine baseball coach Dave Serrano said Friday that the offseason is still merely a concept.
"It has been a whirlwind," Serrano said of the aftermath of a historic campaign in which the Anteaters (47-17-1) won the program's first Division I Regional, Super Regional, and finished tied for third in Omaha, where their two dramatic extra-inning victories thrilled a national television audience and, as Serrano has said, put UCI baseball on the map.
"It has been crazy busy, but I wouldn't want it any other way," said Serrano, who has set about plans for his fourth year at the helm with his trademark enthusiasm. "I've been having a lot of meetings and returning a lot of e-mails and phone calls. I know doing all this was because of the great year we had and I'll take it."
