​College of Charleston knocks baseball out of NCAA Tournament

Fans will have to wait until next spring to see another Auburn team run onto the diamond. Hours after the Tigers’ softball team was eliminated from the Women’s College World Series, the baseball team fell to College of Charleston, 3-2, on Sunday, May 31, in Tallahassee, Florida. The loss eliminated the Tigers from the NCAA Tournament. Both teams went down in order in the first inning, and a rain delay halted the game before the second inning could begin. The game was suspended and the teams resumed play after a six hour and twenty minute delay. Charleston didn’t take long to break the scoreless tie. In the Cougars’ first at-bat following the delay, Nick Pappas hit a two-run home run off Auburn’s starting pitcher Dalton Rentz to give Charleston a 1-0 lead. Auburn fought back to tie the game in the bottom of the fourth inning, starting when Charleston starter Nathan Helvey issued a one-out walk to Daniel Robert, and Robert advanced to second on Anfernee Grier’s infield single.

‘Heck’le of a ball game with Section 111

The Helmet Guy is known around campus for his booming voice when he leads cheers for Auburn baseball, and recently, softball as the team continues to succeed. But it’s not just the Helmet Guy who keeps the crowd pumped. Baseball’s official heckling club, Section 111, has been filling the gaps of game silence in their own fashion.
