SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - We are just 48 hours away from first pitch of Notre Dame Baseball’s first appearance in a super regional since 2002.

The Irish were picked to finish last in the ACC Atlantic Division and second to last in the conference as a whole. Now they find themselves one of the final 16 teams in the country, playing for a trip to Omaha.

At the beginning of the year, not many people saw this coming, neither did the experts. But the Irish certainly did.

They knew they had the talent; they just had to prove people wrong.

And have they ever.

“I think it’s the toughness,” first baseman Niko Kavadas said. “We never count ourselves out. We kind of have this killer mentality where we may not be the most talented team between the lines. But we’re damn sure going to find a way to go 1-0 at the end of the day. I think that’s something we pride ourselves on and helps us get to this point where we’re at in the season and continuing to play.”

Notre Dame won every single ACC series except for one.

They’ve mounted major comebacks.

Now they’re ready to continue proving they belong here.

“Our guys played an extremely tough schedule,” head coach Link Jarrett said. “We traveled 9,000 miles so far. They’ve played every sort of team you can play. I think they’ve delivered in every phase of the game. We’ve won games in every possible way.”

Link Jarrett mentioned they’ve travelled 9,000 miles so far. Today they added 713 more miles to that total, as the Irish travelled to Starkville to prepare to take on Mississippi State in the Super Regional.
