For most of the years since 1933, UCLA baseball players have peered into the stands at their home field and smiled at their usual assortment of fans. Moms, dads and girlfriends for sure. But many times, they also nod to disheveled retired Marines, ex-Navy officers with oak-leaf "scrambled eggs" on their caps and proud veterans still wearing camouflage. "When I was there in the '60s, watching us was an outlet for veterans," former Bruins first baseman Rick Ganulin recalled.

UCLA baseball players get the weekend off to enjoy some honors. The Bruins play Mississippi State in the best-of-three College World Series final, which begins Monday.

San Diego third baseman Kris Bryant entered the NCAA baseball tournament a potential top-five draft pick. He left with a bottom 10 moment. Bryant was hitting .340 with a nation-leading 31 home runs before a lost weekend at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Bryant went two for 13 in four games. Both were infield singles. “I didn't have the weekend I wanted to,” Bryant said. “I didn't really help my team as much as I wanted to, but sometimes you have to tip your hat to the pitcher and sometimes they make a good pitch.” Bryant's best moment came in a 6-0 loss to UCLA that eliminated the Toreros.

UCLA played the toughest schedule in college baseball and won a share of the Pac-12 Conference title. On Monday, the NCAA rewarded the Bruins by seeding them No. 2 nationally in the 64-team playoffs. "It says a lot about our players and the job they did," said UCLA Coach John Savage, whose team is 42-14. "The bar is about 35 wins on the West Coast. When you get to 40, it's pretty unique. " UCLA will host a regional, and Cal State Fullerton and Pepperdine will be on the road when the playoffs begin Friday.

The NCAA baseball selection committee appears to be having an off season. The 64-team tournament started nearly three weeks ago with eight seeded teams. Only three remain — No. 1 North Carolina, No. 3 Oregon State and No. 4 Louisiana State. All three came out of the weekend in the losers' bracket at the College World Series. UCLA and North Carolina State, who play Tuesday at TD Ameritrade Stadium, were not projected to be here. Yet both are two victories shy of going to the best-of-three final.
