College World Series Winners and their Juco Bandit Ties

Last night we put the ribbon on what was the 2021 College Baseball Season with Mississippi State winning their first National Title Ever. 

With that as many know they had multiple Junior College Players that made impacts. 

But what about the other levels of College Baseball? Division 2? Division 3? NAIA? Did those teams have any guys that made impacts on their teams winning the 2021 National Title for their respected Division?

We’ve said this the past few times we have put stuff out but the question will still always be asked. The Juco Route will get you where you need to be. Where you can play. And where you can make an impact. Every level of College baseball had a Juco Bandit on their roster. And they all made an impact in one way or another.
