College World Series 2019: Schedule, start times, bracket, matchups with Michigan, Vanderbilt in championship series

The 2019 College World Series started Saturday, June 15, at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska. What began as a 64-team tournament has led us to the final two teams through three previous rounds of play: the regionals (in which teams were sorted into 16 groups of four teams playing a round-robin format), then the super regionals (where the 16 winners of the regionals were paired up into eight best-of-three sets) and finally the quarterfinal and semifinal sets.

Four teams entered the semifinal round, and Michigan emerged as the first finalist. This will be the Wolverines' first appearance in the College World Series championship round since 1962. Michigan will face Vanderbilt to determine who is the 2019 NCAA champion. Vanderbilt won the NCAA title in 2014 and finished as the runner-up in 2015. The Commodores have a program-record 57 victories, and have won 33 of their past 36 games.
