The ultimate prize for any Division I baseball program is to see your season end in Omaha. But which states boast the highest numbers of College World Series trips and national championships?
Here are seven that make a case to be called the best college baseball state.
Editor's Note: The numbers are reflected only by current Division I baseball programs. They do not reflect former Division I schools or programs which have been cut.
California (80 CWS appearances, 23 titles, 8 runner-ups)
USC claims the most titles out of any program in any state with a massive 12 national championships, the most recent occurring back in 1998. Ten of the titles came during the Rod Dedeaux era, including five straight from 1970-1974.
Other programs to win the CWS include California, Cal State Fullerton, Pepperdine, Stanford, Fresno State and UCLA.
Texas (57 CWS appearances, 7 titles, 7 runner-ups)
The Lone Star state had its most successful postseason in 2014. Three of the eight teams in Omaha represented Texas with the Longhorns, TCU and Texas Tech making appearances. For the Red Raiders, it marked the program's first-ever CWS trip.
Florida (54 CWS appearances, 4 titles, 7 runner-ups)
The only titles for the state have come from the Hurricanes, who earned four titles under skippers Ron Frazer and Jim Morris and ties for fourth-most by a program.
The Seminoles have the most CWS appearances without a national title and have finished as the runner-up three times. The Gators have made recent surges to the CWS but finished second in 2005 and 2011.
Arizona (38 CWS appearances, 9 titles, 7 runner-ups)
Meanwhile, Arizona won its fourth CWS championship just four years ago over threepeat-seeking South Carolina, it's first since 1986 back in the Jerry Kindall era.
Louisiana (21 CWS appearances, 6 titles)
Three other programs in Louisiana have made trips to the CWS with Tulane earning a pair of bids and one each for Louisiana-Lafayette and New Orleans.
Oklahoma (29 CWS appearances, 3 titles, 5 runner-ups)
The Sooners have claimed a pair of national championships although they came nearly 43 years apart. Oklahoma State has reached the championship series six times with its only title coming in 1959. Despite only three titles, the programs have combined for 29 CWS appearances and the Cowboys' 19 trips trail only Texas, Miami, Florida State, Arizona State and USC.
South Carolina (24 CWS appearances, 2 titles, 4 runner-ups)
Clemson's championship efforts haven't been awarded just yet, as the Tigers haven't claimed a title in 12 CWS appearances nor have they made it to the championship series. The Citadel is the third program in South Carolina to travel to Omaha back in 1990.
