Babin have made the trip to Omaha every year for 20 years, regardless if the Tigers make it or not. 2014 COLLEGE WORLD SERIES Top Performers: Day 8 Breeze: Trio stars in Vanderbilt's 10-inning thriller Photos Kroll: Garrido sums up UT loss: ‘It’s a cruel game’ Breeze: Pitching fuels UVa.'s run to CWS Finals Photos Kroll: Ole Miss' well runs dry in loss to Virginia Top Performers: Day 7 Cross: Texas takes advantage of Vandy mistakes Kroll: Hinojosa remains talk of town Photos Top Five Plays through first 10 games Top Performers: Day 6 Cross: Bianco's boys have perfected elimination game Kroll: Ole Miss advances behind Allen Photos Top Performers: Day 5 Kroll: Hinojosa's homer leads Longhorns Photos Cross: Hollingsworth tosses gem in second start of season UC Irvine's Morales finds inspiration in his sister Top Performers: Day 4 Kroll: Cavs find time for it all in win Photos Cross: Virginia shows off pitching depth in 15 innings Cross: Ole Miss makes most of chances Photos Kroll: Texas Tech beaten at own game as CWS run ends Ole Miss goes to the zoo Meet the Bortles brothers Top Performers: Day 3 Kroll: Vandy hits magic number for CWS win Photos Cross: Vanderbilt's Bueler answers the call in relief Kroll: Texas makes the plays Louisville can't Photos Cross: How bullpens will help decide the CWS Corey Ray & Ro Coleman: Chicago's Finest Top Performers: Day 2 Kroll: Kirby, Papi lead Virginia to victory Photos Kroll: Morrison makes his pitch on CWS stage Photos Higgins: Ole Miss fans flock to Omaha Hill: TD Ameritrade Park the stage -- and a star Higgins: Texas enjoys off day at team barbeque Hill: Plenty of dads spending Father's Day at the CWS Vanderbilt's antics in the outfield Top Performers: Day 1 Kroll: Vandy pushes right buttons in opening win Photos Hill: Louisville fans thrilled to be back in Omaha Higgins: Stirring pre-game ceremony marks Flag Day Kroll: UC Irvine debunks myth in Game 1 win Photos Hill: Despite team's fortunes, LSU fans show up in Omaha CWS grounds crew is Omaha's unsung home team Freshman, senior share thoughts on opening ceremony Kroll: Five questions to get to know players and coaches Higgins: Quizzing the coaches on CWS history Hill: Players and coaches discuss favorite sports movies Photo Essay: CWS contenders take their cuts Photo Essay: Talented players dot CWS landscape Team Capsules | Opening Round Matchups | Draft Picks Highlights | Brackets: Interactive Print "I just love all of this," Babin said. "The three reasons I always come to Omaha are -- baseball, baseball and baseball -- I mean, is there any better reason?" Babin and Radcliffe host quite the tailgate. So much so, it has gotten the name Tiger Town, Nebraska. "We joke that if you do not have a Louisiana license plate, you cannot get into this tailgate," Radcliffe said. Tiger Town has attracted many other people tailgating at the College World Series. Omaha resident Kris R. and her husband met Babin and Radcliffe 10 years ago, and every year they still hang out in Tiger Town before the first pitch. "They have the best food," Kris said, "but it stretches beyond food. They have the best hospitality. And they come every year." Radcliffe is the chef of the group and he hauls all of the special ingredients and cooking equipment from Louisiana to Nebraska. "We trucked all of this food 1,000 miles," Radcliffe explained. "One hundred pounds of sausage, 100 pounds of shrimp and 60 pounds of crawfish. We put it all in the truck." Saturday's menu included étouffée -- a Cajun dish of rice smothered in crawfish. Babin and Radcliffe passed bowls of it along with French bread to every passerby; security guards, other fans and media. They encouraged people to stop and sit a spell before the games. "We like to bring Southern hospitality to the Midwest," Babin said. Like the relationship with Kris, Babin and Radcliffe have made many friends through the years. "We met all kinds of people at old Rosenblatt and we have just stayed friends with them," Radcliffe said. "We come to Omaha a few days early and spend time with our friends at their homes before the games start." Babin and Radcliffe may not be able to cheer for the Tigers while in Omaha, but they have a team in mind. "On the record, I am pulling for Ole Miss," Babin said. "We got to keep it in the SEC, and I think Ole Miss has the best shot."
