When the NCAA bracket came for the college baseball tournament and a little-known school from New York had made it in, hardly anyone took notice.
That little-known school, however, would prove to be one of the nation's darlings in college baseball.
After winning tough regionals in Coral Gables and super regionals in Baton Rouge, Stony Brook was going to Omaha, the pinnacle of college baseball.
The city and the nation embraced them, with everyone seemingly jumping on the Stony Brook bandwagon.
The CWS would not be kind to Seawolves as they lost two consecutive games to UCLA and Florida State, knocking them out of the tournament and subsequently ending the Cinderella story that was Stony Brook.
