The 2012 college baseball season definitely had its ups and downs. There was the thrill of first-timers Kent State and Stony Brook reaching the College World Series, with Arizona capturing the ultimate prize. There was sadness in the passing of Harvard head coach Joe Walsh (right) in July and of VCU skipper Paul Keyes in November.
