2013 Nashville Regional: East Tennessee State Primer

Obviously we know all there is to know about East Tennessee State already, but just in case there are one or two of you out there that are unfamiliar.

One of the nice things about college baseball is that it's like basketball in that even the little guys gets a chance to put on Cinderella's shoes once in a while. And if there's going to be a Cinderella in the Nashville Regional it's obviously East Tennessee State.

While Vandy, Georgia Tech and Illinois all come from major conferences, East Tennessee State calls the Atlantic Sun home. How did the Bucs get to the championship? The old fashioned way: by winning the Atlantic Sun Tournament.

Also, ETSU is not the only Atlantic Sun team to make the tournament, as Mercer is in the Starkville Regional.
