Most of the baseball players at Kirkwood Community College can only dream about playing in the College World Series in Omaha and winning an NCAA title.
Greg Brodzinski has already done it.
Brodzinski was a freshman catcher at South Carolina in 2011 when the Gamecocks won the NCAA Division I title with a 5-2 victory over Florida before 26,721 fans at TD Ameritrade Park.
Brodzinski was in the bullpen when South Carolina got the final out. He raced onto the field and joined the dogpile.
"I'll never forget that," he said Friday. "It's like in the movies."
Brodzinski anticipated becoming one of Carolina's top catchers in 2012, but a fifth-year senior was granted a special sixth year of eligibility for 2012 and Brodzinski decided to transfer to Coastal Carolina rather than being a reserve with the Gamecocks again.
