Regional brings celebration and validation to West Virginia baseball

GRANVILLE, W.Va. – For a good portion of West Virginia’s Sunday night flight home from Oklahoma City, Randy Mazey was in misery.

There was no WiFi on the charter plane, and therefore no way to know whether West Virginia was one of the 16 teams chosen to host an NCAA baseball regional in the coming weekend. Mazey and associate athletic director Matt Wells figured they would be clever and see if one of the pilots could get that information from someone on the ground.

As it turns out, the game of Telephone is played the same way at 20,000 feet as it was in third grade.
