It had to end sometime.
The Cinderalla run of the Kent State University Golden Flashes men's baseball team ended with a 4-1 loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks this afternoon.
The loss came one day after rain postponed their game and just days after Kent State beat the No. 1 national team Florida in dramatic fashion.
Lori Wemhoff, director of the Kent Area Chamber of Commerce, said in an email this afternoon that fans of the team can welcome the players home to Kent tonight at 8 p.m.
Wemhoff said the team bus will arrive then at Dix Stadium on Summit Street.
"The support of the fans, campus and business community has been amazing throughout the CWS, and we know it will continue tonight at Dix Stadium," Wemhoff said.
