Editor's note: this year marked an incredible season for the Kent State Golden Flashes men's baseball team, which made the university's first-ever appearance in the College World Series.
Baseball fans from Kent and beyond cheered the team on as they made the historic run.
The run ended when Kent State lost to the South Carolina Gamecocks, but not before beating the No. 1 national team Florida in dramatic fashion.
For 2012, this story is one of my picks for top 10 stories of the year.
