Sam Cohen only had 25 at bats for University of California Santa Barbara when he took to the plate in the bottom of the 9th, down 3-0 to the tourney faves, Louisville. It seems like he might be getting a few more at-bats in the near and distant future based on how that one went.

Cohen hit a grand slam that won UCSB the game and put them into the College World Series.

Oh, yeah. He did it against arguably the best closer in college ball, too.

Take a look:

Even if the moment doesn’t move you, you might enjoy watching the ump get absolutely trampled by the celebrating kids. That’s fun to watch, no?
