Coastal Carolina, a school with fewer than 10,000 students in Conway, South Carolina, won its first NCAA championship in any sport when it beat Arizona in Game 3 of the College World Series on Thursday afternoon.

The school is so new to the national baseball scene that it has just one former player among the about 800 players on active Major League Baseball rosters: rookie utility player Taylor Motter of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Motter was in the middle of warm-ups when the Rays put the end of the College World Series game on the videoboard in the outfield. The team captured this cool video of Motter watching the final strike and then ripping off his warm-up jacket to reveal a Coastal Carolina T-shirt.
