Champions revisited: Memorable moments

Mike Wentworth’s postseason home runs created much of the storybook quality of WSU’s run. He hit a crucial two-run homer against Fresno State in the regional on his mother’s birthday. He hit his second homer of the season in an elimination victory over Florida State on his father’s birthday, tying the game 4-all and sending WSU to the title game with a 12-9 win. Before the win over the Seminoles, he unwrapped a piece of Bazooka gum and kept the wrapper reading “Something magical will happen to you today,” in his uniform pocket.
