Maryland head baseball coach has awesome message for team following season-ending loss
Maryland’s baseball season came to a disappointing end on Sunday night.
After defeating Charlotte 2-1 in an afternoon game on Sunday in the Greenville Regional, the Terrapins suffered their second loss of the NCAA Tournament, falling 9-6 to East Carolina. It marked the end of Maryland’s season, finishing with two wins and two losses in the tournament.
After the game, head coach Rob Vaughn had a strong message for his team. He couldn’t have been prouder of all that the Terrapins did on the field under the unique circumstances the 2021 season presented:
"We will dogpile, I promise. . . . I know it hurts, but, damn, you should be proud of yourselves, boys."

Maryland finished the season with a 30-18 record and ended the year with the second-best record in the B1G, behind only Nebraska. The Terrapins were 28-16 in the regular season while the Huskers went 31-12.
Vaughn’s team was also one of three B1G squads to reach the postseason, along with Nebraska and Michigan. The Terrapins had the second-longest run for the conference, as the Wolverines dropped their first two games and were eliminated on Saturday.
It was a great year on the diamond for Maryland and Vaughn doesn’t want his team to forget it.
