world series is a place where people from across the country to meet to celebrate the love of baseball... a couple from starkville has been making the trip for several years. wtva's evan hensley joins us live from omaha with how one of them grew to love the game in a unique way... when i asked bulldogs fans if they were nervous with the high chance of rain tonight... they said no... they told me that a massive storm would have to come to keep them from rooting on their bulldogs here at t.d. ameritrade park... steve cee - starkville "she knew nothing about baseball before i took her to her first state game and she was getting so tense, so wrapped up with emotion, trying to keep up with what was going on in the game." mary cee - starkville "several years ago i saw a lady across the way in the old dude scoring so i went over and she showed me how to score. she said don't worry everybody's scoring language is different. so i read a couple of books, i read up and started scoring." one of the reason she picked it up... to stop yelling at the umpires so much... it gave her a more relaxing way to follow what was happening... and boosted her knowledge of the game... "i keep up with pitch count so sometimes the guy and girls around me and they will ask the pitch count. then we will all discuss and talk about if this pitcher can go another inning or two." mary also likes to challenge herself by trying new things each season... for the 2019 season she has been keeping up with errors... and mary told me that one of the bigger challenges she faces was in that crazy 9th inning from sunday night... shes actually still working on it... reporting live in omaha at the college world series, eh wtva 9 news it appears the lee
