More than twenty thousand fans packed into TD Ameritrade Park for the first games of the College World Series.
One set of fans, a Chicago White Sox youth baseball league, who were cheering on two former players.
"I can't root for anyone that's the bad thing, I can't root for anyone. I have to kind of stay neutral because either way I have to be happy for either one," said Jeffery Massey, a second baseman with the league, called ACE.
The two former ACE players, Corey Ray of Louisville and Ro Coleman of Vanderbilt, faced off tonight leaving the ACE team split.
But for most fans, there was no question who they were rooting for. The lines were drawn in the crowd and on their clothes. Most fans say, people are still polite.
"It's all friendly it's all very, very friendly. We had some Texas fans take our photograph for us and they didn't steal my phone so it went well," said Dan O'Halloian, whose UC-Irvine team beat Texas in the opener.
