There is much more at stake than the world championship in this year's all-California World Series. We're not talking about statewide bragging rights, the first World Series victory for either city, or the mystique of the Rally Monkey.
The president representing the losing team must wear the cap of the victorious campus during the first business day following the final game.
For example, if the series runs all seven games and ends Sunday and the Giants win, Gordon must wear an SFSU Gators baseball cap on Monday.
If the Angels win, Corrigan must wear a CSU Fullerton Titans baseball cap.
"If the Angels dare to pitch to Barry, President Gordon definitely will be wearing a Gators hat. Go Giants!" Corrigan said.
"Cal State Fullerton is the home of many Angels fans, including me," Gordon said. "In fact, several of our communications graduates now working for the Angels created the now-famous Rally Monkey.
"The Angels play at Edison Field, which is just down the freeway from our campus. I'm sure there are a lot of loyal Giants fans at San Francisco State, which is just a few miles from where the Giants play at Pac Bell Park," Gordon added. "Because of this and because both of our universities have a long tradition of baseball excellence in their respective divisions, including three College World Series wins for the Cal State Fullerton Titans, Bob and I have made this friendly wager."
CSU Fullerton, located in Orange County, is about 6 miles from Edison International Field.
SFSU, located in the southwestern corner of San Francisco, is less than 8 miles from Pacific Bell Park.
