OMAHA, NE (WVIR) -
A busy day for the UVa baseball team started outside TD Ameritrade Ballpark Friday afternoon.

The team posed for pictures in front of the famous 'Road to Omaha' sculpture.

The 1,500 pound bronze sculpture depicts four players celebrating victory at home plate.

One of those players was sculpted in the likeness of UVa coach Brian O'Connor.

O'Connor is kind of a local celebrity.

He's from the Omaha area, and was a pitcher on Creighton's 1991 team that played in the College World Series.

Virginia will open CWS play against Mississippi Sunday at 8pm.
