Champaign Centennial baseball product gets national attention for cursing at batter in College World Series

Luke Smith, a pitcher for the University of Louisville, had some words for a batter from Vanderbilt during the NCAA’s College World Series this weekend. It’s hard to make out, but if you squint super hard you should be able to tell what he’s saying (/s).

Smith was a graduate of Centennial High School, and played on Parkland College’s baseball team before transferring to Louisville. He is also a confirmed hardass.

Karma is very real. Vanderbilt came back to hand Louisville a 3-2 defeat in the next inning. y i k e s.
