Florida State ace Brandon Leibrandt, the son of former Atlanta Braves pitcher Charlie Leibrandt who was dominant in the Seminoles’ Super Regionals win two weeks ago, did a 180 on Thursday in FSU’s elimination game against Arizona in the College World Series. Leibrandt’s first-inning error on a sure-fire double play led to a six-run Wildcats outburst. In fact, Leibrandt didn’t even make it out of the inning and was pulled shortly after the costly mistake as FSU lost, 10-3, ending its season.
