UCLA’s Rahmatulla out for College World Series

The No. 6 UCLA Bruins (48-14) are preparing to face the No. 3 Florida Gators (47-15) in the first round of the 2010 NCAA College World Series on Saturday, but the “away team” will have to do so without their starting second baseman.

Sophomore Tyler Rahmatulla – who is hitting .328 with seven home runs, 19 doubles and 45 RBI this season – broke his wrist…while celebrating the team’s game three win against Cal State Fullerton in the 2010 Los Angeles Super Regional.

Rahmatulla started all 61 games for UCLA this season and is a big loss for the Bruins going into the CWS. While dogpiles are a part of the game and certainly a great way to celebrate, perhaps players should be more careful after seeing what happened to the Kendry Morales of the Los Angeles Angles just a few weeks ago.

    Guess they didst learn much from the Anaheim Angels and their celebrations. Seems as though these California teams have issues with breaking things during celebrating
