June 8, 1957 - June 12, 1957 • Rosenblatt Stadium, Omaha, Nebraska • Attendance: 26,609
Considered the best team to play in Omaha since the College World Series arrived in 1950, the 1957 California team dominated the CWS like no team had before, going 5-0 during the week to earn the national championship.
Nobody really came close.
California topped Northern Colorado 4-0 before defeating Iowa State 8-2. Penn State fell to the Bears 8-0 and Iowa State lost their rematch 9-1. The closest any team got to the Bears was Penn State in a 1-0 loss in the championship game.
The Bears earned the title in coach George Wolfman's third season with California.
Note: All-Tournament team selections were not handed out prior to the 1958 College World Series.
