The Podcast About Division III Baseball

May 17, 2018

Welcome to Episode 19 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the third of our eight postseason regional preview podcasts -- this one focuses on the 6-team West Regional which will take place in Spokane, WA. We break down each of the six teams. In order:

  • #1 Chapman (at 1:44)
    • After an enormous statement in the SCIAC championship game, can the Panthers live up to the #1 seed and make it to Appleton?
  • #6 Willamette (at 4:12)
    • The Bearcats have had a lot of time off since winning the NWC title; how far can Connor Bailey and Matt Steindorf take them?
  • #2 Redlands (at 6:14)
    • Perhaps the most balanced all-around team in the West, the Bulldogs will look to avenge their disappointing conference tournament with a strong regional showing
  • #5 Texas-Dallas (at 9:20)
    • The Comets got hot at the right time, and are ready to try and outscore any and all opponents
  • #3 Concordia-Texas (at 11:42)
    • The numbers don't jump off the page, but there are many reasons to fear the Tornados in a regional setting
  • #4 Texas Lutheran (at 15:14)
    • The Bulldogs have felt like a team of destiny all year long; Riley Schaefer/Tyler Cauley + Dylan Drgac/Nathan Malinovsky = goooooooood baseball team. 

We conclude with our top players and pitchers to watch, and our pick to punch their ticket to Appleton (at 19:40). Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
