The Podcast About Division III Baseball

May 17, 2018

Welcome to Episode 20 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the fourth of our eight postseason regional preview podcasts -- this one focuses on the 8-team New England Regional which will take place in Harwich, MA. We break down each of the eight teams. In order:

  • #1 UMass-Boston (at 1:44)
    • The Beacons have been rolling all season long; can anyone slow them down in Harwich?
  • #8 Penn State-Berks (at 4:05)
    • Toby Welk might be able to win the regional on his own (with a little help from Tyler Comport)
  • #2 Oswego State (at 7:17)
    • Fresh off an incredible run to a SUNYAC title, the Lakers are ready to live up to their #2 seed label in a strong regional
  • #7 Suffolk (at 9:09)
    • The Rams had no trouble winning the GNAC, but their non-conference schedule is really what prepared them for stronger regional competition
  • #3 Keystone (at 10:58)
    • This Giants team seemingly has more impact talent than recent Keystone contenders; can they make it back to Appleton?
  • #6 Mitchell (at 12:50)
    • Another strong campaign in the NECC for the Mariners, but have they got what it takes against stronger competition?
  • #4 Western New England (at 14:38)
    • The Golden Bears take more walks than almost any other team in the nation; can they OBP their way to Appleton?
  • #5 Ramapo (at 16:50)
    • A strong year in the NJAC should prepare the Roadrunners for a deep regional run

We conclude with our top players and pitchers to watch, and our pick to punch their ticket to Appleton (at 18:43). Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
