The Podcast About Division III Baseball

May 17, 2018

Welcome to Episode 22 (ignore the fact that we said 25) of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the sixth of our eight postseason regional preview podcasts -- this one focuses on the 8-team Mideast Regional which will take place in Adrian, MI. We break down each of the eight teams. In order:

  • #1 Wooster (at 2:20)
    • The Fighting Scots are as balanced as they've been in years, and look eager to show why they're the #1 seed in arguably the strongest regional in the country
  • #8 Wabash (at 6:17)
    • The Little Giants aim to knock off their NCAC rival for a third time in a row, and continue their magical run in Adrian
  • #2 Otterbein (at 8:12)
    • A disappointing showing at home in the OAC tournament should not distract from the fact that this team is really good
  • #7 Adrian (at 10:14)
    • #7 seed on their own turf? Good chance the Bulldogs will take that personally, and Tommy Parsons is ready to show everyone why he's the best pitcher in the country.
  • #3 La Roche (at 13:30)
    • The Redhawks are more pitching-oriented than in recent years, but the offense ain't too shabby either
  • #6 Ithaca (at 15:34)
    • Shipped in from New York, the Bombers are fresh off an impressive Empire 8 title run, and they've got the Little twins to prove it
  • #4 Marietta (at 17:53)
    • The Pioneers' insane schedule should prepare them for what will be an insane regional
  • #5 Shenandoah (at 19:46)
    • No one believed in the Hornets all year long and then they just went and won the ODAC in a blink. How far can this team go?

We conclude with our top players and pitchers to watch, and our pick to punch their ticket to Appleton (at 22:38). Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
