The Podcast About Division III Baseball

May 17, 2018

Welcome to Episode 23 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the seventh of our eight postseason regional preview podcasts -- this one focuses on the 8-team New York Regional which will take place in Auburn, NY. We break down each of the eight teams. (Almost) in order:

  • #1 Cortland (at 2:36)
    • The Red Dragons flopped in the SUNYAC tournament, but come on, it's Cortland -- they're gonna turn it on
  • #8 Westfield State (at 5:59)
    • The Owls have a DUDE in the lineup (Anthony Crowley) and a DUDE on the mound (John Gegetskas) -- is that enough to pull off the upset?
  • #3 Southern Maine (at 8:43)
    • The Huskies have had quite the hot and cold season, but the talent still looks ready to shine in a regional
  • #7 St. Joseph's (L.I.) (at 12:12)
    • The Skyline champs will look to prove themselves against a Salisbury team that will look very different than anyone else they've played this year
  • #2 Salisbury (at 14:50)
    • The Sea Gulls have a deep lineup and some extremely impressive frontline arms; but do they have enough pitching depth to run through an 8-team regional?
  • #6 Amherst (at 18:45)
    • The Mammoths will look to pull off a mammoth upset of sorts against the Huskies
  • #4 Baldwin Wallace (at 21:06)
    • No one finished hotter than the Yellow Jackets who scored a billion runs in the OAC tourney and looked unstoppable. Will the momentum carry over?
  • #5 Swarthmore (at 23:19)
    • A remarkable season for the Garnet earned them a #5 seed and a date with the Baldwin Wallace steamroller; can their magical season continue on through this challenging regional?

(Sorry for the weird order -- it was late and Jake got confused.)

We conclude with our top players and pitchers to watch, and our pick to punch their ticket to Appleton (at 24:40). Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
