Welcome to Episode 24 of The Podcast About Division III
Baseball. This is the eighth of our eight postseason regional
preview podcasts -- this one focuses on the 8-team Mid-Atlantic
Regional which will take place in York, PA. We break down each of
the eight teams. In order:

goodbye. Thanks for listening!
