Welcome to Episode 3 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the second of our eight regional preview podcasts -- this one focuses on the South region. We run through the best teams in the four South conferences -- the USA South, the SAA, the ODAC, and the CAC -- before giving some love to the UAA southern representative as well.
We begin (at 1:43) with the USA South and the reigning conference champs, the LaGrange Panthers, and whether they can remain on top after losing much of their pitching staff and a few big bats. Next (at 5:10), we discuss the SAA and the perennial power known as the Birmingham-Southern...Panthers...and why we think these are the Panthers that could truly contend come regional time. We then move (at 10:14) to the all-powerful ODAC, which features perhaps the two strongest teams in the region in Shenandoah and Randolph-Macon, as well as one of the stories of the 2017 season in Roanoke. We then turn to the CAC (at 18:34) and discuss how good Salisbury could be even after losing Player of the Year Pete Grasso. Finally (at 22:18), we discuss the Emory Eagles, and how they stack up in a UAA conference that lost a lot of talent to graduation.
We conclude (at 28:00) by running through some other notable players to watch down South, before giving our official TEAMS TO BEAT and our Player and Pitcher of the Year contenders
