The Podcast About Division III Baseball

Apr 20, 2018

Welcome to Episode 13 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. The first regional rankings are rapidly approaching and we've already got one automatic bid clinched, so we check in on some of the teams finding their stride at the right time as the postseason nears. Featured in this week's episode:

  • Top 25 deep dives:
    • #11 Shenandoah (at 2:26):
      • We thought they'd have some of the best starting pitching in D-III; instead, the pitching has been solid and the offense has been elite
    • #19 Salisbury (at 5:02):
      • We knew how talented this team was coming into the season; now they are really showing it and getting hot at the right time
      • Several All-American candidates in Jack Barry, Connor Reeves, and Austin Heenan
    • #22 Franklin (at 7:19):
      • This team boasts a loaded lineup and the best record in the country, but a poor SOS makes us concerned based on recent at-large precedents (in case they don't win the HCAC tournament, which they obviously could)
    • #23 Southern Maine (at 12:56):
      • One of our Appleton favorites heading into the season, the Huskies are finally starting to put some big wins together
  • Our first automatic bid winner, LaGrange (at 15:33): 
    • 1 team is in; only 57 to go!
    • How the Panthers defended their USA South title and who has performed during their impressive second half
    • Now they just have a month off...???
  • Shouting out some players at the top of the leaderboards -- early Player and Pitcher of the Year candidates (at 18:41)
  • Wooster update (at 21:53):
    • They probably have the best offense in the country (11+ runs per game, lol), but the pitching depth has been the most impressive part of the season so far
    • Strong chunk of their schedule coming up soon 
  • WashU Update (at 23:02):
    • With a top-notch SOS, what will it take for the Bears to sneak into the tournament?

Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
