Welcome to Episode 29 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. The 2019 season is upon us, which means it's about time we get back to podcasting. Before we dive into our first regional preview, we give our quick reactions (at 4:10) to the Preseason Top 25 poll and why you probably shouldn't care all that much about preseason polls. Then we begin our comprehensive look at the West region, starting with the ASC (at 8:20). We quickly discuss defending champion Texas-Tyler and their transition outta D-III, before deciding which of UT-Dallas and Concordia-Texas are the new favorites in the conference. We then move to the SCAC (at 19:05), home of the 2018 national runner-up Texas Lutheran Bulldogs. and one of the most talented teams in the country, the Trinity Tigers. Who has the edge? Next, we head out to the actual west part of the West region and discuss the favorites in the SCIAC (at 30:54). Will Redlands and Chapman duke it out for a title again, or will Cal Lutheran get back in the mix? AND WHAT ABOUT LA VERNE?! Finally, we head to the beautiful pacific northwest and preview the NWC (at 40:35), where the Willamette Bearcats look like a notch ahead of the rest of the pack but it could be wide open beyond them. Then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
