Any updates on potential sites for the 2019 D3 Series? I'd love to see it in the Twin Cities on the turf at Seibert Field.

I doubt we will know anything time soon.

This was the original request for bids document for 2018-19 to 2021-22. The D-III baseball championship is included in this. The original timeline indicated an announcement would be made in December 2016, but clearly that didn't happen. I suspect the entire process was delayed due to the ramifications of the NCAA pulling a number of championships from North Carolina. I imagine we will find out by the end of March. As you can see in this document, bidding for a championship is quite a process...

I'd love to see it hosted by Hamline (or St. Thomas... or even the MIAC) at Seibert Field (Home of U of MN).

Can't see that happening (U of M practices at Siebert, don't they?), but Hamline is the 2nd tenant at CHS.

Do you know where there would be a master list of games at US Bank Stadium?

Here's the full list of U.S. Bank Stadium baseball games, minus the Gophers. Minnesota is playing all of their non-conference home games there.

If US Bank stadium were to get the D3 Championships, I can imagine an incredible number of teams, all throughout the spring, who might come in the non-conference to play a few games at the site, to acclimate to "indoor" ball. That might set up "dream matches" somewhere other than Florida.
