I sure hope I don't have to hear all the hype , all year long about how great this conference is and then be dissapointed at the regional tournament again. I was disgusted to see those MIGHTY teams from the CAC get clobbered. Spread some of those misguided votes a little farther south!

UMW's Lee Rubin Signs Professional Contract with Can Am League's Brockton Rox
 
FREDERICKSBURG, VA - Recent University of Mary Washington graduate Lee Rubin (West Orange, NJ/West Orange) has signed a contract to play professional baseball for the Brockton Rox, an independent league team in the Can Am League, as was announced on Wednesday. Rubin, a four-year starter at UMW, will begin his first season in the professional ranks when the Can Am League opens play in May.
The eleventh player in UMW's 20-year history to play professionally, Rubin closed his career with the Eagles last May holding UMW single game records for hits (6), RBI (8), and total bases (12). His four-year totals with the Eagles include a .368 batting average, with 10 home runs and 101 RBI. Last season with the Eagles, he missed several weeks after being hit in the head with a pitch, but still batted .384 with five home runs and 29 RBI in 99 at bats.
"It's a lifelong dream to play professional baseball", said Rubin on Wednesday. "It's rewarding to work extremely hard towards a goal and see it work out."
Rubin, who played last summer in the prestigious Jayhawk Summer College Baseball League in Joplin, MO, joins Eagle teammate and classmate Kevin Foeman in the professional ranks. Foeman signed with the San Francisco Giants last June and played in the Arizona League.

Five-run 9th inning lifts SU over Va. Wesleyan
SALISBURY, Md. - The No. 26 Salisbury University baseball team scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to rally past visiting Virginia Wesleyan College to win a thrilling 9-8 game on Tuesday afternoon at Sea Gull Field.

Salisbury (13-1) hit two home runs in the ninth to tie the game at eight runs apiece. Junior left fielder Randy Boyle stepped to the plate with two outs and a runner on third base. He then smacked a shot off the right field fence to plate shortstop Brian Camper as the Sea Gulls mobbed Camper at home plate to celebrate the come-from-behind victory. The Sea Gulls trailed by as much as six, down 7-1 in the seventh inning, but rallied to score eight runs in the final two innings. SU extends its winning streak to 13 consecutive games.

Senior Andrew Jensen led off the ninth inning with an inside-the-park home run. Four batters later senior catcher Pete Callahan blasted a three-run home run to right-center field to tie the game at 8-8. Designated hitter Justin Armiger reached on an error and Camper followed with a fielder's choice that forced Armiger out at second base. Senior Colin Kraus reached on an infield hit to send Camper to third and set the table for Boyle.

The Sea Gulls exact revenge on the Marlins, the only team that has beaten SU this season. Salisbury lost its first game of the season 4-0 on the road.

VWC (9-7) controlled the game for the first seven innings. The Marlins manufactured a run in the first inning and received assistants from the Sea Gulls in the fourth and sixth innings. SU committed two errors in the fourth that led to two VWC runs. Boyle dropped the ball in left field which allowed three runs to score in the sixth.

SU got on the board in the bottom of the sixth when Jensen hit a lead-off triple. The senior right fielder extended his hitting streak to 14 games as he went 3-for-4 from the plate. Jensen was a double short of a cycle. Senior third baseman Alex Vitale then brought Jensen home on a sacrifice fly. The Sea Gulls tacked on another run in the seventh before Armiger clubbed a two-run homer in the eighth to cut the Marlin lead to three, 7-4.

Virginia Wesleyan catcher Matt Hudgins homered off SU reliever Eric Willey (2-0) in the top of the ninth inning. Hudgins' third home run of the season made it 8-4 in the Marlinsí favor going into the bottom of the ninth inning.

Salisbury left-handed starter Bryan Brainer allowed six runs (one earned) in less then six innings pitched where he struck out seven. VWC starting pitcher Jesse Freeman hurled five scoreless innings, allowed six hits, two walks and struck out four batters.

The Sea Gulls will travel to Washington, D.C., tomorrow (March 14) to face Capital Athletic Conference foe Catholic University at 3 p.m. The two schools met last Saturday when SU won 12-2 at home.

Post by: BisonBaseball on October 26, 2007, 12:12:19 pm
So what is everyone's Pre-Season Rankings for the CAC ?

New teams and new format...

what does everyone think ???

Will York repeat ? Will Gallaudet end the 10 year losing streak ?
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: VJC Baseball on November 04, 2007, 12:19:11 am
There is nothing official, but I would think preseason would come up something like this:

Salisbury
York
Mary Washington
Villa Julie
Wesley
St. Mary's
Gallaudet

Gallaudet just changed coaches, Salisbury lost starters at CF Kraus, RF Jenson, 3B Vitale, C Peterson, 2 starting pitchers Brainer, Oleynick, I also heard that  P Cambell transfered, and DH/2B Wessels transfered , but I'm sure they will reload, York lost their #1 on the mound Brower, Young at SS, Bednarzcyk at 3B. UMW lost Sr SS Fitzgerald, P Diamond, 3B Anderson, P Wilkens. Villa Julie lost P #3 Pitcher Sanders, and OF Moran (academics), Wesley, St. Mary's and Gallaudet I'm not as familiar with

Post by: BisonBaseball on November 05, 2007, 04:18:55 pm
So now that there are 7 teams in the conference I heard that it was going to a triple round robin, is that true ? Or just 12 games ?

How many teams are needed to get an automatic bid ?

Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: VJC Baseball on November 07, 2007, 10:18:13 pm
I do not know who the new coach is at Gallaudet, I got a phone call from the AD about scheduling and he informed me that their current coach is no longer there?

As for the 3 game sets, that is true...we will play 1 game on Wed, and 2 on Saturday (7,9)...that gives us 18 conference games, then the tournament which is double elimination...not entirely sure what we are doing with the 7 seed yet...either play in or 6 teams make it, I'm honestly not sure!
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: BisonBaseball on December 07, 2007, 11:35:04 am
I wanted to introduce myself as the new coach at Gallaudet. My name is Matt Lisle. I have been coaching in California for the last 7 years at both the collegiate and high school level. I'm looking forward to the season starting.

I've really enjoyed learning about D3 Baseball from this site and its members.

More to come later....

Post by: BisonBaseball on December 07, 2007, 03:32:12 pm
Thanks for the reply.

There is quite a long to do list I have to tackle, but one thing all coaches can help me with is identifying players.

We have such a small pool of players to pull from being that 99% of our students are deaf and hard of hearing. Any coaches that know of HS or JC players that are deaf or hard of hearing, outside of the Deaf High Schools please let me know.

I definitely am looking forward to turning around the program and I honestly believe it can be done.

I heard the Salisbury just picked up transfer Jordan Crystal from Frostburg State. Hes a hard throwing lefty who strikes otu a lot of batters and threw 70 innings for Frostburg. He also was their leading hitter in 05 batting .383 and was the 10th toughest hitter to strike out in d3. He is comign off injury, but I hear his recovery is in full and he is chomping to get back in. Hes a big threat for the rest of the CAC

Mary Washington, Salisbury And York Ready To Battle Again For CAC Baseball Crown
Mary Washington, Salisbury and York battled back and forth throughout the 2007 baseball season, and a similar battle could emerge during the 2008 Capital Athletic Conference campaign.
The Eagles (26-12-1) and Spartans (32-14) shared top honors during the regular season, each with 8-2 records, while Salisbury was fourth in the six-team conference with a 5-5 mark. York gained the top seed in the 2007 CAC playoffs, but was knocked out of the tournament in the semifinals by Mary Washington.
Salisbury (33-10), meanwhile, cruised through the winner's bracket of the conference tournament and topped UMW in the championship game for the Sea Gulls' second-straight playoff title and sixth in the last eight years.
SU and YCP went on to compete in the NCAA Division III regional tournament at Ferrum, Va., with the Spartans advancing to the Regional Championship Game.
The 2008 baseball season, which begins this weekend when Salisbury plays at Va. Wesleyan (2/9) and St. Mary's visits Hampden-Sydney (2/10), features two new team in the CAC baseball rotation -- Villa Julie and Wesley. Additionally, the coaches approved an expanded 18-game conference schedule (compared to 10 games in 2007) to include three games against each CAC opponent -- a single mid-week game at one site, then a Saturday twinbill at the other location.
Here is a brief look at each team heading into the 2008 CAC title chase:
Gallaudet outfielder Kevin Alley was one of just three freshman in the CAC to earn a berth on the 2007 all-star squad and figures to be a linchpin for the 2008 Bison. GU will be looking to improve on a 6-26 overall record under first-year coach Matt Lisle.
Mary Washington welcomes back the majority of its pitching staff following last year's 26-12 team that gained victories against eight NCAA Tournament-bound teams. All-CAC and all-region selection Chase Townsend heads a group that will need to contend with the loss of All-CAC picks Eric Fitzgerald, Brett Diamond, and Chris Anderson. Townsend leads a group of returning moundsmen that includes Wes Hayden and Seth Kaas.
Salisbury, the defending CAC champ and NCAA Tournament rep, boasted eight conference all-stars in 2007, half of which return for the 2008 campaign. Senior Ryan Benick was one of three SU hurlers to earn CAC post-season recognition last year and is expected to be the leader of 2007 CAC Coach of the Year Doug Fleetwood's pitching staff this season. Other returning first-team all-stars include senior third baseman Justin Armiger, sophomore first baseman Mike Celenza and second-team senior outfielder Mark Bostwick.

Don't sleep on York.  After losing their first two games (Greensboro and Emory) they have rattled off 13 straight wins, including Salisbury, Messiah, Piedmont and Elizabethtown.

get a clue quaker. salisbury plays plenty of tough teams such as cortland, york, mary washington, va wesleyan, nc wesleyan, to name a few. im looking at guilford's schedule and see you guys losing to southern virginia, case western reserve, haverford, etc. dont worry, when it is all said and done, salisbury will be in good shape while your oxymoron quakers are sitting on their thumbs.

York is n longer riding under the radar to surprise anyone.  At 16-2 and 7-0 in conference (same conference as #2 Salisbury), they can longer be underated.  Ranked #21 at this week's DIII rankings, they continue to get great pitching from freshman K.C. Beshore (3-0, 1.80 ERA), and junior Jason Christenberry (4-0, 2.67 ERA) along with sophmore Kyle Cook (2-1, 1.69 ERA, 4 SAVES).

They have won 16 in a row with quality wins over Piedmont, #2 Salisbury, with two more to play vs #2 Salisbury on March 29th.

Salisbury defeats York 30-6 in the first game of the doubleheader. That is not a typo either, the final score was 30-6.

Okay so heres the deal why this is a problem. York's head coach left the third pitcher in to give up 18 runs in 2 innings. Not only is this a serious problem with me but the kid that was left out to dry was a freshman. He gave up 15 hits and two walks as well in those 2 innings. I were to guess, the kid may have thrown over 100 pitches in the in his outing.

His statistics are ruined for the entire season. Most likely, the kid is going to be shaken for not only this season but for years to come. His chances of getting into a quality summer league have dwindled. I dont care if he has run out of pitching, bring someone else in.

I completely agree with you here.  Somebody in that situation would have to bite the bullet in the first game of a conf. series.  But 18 runs is ridiculous. The only good that happens there is you know for sure the kid is a team player. One he might lose after the season.

Post by: baseballdad on March 30, 2009, 08:00:46 am
That was defineitly a bad decesion by the coach.  That kid will be tarnished for a long time because of that outing.  Game being out of hand bring anyone into throw and not let a kid go through that pounding.

I do believe Salisbury was on a mission this weekend to avenge two losses to St.Marys and York.  Pitching was great on Sat and the bats exploded on Sunday.

Although Salisbury (21-4, CAC 9-3) is currently one game behind Stevenson (12-12, CAC 8-2) in conference, they have not played each other.  I do not believe Stevenson with their .272 team batting average can keep up with the Sea Gulls offense.  Seniors Max Eckert and Ryan Baione are only bats in lineup that scare anyone.
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: baseballdad on March 31, 2009, 08:10:48 am
I have not seen Stevenson play but I think overall Salisbury's pitching and hitting are to deep for Stevenson to overcome in a three game series.  Should be a good series when they meet.

Post by: LTBB1971 on April 14, 2009, 05:26:00 pm
I think Salisbury is only team that that if does not win the CAC tournament will get an at large bid to Regionals.  York at 23-7 does have a good shot as well, but Wesley College at 22-12-1 will for sure need to win the tournament to get win.  I like their hitting and the pitching with Faulkner, Keckler, Doran and Warner has been solid all year.  What hinders them is losses to Wilkes, Eastern, Albright and Neumann.

This year is going to be very telling for the direction of the CAC before CNU arrives. Wesley still has a very good team and St. Mary's has decided they want to compete too. Who knows if York can rebound this year. This conference is going to come down to the wire. Looking forward to more great games with CNU coming in.

Post by: NoVa Baseball on March 09, 2012, 01:14:59 pm
As the login name implies, I am from NoVA and would have been quite happy to see CNU playing CAC teams over the past 4 years versus that drive down to Fayetteville.  Still, I wouldn't have traded the experience for anything.  That being said, I think this is a great move for CNU and the conference.  The Captains will be playing MW (they are only 2 VA D3 Public Schools), they will be playing schools of comparable size, and (the part I would have like the most), they will be making shorter road trips.  I suppose the schedule will be more exposed to the weather than it is now - does it ever warm up at Frostburg? But the prospect of more games with Salisbury is very enticing.  I can see Salisbury taking the place of Shenandoah as CNU's arch rival.  Given the noise that the Gulls fans produce (I think they schedule the lacrosse practice to end just in time for them to come harass CNU) and the turnout when they play at CNU, this could be a very good rivalry.  Don't see much of a downside to the move from my perspective.

Wayne Riser Named Baseball Coach At Mary Washington


The University of Mary Washington has hired Wayne Riser as its new Head Baseball Coach, according to Director of Athletics Ken Tyler. Riser comes to Fredericksburg from Shepherd University, where he served as head coach for 22 years, winning 512 games and ranking as the all-time winningest coach in any sport in Ramsí history. He was inducted as a 2008 member of the Shepherd Athletic Hall of Fame.

Riser replaces 25-year veteran coach Tom Sheridan, who left UMW last month to become the associate head coach at Division I George Washington University.

In his tenure at Shepherd, Riser guided 15 teams to winning seasons, including three 30-win campaigns in the past seven years. His 2012 team won 33 games en route to an NCAA Division II Regional Tournament appearance. Riserís first baseman, Nathan Minnich, was named as the Division II National Player of the Year, and was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the eighth round.

In all, Riser led five teams to NCAA Tournament play, and saw 16 teams win 20 or more games. His teams won numerous WVIAC Northern Division titles, and he was recognized as WVIAC Coach of the Year four times.

Under Riser's guidance, the Rams became a force on the national scene as their 39-7 record in 1997 brought with it the highest NCAA II ranking in school history plus the first-ever trip to the NCAA North Atlantic Regionals. Shepherd's banner year earned Riser WVIAC Coach of the Year and Mid Atlantic Major League Scouts Association College Coach of the Year honors.

In his 22 seasons at Shepherd, Riser coached 45 First Team All-WVIAC and 32 All-Region selections. He has also coached nine All-Americans, six Regional Players of the Year, three Academic All-Americans, a Regional Pitcher of the Year and a Tino Martinez Player of the Year winner. Numerous players have gone on to play professionally.

Riser, who also served as facilities coordinator for the Butcher Athletic Center at Shepherd, served for two years as an assistant coach for the Rams after playing two seasons in the Blue and Gold. A reserve outfielder and part-time pitcher, Riser posted a 2-0 record on the mound for the Rams after transferring from Henderson State University (AR).

After serving as a member of the NCAA Division II Baseball Committee and chair of the North Atlantic Regional Committee for two years, Riser recently completed a stint as chair of the NCAA Division II Baseball Committee. Riser graduated from Shepherd in 1989 with a bachelor of arts degree in secondary education. He earned his master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Shepherd in December 2007.

My thinking was that it shows guts to give up 18 runs in the first inning and then string together some zeros. Curious whether another college pitcher has ever given up 18 in the first and went on to pitch a complete game. Both institutions had the starter going the distance in their box scores.

Well the 2014 Capital Athletic Schedule got off to an early start yesterday.  St. Mary's spoiled the debut for CNU as they beat the Captains at CNU.  If CNU is not going to beat the lower tier of the Capital at home it will be a long season.

Rollin - Very true about not winning the games you should. Seeing that both of us have been on the USAS board and I have been following the USASouth for a long time I see this as a growing year for CNU. I do not think they are prepared at this point to really be a top 20 team. I think they will find their personnel loses from last year will hit them harder than they think and if their offense doesn't get on track very long season is ahead of them.
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: rolln2 on February 12, 2014, 09:06:34 am
Boysofsummer21, CNU is not in a rebuilding year offensively. They only lost their 1st baseman from last years lineup. All of their returners all had 100 or more at bats last season. Now the pitching may see some changes as they lost a very good back end of the bullpen. So long story/short. I don't think CNU can claim a rebuilding year in 2014.
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: PNeal7 on February 12, 2014, 11:50:30 am
I agree with Rolln2 in that CNU is not in a re-building year by any means. They return practically their entire offense, and even had a transfer in from Division 1 George Mason (who hit .271 w/ 3 HR, 18 RBI, and 10 2B's in 180 AB's for GMU last year) and a transfer who attended the Univ. of Maryland out of high school (and got 80+ AB's as a FR). Combine that with the returners of Weaver, Steel, Grissom, etc. and they should have a very potent offense.

Pitching wise, only time will tell. The loss of Chrisman clearly hurts, and SO LHP Brandon Taylor is out for the year with a labrum injury. They also lost their recording setting closer, as well as two top relievers in Lindsay and Verdillo. Bryan Bierlein anchors the staff and is a very good pitcher, and the return reliever Adam Emerson (who threw the ball amazing for us this past summer in the VBL). Austin Kilbourne (the transfer who originally want to UofM) is also a high quality arm with a lot of room to develop. Outside of that, the majority of the staff is unproven and will need to step it up. Guys such as Vaughn, Mays, and Boze will need to play/fill big roles.

If CNU's offense can put up high run totals to allow their pitching to gain experience and 'catch up', CNU could be poised to make a run at the CAC and the South Region. It's always tough to judge a team based on these early season games due to the weather, etc. Metal bats in 30-40 degree temperatures is never fun.

Post by: Boysofsummer21 on February 12, 2014, 01:08:00 pm
Both very true observations and maybe mine was overstated or miss stated, I am just saying they need to get the O rolling or it is a very long year. They are returning all but 1 in a offense that was not very good last year and so far they have been cold. It is very early and I know they will probably getting it going just hope t is sooner than later.

Looks like CNU is starting to come around offensively, but what is going on w/ what has traditionally been a very good pitching staff year in and year out.  The Captains are now 1-4 against what so far has been a very average schedule to start the season.
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: Boysofsummer21 on February 20, 2014, 03:32:24 pm
I was at Methodist this last weekend and think I know a little into that. I had not heard that Taylor was out till you guys told me but while there also heard that now Emerson is out. So they for this year they have lost 2/3 of their starting rotation and all of their bullpen. It hurts them up front but what is really hurting them is they have no one to hand the ball to when the game is on the line. CNU has been very lucky/good/recruiting studs in the closer department for many years now but all the sudden they have nothing there. This is biting them in the close games. They have good arms when you watch them just not the type you have gotten use to seeing. They got Vaughn back and he does not look bad so that will help but they need to develop some of the talent they have into a bullpen. Their offense is pretty much the same as last year, not built to score a lot of runs so their pitching needs to keep them in the game or it will not matter. Their current ERA of 6.02 just isn't getting it done especially when you have only score 6+ runs twice (and lost both) so a little growth and some hard work they should steadily get better. But I fear .500 is going to be a good record for them this year.
Title: Re: BB: CAC: Capital Athletic Conference
Post by: PNeal7 on February 21, 2014, 07:36:06 am
Boysofsummer21 head the nail on the head. Losing Taylor was a huge blow, and now with Emerson injured as well, you lose 2 of your top 3 arms. I'm not sure what the extent of Emerson's injury is and/or how long he will be out, but that leaves CNU with a slew of unproved arms. Like Boysofsummer21 said, everyone has gotten used to seeing top notch arms on the hill for the Captains, guys that would compete for the Conference Pitcher of the Year every year (Moreland, Brinkman, Chrismon, etc.). Even more important is the loss of their bullpen. For the past few years, a CNU starter only needed to go 6 IP and then the ball would be handed to Lindsey, Verdillo, and Fleischman. With Emerson being forced to a starter role when Taylor went down, they lost the guy you feel comfortable handing the ball too in a 1 Run game in the 9th.

I have confidence in Coach Harvell and his staff that they will be fine. I still expect them to compete for the CAC crown, although Salisbury is a very, very good squad.

Looks like the Captains have gotten themselves going as they won their 3rd straight yesterday vs VWC. On the flip side is against competition whose combined record is 3-9. So let's wait and see how they fair this week against teams with better records in HSC, Cortland St., and a Montclair St., team that I am not sure about.

CAC continues to bog down Salisbury. They blow teams out of the water and pitching is never really challenged/forced to succeed and they stumble in the grind of a regional. They aren't the only ones out there. Hopefully CNU can pose a challenge because I don't think Mary Wash, York or Wesley can contend like they used to and the bottom is just not even on the same level...

As all-region player and CAC Player of the Year Tom LaBriola departed the starting lineup and became an assistant coach this season, Salisbury University Baseball had a key void behind home plate. Sophomore Matt Padeway battled his way into the starting spot and has excelled on the field and at the plate.

Let's see what happens now. The remaining schedule gets tougher, starting this weekend with Salisbury coming in with a 19-4-1 record and a 13 game win streak.

In the first 23 games CNU opponents currently have a winning % of 45%. Of course CNU has a big part of that low %.

The remaining 13 games....nobody has a losing record. And are winning 68.5% of their games. 7 of those games are on the road. A good test heading into the post season!

Not that anybody reads these boards...but just in case. The preview for this weekend's games states that the combined CNU/Misericordia runs per game is 16. Then it states if Micsiracordia can score like they can, it could be tough. But wait...CNU leads the nation in scoring at 12.1 runs per game. That leaves 3.9 per game for the other guys. Not a powerhouse!

But....I checked NCAA stats....d3baseball.com is incorrect. Mis scores 7.8 per game. So that would be a combined 19.9
