Historical/statistical archive / Triple Plays
« on: May 12, 2014, 09:50:11 pm »
There were 6 triple plays in D-3 this season.

One poster on another board wondered if one player has ever hit for the infamous "Cycle", i.e., a triple play, a double play, a single out. One might add a strikeout to make it a "quadricycle".  Two players hit for the "tri-cycle".  I don't know what other name we can give it, but please make suggestions.

In the first game of the DH with North Central IL on March 21, 2014, St Norbert 3B Derek Klegin hit into the triple play plus 2 K's and a single.

On April 2, 2014, Plymouth State catcher Dan Armstrong went 2 for 4 against Babson but hit into a triple play and a double play.  (He came close to the "cycle".)

Baldwin-Wallace 2B Mark Zimmerman went 2 for 5 scoring 2 runs and 5 RBI.  He hit into a double play in the first, 6-4-3. Zimmerman grounded to second in the 3rd.  He walked and scored in the 4th. He hit a 2-RBI single to right in the 5th.  He hit a 3-run homer in the 6th. The 5-4-3 triple play occurred in the 8th.  Final score Baldwin-Wallace 16, Wooster 12.

On April 27th, Piedmont dh Patrick Lyons went 0 for 3 with an RBI in the Piedmont 5-4 victory. He walked in the 2nd inning and was out on a SAC bunt. He struck out looking in the 4th. He was given an RBI on a 1-6-3 double play in the 6th. He hit into a 6-4-3 triple play in the 8th.

UW-Stout C Jared Francois went 0-3 against UW-Stevens Point on May 9th.  He flied to CF in the 2nd.  He had the 5-4-3 triple play in the 4th.  He was out 6-3 in the top of the 7th, in the 13-3 loss in the WIAC Tourney.

On May 9th, LeTourneau DH David Perkins went 1 for 4, including  home run, hitting into a 6-4-3 triple play, ground out to SS, and  struck out looking.;board=1563.0

General Division III issues / Directors Cup
« on: June 10, 2012, 05:10:04 pm »
Middlebury wins the 2011-12 Learfield Sports Directors' Cup.

Once again, I wish that the scoring involved the concept of the Participant Ratio (PR), the number or participating schools in a sport versus the number of full members in good standing in D-III.

RIT gets 100 pts for beating 48 other women's Ice Hockey teams. 

UWW gets 100 points for beatin 410+ other women's teams in women's basketball.

A PR would multiply the awarded Directors' Cup point total per sport by the participant ratio in that sport to make scoring more representative of how many opponents you defeated to win the national championship.
