New England Region / BB: CCC: The Commonwealth Coast Conference
« on: March 22, 2009, 07:18:08 pm »
Hey Word here,

Now that I have a connection to TCCC I'd like to see if there are others out there that want to discuss 3-C baseball.

I attended the Salve vs WNEC games today. Golden Bears lost a tough one to Salve in the first game but held on to take the second game. I could only stay through the 5th inning of the second game but I will say this about the two teams.

Salve is a gritty team, they play hard and are sound. They surprised me.

WNEC has some very good young players. Second game pitcher Mark DiTommaso, a freshman, is a kid to watch.  I like Tommy Bouvier as a hitter, smart and goes with the pitch; centerfielder Chris Newell  is a gamer, I don't think he is totally healthy but again he competes. Several other nice players round out the squad.

Overall, from what I see WNEC has the talent and is good enough to compete in the LEC. Can't wait for April 22. Pizza and grinders are on Word.

7 inning  in conference games certainly make coaches game plan differently. Still trying to get used to that difference.

All in all, I think WNEC and Roger Williams will fight it out for the TCCC, oops, my daughter reminds me it is TCCC as the T stands for The! :P Below is the preseason coaches poll. I think Salve may be better than previously touted.

Your Thoughts. We are discussing this topic in the NE Region.

Issues to consider:
     Safety
     Cost
     Transition
     Conference vs NCAA
      (i.e. if some conferences make the move and others don't like the NE-10 in D-II)


Moderator:  This message board is the place to discuss quesitons of wood versus metal bats.  It began with a discussion arising in the NE Region.  Thanks to wordsmith for starting the topic.
