This is good to see. D3 players can compete against players from other levels. I wish them all well.

National topics / Clemente Cup REported on by D3Baseball.
« on: January 12, 2016, 02:44:24 pm »
This is a really neat idea. I am very happy for the young men who get this opportunity. This is part of what makes D3 sports special. THis has nothing to do with Flash and profits. Both the D3 athletes will benefit and Puerto Rican Athletes will learn more about a division of Baseball they probably know little about.

Here are the schools that I found that are competing.
SUNY - Canton
SUNY - Oneonta
New Jersey City University
Kean
Arcadia
Messiah
Misericordia
Sussquehanna
Penn state Abbington.

Congratulations to all. I am sure you will represent well.

General Division III issues / D3 philosophy
« on: December 06, 2014, 10:11:55 am »
On several boards there has been discussions about d3 sports and playoff competition.
Rock Jones the president of OWU, has a piece in a Cleveland paper about D3 sports. I think it is very appeopriate and states the D3 philosophy well.

National topics / baseball split season.
« on: September 13, 2014, 08:08:48 pm »
 
These are considered exhibitions, if I remember correctly.

This raises the question: why can't baseball play a split schedule the way tennis does?

Rather than try to play games in the north in February and early March, September and October would provide better weather.  Keep the number of games and number of weeks of play and practice the same, but have some of those weeks and games in the fall as well as the spring.

Right now CWRU tennis plays in September and then from March thru May.
ADL70 brought this subject up on the NCAC board. I thought I would post it here to see others thoughts.

National topics / Another season ends
« on: June 03, 2014, 02:31:58 pm »
Today Football moved to the top of the list on D3boards.com. This is always a melancholy time. D3 baseball is done, but hopefully most boys move on to play somewhere over the summer.

National topics / NCAA Concludes Study On Ball Seams
« on: October 04, 2013, 09:59:53 am »
http://www.baseballamerica.com/college/ncaa-concludes-study-on-ball-seams/

Most of the article talks about D1, But would D3 be far behind? They also talk about possibly going to the pro core. which would be problematic, because conferences sigh their own agreements with Ball manufacturers, and not all companies have a pro ball.

If D1 does it I would like to see D3 follow. But I would like to see wood bats at the college level as well.

Men's soccer / Soccer specific Stadiums/Fields
« on: September 11, 2013, 04:26:32 pm »
ONU is putting turf in their football stadium.

http://www.onu.edu/turfcam

In the article i mentions other sports that will benefit such as Soccer. OWU has its own Soccer field dedicated to Men's and Women's Soccer, Roy Rike field.

Wabash has Mud Hollow field, once shared with the Baseball field, but now a state of the art soccer stadium.

 What other schools have dedicated Soccer stadiums?

General football / Football players wrestling.
« on: February 18, 2013, 08:28:43 pm »
This is not completely football related but thought I would ask this here anyway.

Back in the day (80's) many of the athletes that played football also wrestled, especially linemen and non skill positions. Today it doesn't seem this happens so much.

Of all of the people on the board who played Football or still are playing football, How many of you also wrestled?

Mideast Region / Summer Leagues
« on: October 28, 2011, 12:01:16 pm »
First off not sure that this is the correct place for this topic. If not feel free to move to a better location.

I want to get an Idea were coaches in the Mid East region send their players for Summer Baseball. We have heard of all the National ones such as the Cape, NECBL, Northwoods etc.

What are the other leagues that give D3 players a chance?

See a lot of questions on other forums about were do D2 and D3 freshman play? Havent't seen a real good answer yet.

For example my son has a chance to play in the New York Collegiate Baseball League next summer. I checked all there rosters and found only a few D3 Mideast players. (caveat: I am sure I do not know all the mid east region teams, so might have missed a few.)

What do you think?
