Allen HS is where Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner played and led Allen to a Texas large school State Title. That HS has over 4,700 students in grades 9-12.

UT Tyler moves to DIV II and is to join the Lone Star Conference on July 1, 2019. They will compete one more year in the ASC.

The difference this year was that UTT had a very durable starting group. They may not have been as dominant as TLU but were effective. They got a lot of innings out of their top 3 starters at both the regional and World Series. That turned out to be the difference as TLU top 2 starters were not as durable and they were forced into their bullpen more. UTT top 2 starters threw complete games and then came back on 3 days rest and pitched deep into those games. TLU was not that fortunate.

Unfortunately but not surprising - not even one line in the Dallas Morning News about UTT this morning. They did find space to print a small line about Oklahoma State's men's golf team making the finals. Not even a Texas School!  :'( UTT  is only 2 hours east of Dallas and lot of its players and student body come from the DFW area.

I wanted to talk about the balance of the ASC.  All season long I had said there was no dominate team but a lot of balance. Because of that balance and beating each other I assumed that only the conference champion would receive a bid to the regionals. I was wrong and gladly so. This conference was the most balanced and IMO the the strongest in DIII.  We had 3 teams make it to the regionals. Concordia was the regular season champion. UTD the conference champion and UTT a regional and World Series Champion. Concordia had beaten UTT 4 out of 6 games they met this year. UTD beat Concordia for the Conference Championship and UTT had beaten UTD 2 out of 3 during the regular season. No other conference had such diversity in their champions. Congratulations to the ASC for being the best conference in DIII baseball in 2018.

UT Tyler was truly a Cinderella story. 5 elimination games and trailing in the 9th to win the Central.  Then facing another elimination game in the 1st bracket in the World Series. Can't say enough about their tenacity. There have been teams at UTT that on paper were much better than this team. However, in the past they just did not get it done. This team had more losses than you would expect from a champion caliber team and were not anywhere in the top 25 at the end of the season. Yet they finished on top.

Tyler won the first game 8-1 getting a complete game from Sedillo. I note that TLU's starter Malinovisk who was 12-2 on the season only worked the 1st inning then was replaced.

UTT was able to start Simon Sedillo and has jumped out to a big 8-1 lead.  TLU is deep into its bullpen already. Sedillo is working on 3 days rest.

The ASC has never had a world series champion, UT Tyler has a real chance. I expect this series to go 3 games.  Both pitching staffs are working on fumes and those on the staff with light experience will have to step up. The team that can get the most quality innings out of their strained staffs will emerge victorious. This is now the end of a marathon and who can survive.

Absolutely incredible! Neither TLU or UTT were ranked very high as they were the 5th and 6th seeded teams. UTT was nowhere to be found in the top 25 and yet had to defeat several ranked teams including the #1 ranked team in the regionals and #5 ranked team in the World Series. Likewise TLU was not a favorite in the west regional and yet beat out higher seeded teams at both the regional and the world series. These two teams played each other seems like an eternity ago, UTT had a 3 game sweep of TLU on TLUs home field. That means nothing now as both teams are totally different than they were in the early spring.

Alex Masotto strikes out the side in the bottom of the 9th to preserve the UTT win 8-6.  Interesting UTT used two relief pitchers one from Canada and one from New York to get the victory.  They obviously are drawing talent from outside of Texas.

Irrespective of what happens today, the two Texas teams represented the west region well. They both made to the bracket finals - final 4!

Tyler wins again 7-3 and is in the lower bracket finals! This is a team that was a 4th seed the ASC conference tournament. They thought their season was over when they lost  to Concordia Texas in the conference tournament. Received a Pool C bid to the Central and have made the most of their second life.

UTT wins again today 7-3 and is in the lower bracket finals. If they can win one of the next two they will play a best of 3 against the upper bracket winner for the national championship.  TLU won yesterday and is in the upper bracket. Thus it is possible that two Texas teams could face each other to determine the national champion.
