Mideast Region / Re: BB: 2011 Mideast Regional (Marietta)

I think I read somewhere that Wabash gave Salisbury all they wanted in their South regional contest. I really believe that Marietta is a solid favorite to win it all in Appleton. I sincerely believe that there are more good teams in the Mideast region than any other in the country. Am I being somewhat parochial here or are there others who share the same belief????

Congratulations to the Marietta College Pioneers on their Mideast Regional Championship. I wouldn't bet against them to win it all next week in Appleton. Also, I want to offer my sincere Congrats to the Heidelberg Seniors for all of their accomplishments. Gramps, correct me if I'm wrong... At least 2 OAC championships, 1 regional title, 2 regional second place finishes and third at the D3 NCAA National Championships. Simply outstanding! It was a pleasure meeting you.... Good luck to you and your grandson!!

Not really surprising to me that Wabash is on the brink of defeating CNU. The NCAC is stronger than many on this site care to believe. The NCAC had a winning record this season against the highly touted OAC. Also, I read on here that CNU had a 25 day layoff from the conference tourney to the regional. Last year Woo scored 42 runs in the NCAC tourney and then had 18 days until the ME regional. We were flat and listless and out in two. It happens!!!!

Wooster Booster,
I haven't been on here in some time but I'd like to respond to your comment s regarding Justin McDowell and the Denison game. I realize in advance the futility of trying to argue with someone whose knowledge of baseball is sorely lacking. If you were really watching the play in question, The 3b called for the bunt but couldn't get there. So JM tried to but couldn't make the play. Pettorini comes out on a dead sprint, unwilling to listen to JM's explanation and then makes the call to the bullpen. At this point, JM had surrendered only one earned run! The subsequent stream of relievers gave up 8 earned runs... Great call by Coach P. For four years, I watched as Pettorini swore at and embarrassed my son as well as other players. No one ever openly said a word in criticism. Well, by the Denison incident described above, I'd had enough! I reserve the right to say what I want to whoever I want unless/until  someone is man enough to shut me up! I don't know who you are but your cheap shot at my son and I in the anonymity of cyberspace, reveals your cowardice!! Coach P cost us several games this year with questionable substitutions and poor game management!

The North Coast Athletic Conference tourney begins Thursday afternoon at Veterans Field in Chillicothe. Woo vs. Witt at 4:00 and OWU vs. Wabash at 8:00. This is the first time in awhile there is no clear cut favorite in the field!

 It's a mystery why Pettorini pulled McDowell. He gave up a run in the 1st on a bloop single but got out of the inning with a double play. He walked the lead off man in the 2nd who advanced to 2b on a throwing error by the 3b. Pettorini came running out of the dugout and made the call. No effort to even talk to the kid. Several Wooster parents were very upset with the hook. It seemed like the coach was deliberately trying to embarrass his Senior pitcher. Anyone who knows Woo baseball  knows that Coach P's on field handling of players and situations leaves a lot to be desired. McDowell has always got stronger as the came goes on.He certainly deserved better than what he got from his coach on Friday. There is a growing feeling among the team that Coach P has thrown his upperclassmen under the bus in order to prepare for the future!

I've seen both Heidelberg and Marietta play this season. Marietta has more and better pitchers than HC. HC might have slightly more power than MC but MC has better at bats. Defensively, they are both very good. If both teams play as well as they are capable, then I give a slight edge to MC. Having said this, either team can win on any given day.

The Scots grabbed a 6-5 victory Wed. at W & J. Once again, Woo let a large lead slip away due to shoddy defensive play. In fact, 4/5 of W & J's runs were unearned. The team is swinging the bats better while the pitching has been consistent. Woo could be a sleeper team come tourney time if they can shore up the defense. Woo travels to B-W on Friday then hosts Case for two on Sunday.

Go Scots!
Expect Victory!

Scots Fan,
Today's game at B-W has been postponed. No word yet on a make-up date. Curiously, Woo's baseball home page indicates that Saturday's DH at Allegheny has also been postponed. I went to the Allegheny baseball home page and there is no mention of any postponement.

Musky at Woo scheduled today for 4:00 has been postponed. No make-up date has been set . Woo is at B-W Thursday, at Allegheny for 2 on Saturday and then home Sunday for 2 against Hiram. I predict that the Scots will win 4 out of those 5 games. Any takers!!!!

Old Scot,
The new NCAC scheduling format require each team to play 16 league games. If a team can  split on the road and go at least 6-2 at home, then a 10-6 record should get them in the conference tourney. The Scots pitching has been solid this year. The problem has been situational hitting. We start 5 freshman who have shown improvement at the plate. I would venture a guess that Woo has stranded more RISP than almost any team in D3. We are taking way too many first pitch fastballs then seeing off speed stuff the rest of the count. However, this team is slowly making progress. And remember, it's more important to be playing well in May than April!!!

It's finally here....... baby! The Wooster Scots open their season Sunday with a 12:00 contest against La Grange (Georgia). The Panthers are 10-4 but own an 8-1 home record. Should be a real good test for the Scots. Coach P will find out early if he can expect the much needed contributions from his heralded Freshman class.

Go Scots!
Expect victory!
PS Give em hell Justin!

Sly Nino was my son's High School team mate. Please offer him my congratulations for his fine outing today. Just tell him it came from "Mac Daddy".

Good luck in your search process. Wherever your son ends up he will have the ride of a lifetime!!

We will see how good the Warhawks are after they play Wooster four games in Port Charlotte!!
