Schools from the midwest/mideast go to AZ as well. Oberlin goes out to Az.

How much do the guys who write the articles actually know?

Writing those is a lot of time and research and not always having a connection to get the info. I walked away from writing the Central Preview as I didn't feel I had the time to devote to doing it properly... not that I don't follow the Central as closely as before as I am often reading scores/stories while on the bus heading home from a high school road game.

I know Jim would love the help if anyone is volunteering their time and efforts.

Truth. On top of that, as someone that votes and writes for the West Region, so much depends on the schools that actually get us information. For the West this year, we had like... 10 schools total from the four conferences reply back with information. Heck, half the teams haven't even updated their rosters on their pages by the time the previews were written. And the d3 landscape changes a ton with transfers, injuries, early graduates, etc. that we have no access to. So it can be tough  :-\
Yes I learned long ago that if my school is not being covered by D3 baseball, it is probably because the SID does not reply to the inquiry and does not take advantage of the D3 page.

They are volunteers, so some know a lot some not so much. In the past some of the mideast reviews have been very good (thanks spence(I believe you used to do the mideast)) Other years certain conferences have very little info posted. A lot of it depends on the time the volunteer puts into it. I am sure Jim Dixon will take any volunteers who know more.

I am not an Alum of my sons school, but a week does not go by when they are not calling/emailing/other type of fundraising. I can only imagine the communication my son is getting. Unlike sports the seson seems to be all year round for fundraising.  ;D

I agree I dislike the 7-9 inning games. The number one almost always pitches those games and you are right, it gives a big advantage to the team with a guy that can go 7 inning no sweat. A couple of years ago, in OWU's bad year, Our number one guy could never go 7 innings, and it really hurt us for the other games during the weekend. OWU went 13-26 that year.

I agree that it was probably thrown out and redone. The one item that caught my I that I do not remember seeing in the past, Is the Easter exception. I did not remember previous years including the line that if the game is played on a Friday, it would be considered a week day game. I am not sure what the difference would be between a weekday game and a weekend game.
But I see now that it is also on the 2017 schedule which probably means it was always there before. I will have to see if I can previous schedules and see if the wording is the same. The NCAC can be very sloppy with there documentation.

Hopefully they will play Big Boy games and do 2 9's instead of a 7 and a 9. I doubt it though. And Pops33 +1 for the find.

yes this was attempted several years ago, but week ends only/ You would play a double header against Wabash on Saturday then a DH against Depauw on Sunday. Ther was no midweek games and one rainout played havoc with the schedule.
Allegheny and Wooster were tied, but they were rained out. Allegheny found a field and tried to get a reschedule.  Wooster refused so it went coin flip and Wooster won.
The next year it went back to the East west format, and a year later the cross over began.

I like this because it leaves Sundays open for make ups. You can also schedule games with out of conference foes. However if you have to have a makeup, you cancel the OOC game. Very similar to how the OAC does it.
The only problems I see with this is you lose some of those OOC games during the week. It will also force Kenyon to play during the week. Kenyon and Oberlin (they may have changed) do not play games during the week once they get back from Spring break. And some of the teams have 3 Away games in a row, each and every year this is in place.
