It does happen in baseball. Not too much in the NCAC. Take a look at rosters in the OAC. Most of them are mid 40's. Ocassionally I will see freshman classes in the 20's. baseball only has 9 players. And it is not as physically hazardous for your health.

Any opinions on the new matte black and chrome helmets for this season?  I think they're pretty cool as an alternative lid, but I want to see what they wear them with before giving them the thumbs up.
I like them but whenever I see a flat black like that my fingernails start to itch/hurt. To much like a chalk board.

He recruited my son to walk om at LEC. Son really  liked McGee. LEC used t be d3, before  he wa d there. We talked about thay. He said je would not voach at d3. So if he takes the kob, I'll find it humorous.
Hne would be a heck of a get for Witt. He can recruit. Son did not like the school.  And everything seemed run down.

The UAA is going away from the spring break tournament.  I am not sure what this means for chicago, and if they will compete in the UAA for baseball. But they may be able to compete in both.

But not a good time of the year to be looking for a new coach. D3 recruiting does not start in earnest until later in the summer or early fall, but that is coming fast. I wonder how long Witt and Wabash will take for the search.

The article I saw indicated that he intended to stay in baseball.

Looks like he may want to coach with out all the recruiting involved. No offense to Wabash but it cannot be an easy place to recruit for. Baseball does not have the history of success that the football program can. My son liked the idea of a all male school and was very close to going there. It was not Coach Stevens that was the issue. In the end he made the right decision with OWU.

Cory Stevens has resigned from his position as the manager of the Wabash baseball team after ten years in charge.
Any idea what he is doing now? Is he going to continue with Baseball.

He did a nice job there and took a leadership role in the NCAC in general. I wish him well. He was one of the first to recruit my son. I know the last couple of years has been tough. He brought in a huge freshman class last year. They should be pretty good in not to long.

I do not blame anyone for bettering their situation. I can understand changing jobs to spend more time with family. I have done it myself. I just thought it was a bit coincidental that the BBall coaches leave at the same time and the recent records at both programs.
Witt has been middle of the road in baseball as long as I have been paying attention. They would usually finish 3 or 4 the west. occasionally higher. For many years it was always OWU,Denison, and Witt as the top 3 in the west, Then you had Wabash and Earlham. The last couple of years though, Witt has been just plain bad in baseball. They have been losing many recruits to Otterbein, the last couple of years and some of the other schools in mid Ohio.  Witts roster used to have quite a few very talented players from central Ohio, but those numbers have dwindle. They still have players from around here but they are many times they are second tier guys. 
I know swapping Depauw for Earlham (even though Earlham was very good this year) has shuffled the power in the west, but I did not think Witt would take such a dive. I hope they get a coach soon because this is prime recruiting time. Not so much for calling players but for identifying rising seniors. If they have to wait till the fall they will behind the eight ball.
