One could argue that Chapman is a part of greater Los Angeles area, but it is still a 30-40 minute ride from LAX.
Lets not go down this road again.  "The Los Angeles Panthers of Orange, CA".

HA!!!!! My students have no idea why I am laughing right now, but that is a great line... especially if you live in the LA area and understand the Orange County vs. LA County battles for the naming rights!

I wonder how Danville got a hold on the south regional....they haven't hosted the USAS tournament in two years and as far as I know the ODAC doesn't use the field either. I just looked at the schedule and the USAS conference tournament is once again in Burlington, NC.  It's a well know fact that the South regional should be held at NCWC, everytime it is we go to the World Series ;)

Is there a contract now with danville and how long will the regionals be played their?
Will the regionals move once shelton graduates from Averett?  It seems like when Yost (drafted) and Guessford left averett the USAS tournament moved from Danville to Burlington, NC. Closer to Maloney (player of the year), and the Pride.

Danville had the Dixie tournament in Jason Dooley's last year in D-III as well. I don't really know how they got it, but I think it's a nicer facility for it than Burlington or G'Boro, Winston-Salem or Lynchburg, all of which are older places and/or larger than they need to be. And Danville's a city that can use all the help it can get at this point, with the mills having shut down and local tobacco trade practically extinct.

Danville's also probably the most centrally located for the part of the region where most all the teams are. I talked to Ed Fulton one time about the possibility of having an early-season invitational similar to what they're doing in Abilene now at Dan Daniel as an alternative for some teams to going to Florida. He seemed to like the idea, but nothing ever became of it. One issue might be the fact that he/Averett doesn't own DDP.

Anyway, unless you expect a hardy nightlife after the games, I think Danville should do just fine as a site.


I think the DDP is owned by the braves, just another field with a big wall and where foul balls go to die.

Well that's what I meant.  Other than St Norbert in 2003, and McMurry in 2004, there haven't been any teams moved in or out of the West Region since 2002.  :o ;D

Incorrect. DDP is city-owned and the D-Braves are a tenant unit.

The name of the stadium is actually American Legion Post 325 Field or something. Dan Daniel Park is the whole complex.

It is a large park but not ridiculously so -- or maybe I'm spoiled -- and is in the middle of a hill, so unless the wind is blowing from the west it won't happen there. I never thought of it as having an excessive amount of foul territory, but again, I might have a different perspective on them from some, because Schaly Stadium's pretty good sized with quite a bit of foul territory.

I've played at the DDP a couple times and I believe that it is no better than any other field.  Not the stands or the concessions, but the actual field, dirt, mounds, and crabgrass.

As for where foul balls go to die, if they leave the stadium on the left field side they will never be found.  They have a tendency to roll off the hill.  Burlington maybe not the prettiest field to look at but it has history.

Oh I thought you meant that it had a lot of foul territory and foul balls were outs, not literally that they aren't found.

The surface no, is nothing special. Burlington's stadium has history, but most of that history is from when it was in Danville. :)

I think if the regional being in Danville is better than usual, it'll be because of local support. I'll be interested to see if they can get generate it.

It seemed like there was a better draw at burlington the last two years, a lot of people I know dreaded going to dvegas, can't really do anything about it now.

Eastern Connecticut, Little East Co-Host 2009 NCAA Division III Baseball New England Regional
NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. - The NCAA Division III Baseball Committee has chosen Eastern Connecticut State University and the Little East Conference to co-host the New England Region of the 2009 NCAA Division III Baseball Tournament. The Eastern Baseball Stadium in Mansfield, Conn. is just one of eight pre-determined sites for the national tournament field.

 "The conference office is looking forward to assisting Eastern Connecticut in hosting the NCAA Division III Baseball New England Region, "Commissioner Jonathan C. Harper said. "It is our expectation that this regional will be a first-class event for student-athletes, coaches, parents and fans that will travel to Mansfield."

The Warriors will serve as the host institution for the 16th time in the 34-year history of the championship. The Eastern Baseball Stadium opened in April 1, 1998, and has hosted the New England Regional three prior times. The stadium is located just over the Willimantic city line, one-half mile north of the main campus.

The NCAA Division III Baseball Selection Committee is scheduled to announce the pairings for each of the eight regional fields the morning of Monday, May 11. The regional tournament will begin on Wednesday, May 13 and the champion will be crowned on Sunday, May 17. The championship team from the New England Region will advance to the 2009 NCAA Division III Championship Round in Appleton, Wisconsin.

If you are unable to make the trip to Mansfield, Conn., you can follow all the action live on the Little East Conference Web site. The tournament championship page will provide full coverage of the New England Region with a link for real-time statistics and video broadcast for each of the games. The Eastern Connecticut sports information staff will be running live in-game statistics, while Bridgewater Television (BTV9) will be producing each broadcast.   

From 1976 through 1990, the national tournament was comprised of six-regional fields with the champion of each region advancing the NCAA Division III Championship Round. The Northeast and New York Regional Tournaments were established in 1991, expanding the field to the current-day eight-regional format. The New England tournament has been hosted by just three institutions besides Eastern Connecticut: The University of Southern Maine at both its on-campus facility in Gorham and at Hadlock Field in Portland - the home of the Double A Eastern League franchise, the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) at Whitehouse Field in Harwich, Mass., and Wesleyan University at Palmer Field in Middletown, Conn. Since 1998, the regional tournament has been staged in either Mansfield or Harwich.

Other sites for the 2009 NCAA Division III Regional are as follows: Augustana College (Ill.) (Central Region), Adrian College (Mideast Region), University of Wisconsin-Oshkosch (Midwest Region), State University of College at Old Westbury and the Skyline Conference (New York Region), Salisbury University (South Region), and Linfield College (West Region). The Mid-Atlantic Region has yet to be assigned.
