VA Wesleyan sweeps EMU 5-0 and 11-6 to move to 8-9 on the ODAC with 3 games remaining in conference.  Really think they need to go 3-0 to get in as they still find themselves with the 7th spot just behind Lynchburg College.

Up next is Hampden Sydney coming in on a 3 game winning streak.  I'm assuming Marlins will put SO Dylan Stokus in the bump. Defense will be key to win todays game.

BRIDGEWATER ENTERS AS TOP SEED

FOREST, Va. --- Bridgewater College (28-9 overall, 19-2 ODAC) owns the top seed in the 2013 ODAC Baseball Tournament as the Eagles lost just one time in 20 conference games to put them in driver's seat as they look to build upon an ODAC record 13 titles on the diamond.  Two tiebreakers were needed to sift out the six-team field that will compete in the double-elimination tourney at Lynchburg's historic City Stadium.

Hampden-Sydney College (21-15-1, 13-7) and Shenandoah University (26-9, 13-7) were the first pair to be separated by the conference tiebreakers.  It required the second step in the league's process, which involves a five-point system based on league victories.  The Tigers came out on top and will play out of the second position, while the Hornets will make their ODAC baseball tournament debut as the third seed.

SU's opponent will be Washington and Lee University (18-15, 11-9), which earned the fourth seed outright, as did Randolph-Macon College (17-15-1, 10-9-1) in the five slot.  The sixth and final position in the tournament was determined via the five-point tiebreaking system.  Roanoke College (18-19, 10-10) came out ahead of Guilford College, which secured the Maroons sixth seed and their first tournament appearance since 2004.

City Stadium, home of the minor league Lynchburg Hillcats, will play host to each of the tournament contests for the eighth consecutive season.  Play begins on Thursday, April 25 and runs through championship Sunday on April 28.  The first of Thursday's three games begins at 11:00 a.m.

Listed below is the schedule for the 2013 ODAC Baseball Tournament.  Due to the double elimination format, play on Saturday and Sunday could be altered depending on the number of teams remaining in the field (scenarios outlined on tournament website).

For more information on the tournament, visit any of the participating schools' websites or go to the ODAC Baseball Tournament website at www.odaconline.com/tournament/baseball.

My picks for today's games:

Bridgewater vs Roanoke - The Eagles will probably throw JR Robert Gallet, and I am guessing Roanoke will go with Cameron Holshouser.  Eagles have too much offense for the mediocre Roanoke pitching to contend with.

Hampden Sydney vs Randolph Macon - Tigers will probably throw JR Aaron Stidham who threw well in their win vs RMC earlier in the year.  The Yellow jackets will probably counter with Michael Helbig.  This one will be tight but I think Randolph Macon comes out with the win, as it will be tough to shut down Keeler, Fletcher and Benjamin.

Shenandoah vs WLU - Hornets will probably go with SR Nick McMahon vs Washington and Lee's Ian Shaw.  Offense will be the key here as the first team to get 12 runs will win.

Day 1 results:

Bridgewater (3) Roanoke (1) ... bottom line, Bridgewater executed and Roanoke couldn't get the big hit.  Coach McGuire and staff has done a 180 with this program in a short time frame.

RMC (7) HSC (5)

W&L (7) SU (4) ... W&L might be a sleeper to win it?

ODAC school's endowment status as of 2012:

1,261,553,000 ... Washington & Lee University
  154,465,000 ... Hollins University
  135,271,000 ... Randolph College
  128,988,000 ... Hampden-Sydney College
  118,586,000 ... Randolph-Macon College
  113,871,000 ... Roanoke College
   84,725,000 ... Sweet Briar College
   79,931,000 ... Emory & Henry College
   74,074,000 ... Lynchburg College
   65,932,000 ... Guilford College
   62,823,000 ... Bridgewater College
   52,670,000 ... Shenandoah University
   48,640,037 ... Virginia Wesleyan College
   20,828,000 ... Eastern Mennonite University



After reviewing the endowment status of each school, Roanoke College's $113,871,000 status of 2012 grabs my attention because their baseball program is the only program within the ODAC that does not have their own baseball facility and are constantly fighting battles to get a facility just to practice on.

The baseball staff is making great strides in turning this program around.  Why cannot the admin take some money from the endowment and build their own softball/baseball complex or give the City of Salem some cash to upgrade Kiwanis field? 

Is this fair to the student-athletes not having a dedicated field to call their own to practice on?

The parents of the baseball program as well as the softball program will need to unite to voice their concern to the administration.

Hey guys - just wondering if there is anyone out there that puts out any analysis of ODAC freshmen incoming baseball players. Are there any Mitch Keeler's in this years class?

Nothing was more frustrating than showing up to practice and watching a middle school game run 45 minutes into our practice time.

A lot of rumors were constantly floating around about a new facility on Elizabeth campus but apparently the neighborhood didn't light the idea of the lights at night. Watching Coach McGuire and his staff last year is very exciting, and I hope that with the success he will surely bring, a baseball facility will finally be put into the works.

I cant speak much of the softball program but if I'm not mistaken, isn't the D3 softball world series hosted in Salem where Roanoke plays?
