Exit Illinois Tech, enter Finlandia...

http://www.wiacsports.com/news/2018/7/16/wiac-announces-addition-of-finlandia-university-for-baseball.aspx

Observing upper peninsula weather for the past 100 years tells me a lot of those FinnU home games are going to end up being played on the road.
How quickly does this restore the Pool A bid to the WIAC?
WIAC would stay in Pool B for 2019 and 2020, and then regain Pool A status starting in 2021 if everything I have read is accurate...

Candidly, Finlandia, in UP, needs games worse than Illinois Tech, there in Chicagoland.  I am always happy when a school can find a conference in which its athletes can contend. Ill Tech seems to have found its match for mission and vision in the NACC.

I don't know how quickly we'd get our bid back but this great news.  When looking at what options the league had available Finlandia was one program I thought could be a possibility but frankly I didn't think they would go for it.  Hopefully this addition lasts longer than Ill. Tech.

The only real options for Finlandia was the WIAC or UMAC.  If the program does not get better, it will drag down the pool C chances for every other team in the WIAC.

It's just a hunch but I suspect we're in a position of taking whoever we can get.  We did alright Pool C wise with Superior in the league and they didn't do a whole heck of a lot to improve anyone's chances.   
If you try to fail and succeed which have you done?

I saw this last night... $500,000 is a massive donation to a small school. I love to see guys giving back.

If the first couple of series are any indication, it appears UWO doesn't have much pitching once you get past Treml....  Add in the fact that they have scored a grand total of 15 tuns in six games, it doesn't leave a large margin of error which is probably why they sit at 1-5 thus far.

After two more weekend trips to Kentucky and Indiana (they've already gone to Alabama and Tennessee) the conference season is scheduled to begin. 

I would be curious to know if the four weekend trips end up costing more, less, or about the same as a week long trip to Florida like most schools seem to do.

UWSP falls to Amherst in their season opener 6-5.  UWSP has the lead in the 9th at 5-3.  Pitching depth looks to be a problem again.

Any idea if these players just hung them up or transferred out of the program?

Zamudio became a student assistant this year, I assume the others quit playing but donít know for sure.

UWSP loses today to Anderson University(IN) 7-4.....a team La Crosse beat 11-0....that's alarming
