On a NICE Spring afternoon, Amherst won a game over a tough ECSU team on Memorial Field...3-1.
A rare game without an Announcer.  Eastern Conn State always field a team that contends for the Little East conference...and plays competitively against Amherst...in several sports.

Bowdoin's 2017 season is off to a tough start.  The P'bears now stand at 4-8 on the young season.  Hopefully the double header the play Friday will be the catalyst for a turn around.

Good news!  Bowdoin managed to sweep their double header with Keuka which brings their overall record to 6-8.  Nice way to build some momentum as they return north.

Wesleyan won in great fashion the other day against Hamilton, walking off in 12 innings. This put them in the others receiving votes category (barely), and pushed them to 11-3. A good start for a team that has had  quite a few ball players in recent years drafted to the MLB.

The weather is wreaking havoc with Bowdoin's schedule.  The P'bears had to postpone two games with Amherst and now have moved four games to Waterville due to un-playable field conditions in Brunswick.  Bowdoin dropped one of those games to USM 0-6.  .

Bowdoin had a tough outing yesterday losing to USM, 0-6.  Hopefully they can bounce back this weekend as they play 3 games against Bates in Waterville.

GoUBears!!

Congrats to the Polar Bears for defeating nationally ranked Tufts on Sunday, 3-2.  With the win Bowdoin still has a shot at the NESCAC tournament.  Well done!

No matter how many times I pinch myself, it seems that Middlebury (a school not known for its baseball for a long time, if ever) is playing tomorrow for the NESCAC title.
Doesn't seem possible, but it's true.
Blessed with a great first year class by the previous coach, former Bates coach Mike Leonard has his Panthers playing their best ball in May.
Midd can lose a game and take a Mulligan tomorrow morning at 9 as they've won 2 games while the winner of the Tufts-Amherst game has one loss already.
Wishing the Panthers all the good karma possible.  If they falter, it's still been an exciting season for NESCAC baseball in Vermont. 
No one I've spoken with saw this season coming.

Congrats to Tufts.
They came back on Sunday and beat Middlebury twice to win the NESCAC title.

Strange....No one has posted on this board....except Middhoops...for a 120 day’s....wow!
Watched the third game between Amherst and Williams today at Amherst.  It was a sunny but cool day in a game between arch rivals...that started college baseball so long ago in Pittsfield Ma......almost a 150 years ago.  Amherst won the three game series 2-1...Nescac West Division over the weekend.

An off-season post.  Amherst’s fine head coach for the past nine years has resigned for personal reasons.  Nation wide search for a new coach has started.  Particulars are on the Amherst website.
Seems the Midd alum has been commuting from New Haven for the past 3 seasons.

On the eve of a new Nescac football season, a note and a follow up of my last post here.
Amherst has hired a new baseball coach...the former HC of Clark Un.  The particulars are on the Amherst Athletic website.  The new HC is a NE native and will join the Amherst staff in Sept.
