How does the song go...."Two out of three ain't bad....";  it's actually surprising to me how few sweeps there are in conference play.  Every winning pitcher in the series was a senior which is telling.  Big weekend for both programs coming up.

Welcome aboard.

My rule of thumb is your team must sweep the series against the "non-post-season-conference-tournament" teams and then win the 3-games series against the rest, especially when playing at home.  "Defend your house". If you only halve the 2-game or 4-game series, you make no progress.

Hey NESCAC Fans,

It's really unfortunate that we have to do this, but we have less than two weeks to raise a small fortune ($350) in order to renew our ownership of the domain name nothingbutnescac.com so if you've found our coverage of NESCAC sports entertaining, please consider helping us to keep it going for another two years!

Sincerely,
NbN

45 runs allowed in 5 games for Bates. Not exactly the ideal start to the NESCAC baseball season.

Now all NESCAC sports have cancelled their spring seasons.  How very sad for all involved.

Grinnell (Iowa) just cancelled all spring sports as well.
Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.
