The SCIAC has now won two of the last three championships. :) :)

Congratulations Chapman players and fans,
As well as all SCIAC followers.

West region continues to dominate World Series!!
As Gray Fox noted, SCIAC has won two of the last three!!
Let's remember that Chapman beat Whitman 3-2 on an unearned run (error on the pitcher) in the bottom of the 9th in Game 5.

Talking about balance in the West Region, Whitman was not even ranked!

Congrats to Chapman. The Panthers came so close, so many times in the previous decade.

They now have their Walnut and Bronze.

Don't forget, Chapman won it all in 2003 which was in the middles of their insane streak of teams that were as good as I have ever seen at the d3 level.

Thanks. After I had posted that, I wanted to revise it.  That whole mid-decade of Chapman teams were incredible.

But, then, none could outdo their 1968 National Champs.

1968 was an entirely different brand of ball.

You had large numbers of players going to the NFL and NBA from NAIA schools.

The "majors" were the PAC-8, the Big 8, the Big 10, the 8 in the SWC which would admit U of Houston in the fall of 1968, the ACC with 8 schools, the SEC with only 10 or 11 schools and the 5 big schools in the East competing for the Lambert and a half dozen independents, Notre Dame, Tulane, Ga Tech, Army, Navy. How many are in D-1 FBS now?

You did not have restrictions on the number of scholarships you could give.

Title IX? What is Title IX?

YES!!  Cant wait for the season to pick up again.  Looking forward to a strong SCIAC season and hopefully some new challengers to Chapman.

Agree 100%, but Chapman should be tough this year.  From a quick look at their roster, it looks like most of their offensive production is returning.  Pitching-wise, all three of the starters graduated, but there's plenty of talent behind them. We'll see if they are ready to step up.

My son told me this weekend one of his teammates has a friend at Chapman.  He said they had 40 freshman players come out for the team.  6 of them made it.  Pretty interesting if true...good chance they are exaggerating but maybe someone with ties to Chapman can confirm or not.

Gotta look deeper than numbers. How many were recruited.  Maybe those 6 were recruited and the rest were true walkons.
I imagine schools like Chapman when they are having success, have guys show up in the fall that the coach did not recruit. Many of those are "cut" at tryouts. Some are kept on through fall.
