Looking forward to following this board!  My son is currently deciding between teams in the SCIAC and NWC...my gut says he'll end up in the SCIAC though.

Welcome! If you have not already, you might want to check out this thread:

http://www.d3boards.com/index.php?topic=8424.0

Also, a few pages back in the thread we're on there is recent rundown of the fields at various schools.  But it occurs to me that this doesn't cover the athletic buildings, which can also have a big impact on a player's experience.

Of the ones I have seen:

Oxy:  meh
P/P:  very nice, close to field
Redlands: ditto
Chapman: outstanding
CMS: outstanding

Thanks!  Lots of info to read through!

Caltech Coach Matthew Mark will be stepping down as he and his wife choose build their family closer to relatives back east.

I expect that Mark will find an opportunity with plenty of schools near Pittsburgh.

I would expect they both would have opportunities.

Phew, finally.  Sunny and 75.

What undoubtedly will be recorded in the books as the Great Winter of 19, lasted a grueling, seemingly unending 4 days.  Somehow we made it.

Welcome back baseball. On tap: Alumni games and exhibitions vs. local NAIA and D2s.

Looking forward to another season.  Cal Lu kicked off with an exhibition yesterday against Providence Christian, who is coached by former Cal Lu player Trevor Davidson.  Cal Lu had no issue with this one with a 21-1 victory.  A total of 29 players saw action and a new arm each inning.  Looking forward to seeing how everyone else doesn't in their exhibition games coming up.

Interesting to see Chapman lose their (arguably) top arm from last year...

Looks like he graduated. Roster has him as a grad student. Must of had eligibility left.

Of course.  I just look at it as it's not the most common thing in the D3 world to go from a D3 to D1 for your last year of eligibility instead of staying where you were.  Tough loss for Chapman.

Good for the kid.  Chapman will be fine, I expect.  Still have experienced arms...probably one of the few schools that could withstand that sort of thing (losing 2 junior starters for their senior year), even though it does seem to pull them back toward the middle - on paper, at least.

Who was hit hardest by graduation?
