Has anyone heard of any Sr's that will come back for another year?

I wouldn't expect a lot of Seniors to return for various reasons.  I listened to a podcast with Laverty and he said they had 7 Seniors on this years team and none of them will be back.

Which podcast?

Hopefully that will give you a good link.  The whole interview was good.

Nick Garcia is the 79th overall pick by Pittsburgh.  I am sure many hitters in the SCIAC are happy to see him gone.

I would expect Nolan McCarthy to sign as a free agent shortly after the draft.

Saw Garcia (and the rest of the D-III CWS champion Chapman squad) at the 2019 World Series.
He worked five games in the series, two against Washington & Jefferson (games I called), holding the Presidents to no runs and one hit over three innings, walking one and striking out one.  He was a beast.
Been wrong before.  Will be wrong again.

He moved into a starters role this year and it was good for he got a lot more innings than if he stayed as a closer.  Dominant in both roles.

I would expect Nolan McCarthy to sign as a free agent shortly after the draft.

Garcia signed for $1.2 million and his catcher, Joe Jimenez, signed with Pittsburgh as a free agent.

Surprised McCarthy didn't get a chance from someone as the financial impact is minimal.

Jiminez signed before MILB was cancelled but for the most part I'm guessing that MLB has stopped signing free agents.  What's the point of adding players now?

Maybe Jiminez was signed primarily to work out with Garcia.

As for McCarthy, I guess he can stay in shape and hope for next year, or find a graduate opportunity, or move on.

I think I heard he had a really nice job lined up.  I'll have to confirm.

Also, Tom Butler is expected to be coming back.  He's very close to a double major so he'll finish that and get to play again.

Bill Anderson from Oxy will be inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2021. Pretty cool.

Anybody hearing anything?

I know that the SCIAC did a Zoom a couple weeks ago and said basically we want to play but we'll see what happens.

From what we have heard from my son's school's president, if the county permits on-campus residence and instruction, they will find a way to play some sort of season for spring sports.

But that's a big if, particularly in LA county, especially right now as cases skyrocket.

Maybe if Ventura, Orange and San Bernardino counties allow colleges to open, Redlands, Chapman, and Cal Lu can have their own little conference without the LA County schools.

We've heard nothing other than they want/hope to play.  Like you said, it might be really hard to get the go-ahead from LA county.  I was hoping these smaller schools could come up with a creative way to get it done but I'm really not all that optimistic at this point.

I think at least some are coming up with good plans, and can even make the case that having the kids on campus under a strict regimen is safer than having them off.   It's also creative that they are trying to bypass the health officials and take their case directly to the county supervisors. But they literally cannot do a damn thing without county approval.

One of my sons teachers today told him today they had a teacher conference and were told they are not going back to campus in the Spring.  I guess we'll have to wait for the official confirmation, but that does not bode well for athletics.
