It's now showing as "canceled," as well as Saturday's game against Wells.
I see the Wells game is cancelled on the site, so the team is probably heading back north.  How disappointing for all the players across the country.

This afternoon's game against PSU-Abingdon is back on the schedule, after having been marked "cancelled" yesterday, so it looks like NPU is going to get in one last game.

Incidentally, Jake Reinhardt's homer yesterday was a grand slam.

Today's scheduled game against Simpson in Florida is now listed as cancelled.  There has been no official announcement, but I strongly suspect IWU's baseball season is over.  They finish 7-3.

The NCAA just announced that they will be providing Eligibility Relief to all athletes in spring sports for Division 1. Im holding out hope that this same relief will be extended to D2 and D3 athletes as well if seasons truly are canceled.

It's now official. The CCIW has canceled all spring sports.
Just heartbreaking for all the student-athletes, coaches, and fans.  And announcers.  It was shaping up to be an interesting race for the CCIW.

Bobby Winkles (IWU '52) has passed away. 

Winkles was 524-173 as the baseball coach at Arizona State and won 3 national championships ('65, '67, '69).  Also managed in Angles and A's in MLB.

Certainly a legendary Titan who will be missed.
