Ithaca has finally joined the Liberty League in baseball. That gives the conference 10 teams, which means divisional play.

LL East
Bard, RPI, Skidmore, Union, Vassar

LL West
Clarkson, Ithaca, RIT, Rochester, St. Lawrence

Instead of four-game conference weekends, series will be three games - doubleheader Saturday (9, 7 innings), single game Sunday (9).

So in looking at the schedules of LL members you play 3 games against every other team in your division and play a three game weekend against 2 0f 5 teams in the other division... ::) Still not close to a balanced schedule.

SLU rightfully picked last.  Man do I miss Tom Fay.

A GREAT START...The Union College Dutchmen are in Winter Haven, Florida for their annual southern trip. So far, so good as they've swept consecutive doubleheaders beating Purchase twice yesterday and Castleton and Capital today. The trip continues with doubleheaders against Alma and Trine. The preseason Liberty League pick is showing how it's done. ;)

I can't wait to see the Dutchmen at Shuttleworth Park on 3/21 vs. RIT.

Thanks D3baseball.com for the headline recognition.  :)

Well of course I didn't get to see the Dutchmen at Shuttleworth Park. Union finished it's Florida swing with a slugfest doubleheader split with Alma before dropping two games to Trine where the bats inexplicably went silent. A 5-3 start to what would become...the season. :'( I feel bad for the seniors. Is this the last we'll see of stalworts Colin Kelly and Sean Cullen? Also Jack Myers and pitchers Josh Garber, Dominic Nardone and Colin Nye.  Tough way to end their careers. Let's hope there's a path for some of them to return next season.

They can return but for private schools with high tuition, it will depend on each players circumstances.

Seniors from many of the LL teams  also have pretty limited options in terms of graduate school.   Look for Clarkson to try and scoop some of these guys up.

One avenue would be moving up a division or NAIA  I can see many seniors making with the experience making a mark in a scholarship program.

Interestingly Clarkson has a Capital District graduate school just yards from the Union College campus. That would be something if Union baseball seniors chose to attend the Clarkson CRC, Capital Region Campus, and play for the Golden Knights...I'd say that's not happening.

I wasn’t specifically referring to Union players, just the LL in general.
