Summary of D3 Baseball Conferences
« on: March 11, 2009, 12:31:33 am »
Fellow D-III Baseball Fans,

Integral to understanding the various roads to the Playoffs is knowing the conferences.  The basics of the conferences vary tremendously.

This topic covers the basic data for the conferences in D-III for the 2009 season.


I encourage fans to go to your favorite conference websites and then post the information about the conference on this site.  Consider this an open board.  Cut and paste as needed.  Please proofread and correct as needed. This should help us become more familiar with D-III.  If you do not want to bother with the tabular format, then post the information in the format listed below, and we can put it in later.  Thanks to all who contribute.  As always, corrections and contributions are always appreciated.

I'll give it a shot.
LEC

8 team conference with two games against each other (14 conference games per season). Three conference games a week, single games home and away on Fridays or a doubleheader on Saturday, travel I'm sure determines that. Conference tournament at the end of the season with all eight teams involved. 
Sat. May 2nd  little east conference playoffs (best of three)  Site of higher seed     
Sun. May 3rd  little east conference playoffs (best of three)  Site of higher Seed 

Thurs. May 7th    little east tournament (double elimination)  Site of No. 1 seed     
Sat.     May 9th    little east tournament (double elimination)  Site of No. 1 seed

DG, thanks for the response.  +1!  The weather and grounds postponements sometimes make it hard to figure out the theory behind the schedule.

I have some basic questions.

In conference play, will schools be scheduled to play home and away single games in mid-week in different weeks?  Is the team given 7 home conference games?  Are all games planned as 9-inning games?

(I noticed all of the 7/7 DH's that are played "up north".  It makes sense.)

So the first weekend of the tourney is best 2-of-3, #8 at #1, #7 at #2, etc., and then 4-team double elimination at the highest remaining seed?

Thanks.

As you look at the table, it is interesting how schools get to play schedules in the time of good weather that each has each spring.

Ralph,
Here's the scoop on the NCAC (North Coast Athletic Conference).

Mideast region.
10 teams divided into 5 teams in east division & 5 teams in west division.

Regular season has 16 games played  - 4 games against each division opponent.  Play 7 inn. DH on Sat. & Sun.

postseason has 2 rounds:
rd. 1 : best 2 of 3 games (9 inn.) - #2 East Division @ #1 West Division
                                                    -  #2 West Division @ #1 East Division

rd. 2 : best 2 of 3 games (9 inn.) between the two winners of round 1. 
I believe location of this round is predetermined at the start of the season. Winner receives the AQ

No problem Ralph, thanks.
In conference play, will schools be scheduled to play home and away single games in mid-week in different weeks?      Yes, LEC games are all initally scheduled for single games on Friday vs one team, then a doubleheader on Saturday vs a different team. 

Is the team given 7 home conference games?     Seems to work out as some getting 6 home games and others getting 8.

Are all games planned as 9-inning games?  Scheduled 9 inning games with a ten run mercy rule only in the second game of a doubleheader.

So the first weekend of the tourney is best 2-of-3, #8 at #1, #7 at #2, etc., and then 4-team double elimination at the highest remaining seed?     Yes.


This is the first year with three scheduled conference games a week.  The conference tournament will now include all eight teams, in past years it was double elimination with only the top six teams playing it out in one week.  This year it will cover two weeks.  So this year it will be a different look I guess, not sure why the change the past three years have been really good tournaments at three different host sites.

Thanks.

As for the LEC, I can see how one would have problems with a 14-game schedule winnowing out the best teams.  In that short season, it makes sense to let them fight it out in the playoffs!

In a 21-game season, one has the credence of winning the head-to-head series when looking at tie-breakers.
