Ralph,

Great work on the conference summary.  For the CCIW, it's Saturday DH/Sunday single game (except for Wheaton, which does not play on Sundays), with some mid-week singles/DH's necessary.  All games are 9's as of this season.

EDIT:  Thanks and +1!   :)  I have changed the table.

Thanks for the +1.  One minor correction, however: given the crowded conference schedule, teams can't fit all CCIW games into seven weekends.  Each team is required to play some mid-week conference games some time during the season.  For example, North Park hosted Carthage for a doubleheader on a Tuesday afternoon (noon start), then traveled to Kenosha for a single Wednesday afternoon contest the following week.  The CCIW rule on make-ups, as I understand, is that the teams must play on the first available day during the upcoming week.  This has become a real challenge, given the cold and rainy spring we've experienced.  North Park hosted Augustana on Saturday, and we got in the first game before lightning and rain halted play.  Sunday was a wash-out.  On Monday, Augustana had already committed to a make-up game vs. Carthage, which, not surprisingly, got rained out.  On the next available day -- Tuesday -- Augustana came back to Chicago for a night DH -- the first pitch was at 6 PM, and the final out of game two was at 11 PM.

Thanks.  As I understand you, the schedule for the CCIW has mid-week games already listedwhen the schedule is released in January prior to the start of the season and before the make-up games start piling up?

I believe that is right.  The challenge faced by CCIW coaches is to fit in the rest of the non-conference schedule, which is either mid-week once conference games start, or in the week(s) prior to the start of conference play.  North Park, for example, had six games versus NathCon teams (one Saturday DH and the others during the week) before playing CCIW rival Millikin.  We are still short two games because of a DH rainout at the start of the season.

SCIAC has changed its format to a 3-game Friday single home then Saturday Away DH for the first time thru the schedule.  Later in the season, the teams play a round robin of single games.  That makes 28 conference games.

Tip of hat to LA Mike.

NWC  has changed format back to 3-game series after a 2-year experiment.

Linfield's schedule only shows a 32-game season, reflecting the loss of one game against each of the 8 NWC foes.

The North Eastern Athletic Conference and the North Atlantic Conference have signed a multi-sport affiliation agreement to preserve access to the AQ  for the 2 conferences in several sports.

The impact on baseball is that these two conferences will play division games and then send the post-season tourney winner to the playoffs as the AQ.

The East Division has the NAC teams:  Castleton St. Husson, 4th-year provisional Lyndon State, ME-Farmington and Thomas.

The West Division has the NEAC teams:  Cazenovia, Keuka, Keystone, PSU-Abington (1st-year provisional), PSU-Berks, PSU-Harrisburg (4th-year provisional), SUNY-Cobleskill (2nd-year provisional) and SUNYIT.

Correction:  Immaculata University (Colonial States Athletic Conference) added baseball in 2009.

The CSAC had seven members in 2009 and will have 7 in 2010.

Ralph, Osh, RSSmith, others,

Just ran across below web sit today.  Looks to be similar to Boyd's but much more organized.

Anyone familiar with it.

Stealing a little info from the USA SOUTH website and the USA SOUTH message board on here....Piedmont College in Demorest, GA has officially announced their acceptance to the USA SOUTH starting 2012-2013 school year. USA SOUTH keeps conference automatic bid with the addition. Maryville College and LaGrange College are also considering a move to the USA SOUTH.

Update of this topic covers the basic data for the conferences in D-III for the 2011 season. (In progress.)


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.

The NATHC plays no 7/7 DH's. They are all 9/9.
