It always sucks to have it decided off the field. Congrats to JHU... good luck in the NCAA post-season.

Yea...I know it is kind of unfair, especially considering there is more than a week to make it up....

But that being said, Hopkins won their first two games, including a win over the runner up, F&M, plus, Hopkins had to be beat twice on the final day.....

The rules are clearly stated before each season begins. I hate to see seasons end that way, but each conference sets up its own set of rules for determining the winner. Rules are rules.

Same thing happened in 1999 to one of the teams advancing to the World Series.....there was so much rain that year, the Regional couldn't be finished in time and the highest remaining seed advanced.  I think it was William Patterson in the mid-atlantic regional.

Must have been one of Big Poppa's Minnesota teams! He might have even served on the "Rules" committee ;D

I live in Minnesota, but my only allegiance is to Carthage. Blood is thicker than water.

This... is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball.  "There are three types of baseball players: those who make things happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happened."
