No idea. I imagine anyone with a P by their name that's still on the team made the postseason roster.

Looks like Keenan White of Wooster is going to join IWU's Jeff Johnson in picking up his first loss of the season as he has been tagged for 12 runs and he didn't make it out of the 6th.  Although, 7 of those 12 runs have been unearned as Wooster has committed 3 costly errors on the day?!   ???

Wooster was victimized by the big inning as they've been living on the big inning over their current win streak.  They're going to need a couple of big innings to get back in this one...

Well, nice effort Wooster.  Special kudos to the pitcher that got nobody out and hit three guys.  If you didn't want to make the trip, you should have told the coach.

WOO boo, you are unreal!!! First you bitch about The NCAC tourney being played in Chilli, then bitch that the regionals are being played at Rose Hulman. Do you want every game to be played in your backyard so you don't have to get off the porch????
Now, you blast the Scots for getting blown out in their first game. Do you think they went out to get an ass kicking? I think not but, that happens sometimes in baseball.
If you feel the need to be bitter about everything, take your retirement money to a casino, play the slots, and bitch that the machine is not paying off.

Thomas More certainly shut everyone up that was talking about how they didn't belong.

As for the two tournament sites, do you not understand that all of the teams, and the fan bases, would be better served if they were geographically centered?  Sure makes sense to me.

As for blasting the Scots, I think Thomas More did a far better job than I did.  Likely that Coach Pettorini did also.  Try not to be bitter about other people's opinions.  Perhaps a trip to a casino would help you.

The best experience for the participants (on and off the field) IMO is more important than geography.

And Terre Haute, IN fits that bill?   :P

Never been to the facility, but it's generally gotten good reviews and has undergone continual improvements. I have very little doubt in Coach Jenkins' ability to run a fine tournament. The only thing I don't know is the quality of the pre-tournament events for the players and the community support for the event. That's where I don't think you can beat Marietta. Marietta's also probably the best destination town of the places ever likely to be considered -- , but Marietta can't have it every year (I suppose, I don't know why not though because it seems like Whitewater does).

I think the Series should never have left Marietta, but since it did, I have to say Appleton is a great site and wouldn't want to see it move except back to Marietta (which isn't likely). In the same vein, if the regional can't or isn't at Marietta, I have no problem with Rose-Hulman as a choice.

If someone has an idea for a better site than these two, they should bid with and then we'll see if the powers that be agree. I will say I don't think Chillicothe is any more than Canton was. There is one place I'm very surprised has never been bid (or I assume hasn't) but I don't want to give anyone any ideas for somewhere to have it other than Marietta so I'll keep it to myself. :)

5-1 IL Wesleyan after 7.  Feel bad for Clarke.  1-1 game after 6, gets the lead off guy out and then loads the bases in the 7th, gets relieved and the pen doesn't record the 2nd out until all 3 of his runners scored.  Rough trip to IN for the bullpen and the bats.

Bids for most (99-ish percent) NCAA tournaments open in mid-July. The NCAA hopes the new process will result in more institutions bidding to host. I do too. I have no doubt that the current hosts are great, but we could have used more bids to spread out the sites this baseball season.

Well, whatever went wrong with Marietta in the OAC tournament...safe to say it has been addressed and corrected.

9-0 after 2, just beating the ball all over the yard after jumping on a pretty good pitcher from Behrend last night.

Can't wait for tomorrow night's game... should be a good between Manchester and Marietta.

No better time than tomorrow for Manchester to get their first head-to-head victory against the Express.
