I played a high school game in Duluth two years ago on May 15th and it was 34* and snowing. It's a crap-shoot with weather on Lake Superior....

I predict unseasonably warm weather with blue skies.

While the NCAA weekend looks to to be in the 60s and 70s, this Friday's projected high is 45*.

In a strange quirk, Duluth (Home of St Scholastica) is the site of the Midwest Regional and for the first time this century, St. Scholastica did not qualify.

Call it irony, karma, a quirk of the baseball gods, ... it does free up the St Scholastica staff to conduct the tourney!

True, but the players are done with school and many have left for the summer. Might have been nice to have their help.

Where does loser of game 5 go if they arenít eliminated?

The bracket is slightly altered in that case.

If the loser of Game 5 isn't eliminated there would be 5 teams remaining.  If that happened, I believe it would go like this:

Loser of Game 5 vs. Loser of Game 6
Winner of Game 4 vs. Winner of Game 5
Winner of Game 6 vs. Winner of Game 7

Winner of Game 8 vs. Loser of Game 9
Winner of Game 9 vs. Winner of Game 10

 ;)  Rest assured! All-Star is equipped for such contingencies!  +1!

We could be seeing one of the d3baseball.com "favorites" lose their opening game of the Midwest Regional!!!

Concordia-Chicago currently trails Bethany Lutheran 8-3 in the seventh inning...

Edit:  After seeing Concordia cut the deficit to 8-5, Bethany tacked on two runs in the 8th inning to regain five run lead of 10-5.

Edit 2: Concordia scratches across three runs in the Bottom of the 8th inning to make it 10-8.

Bethany keeping the pressure on Concordia, as they have scored four runs (all earned) on seven hits off of Concordia's top relief pitcher Mike Formella and take a 12-8 lead into the Bottom of the 9th inning.....

Edit: Concordia has loaded the bases with nobody out in the Bottom of the 9th inning as Bethany makes a call to the bullpen.

Edit 2:  A hit batter and two run single make it 12-11, and still nobody out....  So do you bunt runners over for first out of the inning or force Bethany to try and get three outs on their own?
