How does the song go...."Two out of three ain't bad....";  it's actually surprising to me how few sweeps there are in conference play.  Every winning pitcher in the series was a senior which is telling.  Big weekend for both programs coming up.

Welcome aboard.

My rule of thumb is your team must sweep the series against the "non-post-season-conference-tournament" teams and then win the 3-games series against the rest, especially when playing at home.  "Defend your house". If you only halve the 2-game or 4-game series, you make no progress.

Hey NESCAC Fans,

It's really unfortunate that we have to do this, but we have less than two weeks to raise a small fortune ($350) in order to renew our ownership of the domain name nothingbutnescac.com so if you've found our coverage of NESCAC sports entertaining, please consider helping us to keep it going for another two years!

Sincerely,

45 runs allowed in 5 games for Bates. Not exactly the ideal start to the NESCAC baseball season.

Now all NESCAC sports have cancelled their spring seasons.  How very sad for all involved.

Grinnell (Iowa) just cancelled all spring sports as well.
Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

Several points to make....as baseball & softball return to the Nescac.
First....the third WES VS AMHERST game will be played at Memorial field in Amherst at 1 pm.  The two teams split the first two games yesterday in Ct.  Hope it will be a sunny day in New England.
Second point.  Bowdoin has cancelled all its remaining games.....no reason given on Bowdoinís site.

I'm pretty sure Bowdoin is not playing baseball at all this season: not included here...Also, Bates may have trouble as they just has the whole campus shut down do to COVID

Amherst wins the NESCAC title against Tufts at Tufts today....wining the double header.  The third game at Tufts is not nescessary :).  Amherst won itís division and Tufts won its division.  Amherstís seniors were all smiles.  First title for the Amherst coach who came from Clark recently.
