Pat and Jim, the top six teams are qualifying the for WIAC tournament this year, which is incorrectly stated on the d3b Playoff Central page.

https://wiacsports.com/news/2021/3/17/2021-wiac-baseball-preview.aspx

4v5 and 3v6 on May 19 for single games.

Then double elimination at UWW on 21st and 22nd.

Unless, maybe you all have heard different from the league, please correct me.

Is this the best pointer offense since Jordan Zimmermanís freshman year or is the competition not all that great? Sure looks like Simmons, Nelson, and Comer are one of the top 2-4 hitters in the nation.

Eau Claire gets their first WIAC win against someone other than Finlandia, and they do it in stunning fashion!

Not only did they defeat Whitewater, who was recently ranked the #1 team in the Midwest Region, they did it via the "mercy rule" winning 11-1 in seven innings.  To top it off, they defeated previously unbeaten Westin Muir, who entered the contest with a perfect 7-0 record.

To say this result was the most surprising of the 2021 WIAC Baseball season might be a bit of an understatement!

It could go deep into tiebreakers between Point and Whitewater if they have the same results on Saturday for one and two seeds. They split 2-2 in conference play.

A lot to figure out on Saturday night for seeds 1 and 2 and seeds 3 and 4.

Anyway you slice it Oshkosh and La Crosse will host games next Wednesday, Platteville and Stout will play on the road next Wednesday, Point and Whitewater receive byes, Eau Claire and Finlandia will not make the postseason tournament.

One things for sure I wonít ever look at d3 baseball top 25 again zero credibility not having UWSP in the top 25 when their in first in the best conference in country and split with the supposed number 4 team. That was my laugh for the week Iíd like to know a team that can put a lineup out like Points itís not happening.

There wasn't a WIAC preseason poll, so I'm not sure where you are getting that from....

As far as "best team in the WIAC", since they are tied with Whitewater, couldn't the Warhawks also say the same thing?

UWSP isn't the best team in the WIAC, that still belongs to Whitewater.  Yes, they are tied in the standings but UWSP can't compete with the pitching depth that Whitewater has.  Lets not forget that Whitewater is 4-0 over the Pointers in non-conference matchups.

With that being said, I am definitely pleasantly surprised with this years team considering it is mostly made up of holdovers from Jirschele's poor teams.  The last full season in 2019, a lot of these same players managed to lose a game to Finlandia.  Richter definitely deserves Coach of the Year and Jirschele deserves more criticism than I even give him.
