Bachman who is pitching for Miami is a stud and likely a top 2 round pick.

Are they allowing fans? It looks like it but I haven’t heard.

An 0-4 weekend for the guys, but they hung tough (4-3, 4-1, 5-0, 5-4) with the team that is probably the class of the MAC this year. I know 8-13 and 4-8 in the MAC isn't great on face value but this team seems to battle and has made some strides over the past season or two. I think they are heading in the right direction and could be one of the better teams in the MAC next year.

Miami is in 1st place in the MAC standings. While a sweep obviously isn't ideal at least it was to the MAC's best team thus far.

Yeah, my only concern are we a one trick pony, our Friday pitcher, Feldman?

He has 4 of our 8 wins.

I agree the team is more competitive. Still a lot of ball to be played.

I haven't been following too closely, but we are on a 5 game win streak. Hammered Toledo on Tuesday and beat BGSU twice today.

RE: Happy Spring to the EMU Baseball Team
Another weekend sweep over BG, with a doubleheader against Toledo coming up on Tuesday (we just beat them 13-2 last week). Team is now up to 17-19 and 11-14 in the MAC. They have won seven straight and are 9-2 in their last 11 games. Hopefully they can keep this momentum going and have a strong finish! I'd love to see them finish with a winning record.

As I understand it, there is NO MAC baseball championship this year. Correct?

Read in the Detnews (you shared the link) that it's a 4 team tournament hosted by the top seed.

I don't think EMU will make it in but it is nice to see them on a winning streak.

RE: Happy Spring to the EMU Baseball Team
Currently 17-19 overall and 11-14 in conference.

In 2020 they were 1-13.

In 2019 they were 11-43 and 6-21 in conference.

So finishing at or above .500 this season would be a major accomplishment.

The good news as many more knowledgeable that I about our baseball program have pointed out this team is still very young.

I don't remember it, but it could have been buried in an article I cited for a different reason.

I don't see any reference on the MAC website.

This is what the NCAA website says (updated last week).

https://www.ncaa.com/live-updates/baseba...qualifiers

"The Big Ten, MAC and Mountain West will not hold conference tournaments this year. Instead, teams that finish first in the regular season standings will automatically qualify for the NCAA tournament."

This is hugely important to us. Gives us a decent shot to get in the big dance every year. Because I don’t see us winning too many regular season titles in the near future.

I don't know if everyone can read the article. The restored championships start in 2021/2 school year.

"Restored championships for 2021-22 will be baseball, softball, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's tennis, field hockey and lacrosse."

"Baseball and softball: four teams, with the highest-seed hosting."

Fun game! Other than the dinger early, EMU was simply not hitting the ball and Toledo was making some great contact, I actually had a bad feeling about the game.

Then came the bottom of the sixth. Play of the game was the perfectly executed suicide squeeze where not only did Bault on third score but also Denton from second base as he was clearly directed to do. It's not something you see in the "home run or strike out" MLB today. As enjoyable as it was, that wind and the prospect of the sun going down compelled me to leave before the second game. Still a lot of fun!

This has been a weird season. Kind of like my Washington Wizards.

Started good and then into the toilet and then a real upward spiral.

Baseball finishes 21-30 overall and 15-25 in conference
Hopefully we go above .500 overall and in conference next year
