2018 D3 Brackets

Rowan's number 1 looked like he could cruise upper 80's and reach back for 90 plus...PG profile had him low 90's and that was a few years ago.  Misericordia looks a little on the small side, but they are scrappy as can be when they play...executed a perfect suicide squeeze yesterday against #5 R-Macon.  I was asked the other day if the teams were any good (in the D3 world series)...i told them to be 1 of the 8 out of 350 plus schools to make it, you sure as hell have to be good.  Not sure why everyone looks down upon it, but from what i can see it looks like excellent baseball.

It's a little early to talk about an all Texas D3CWS, but it could happen. I have to be rooting for TLU as they are from my son's former conference and are playing for a teammate who was killed in a tragic car accident last year. #tlubaseball &  #KB4 on twitter.

Because people are stupid and make assumptions.... just saying.

Rowan’s 3rd pitcher was a redshirt at Alabama in 2015 and they aren’t there, and they didnt finish 2nd or 3rd in the regional.

My D3 son is 5' 10" and also one of the shortest amoung the team. Also have a friend whose son is on a Mid tier D3 in So. Cal. Was told they have 3 guys throwing 88-90. Saw some D3 teams this year that could challenge some D1's i've seen 

Well, to be fair, SoCal is far ahead of many states when it comes to baseball. Same with GA, TX, FL, to name a few. There are some excellent D3 schools(academically) up north who struggle to have find  pitchers  who "live" in the mid 80's. Many of those schools would be beaten by the best HS teams.
