Welcome to Episode 37 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. After completing our eight regional previews, this is our first podcast of the 2019 regular season, as 90% of D-III teams have started their seasons and we finally have some results to discuss! Our show this week is broken into a few segments, as follows:

  • Top 25 chat (at 1:30)
    • Checking in on the dropouts: Misericordia, Babson, Oswego State
    • Welcoming the newcomers: Methodist, Birmingham-Southern, Wheaton (Mass.)
    • Piedmont is extremely fun and also really good (at 6:30)
  • Rapid fire DO YOU BELIEVE IN THEM? with a few teams off to hot starts (at 10:00)
    • Concordia (Texas)
    • Huntingdon
    • Johns Hopkins
    • Washington College
    • Kean
    • Concordia-Chicago
  • Notable individual performers so far (at 23:12)
    • Matt Steindorf and Connor Bailey at Willamette
  • We Are Just Excited To Get Outside (24:50)
    • Discussing the extremely understandable but also hilarious nature of being excited to play baseball outside
  • Wooster + WashU update (they're our schools which means we get to talk about them more, sorry!)
    • The Scots are only a few games in but Jordan is still optimistic and excited about the rest of Wooster's Florida trip (at 30:40)
    • Jake is hyped about DA BEARS after their hot start despite their hideous 7-2-1 record (ties are just so ugly) and freshman shortstop Caleb Durbin looks like the real deal (at 32:18)

...then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
