Welcome to Episode 45 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the third of eight regional preview podcasts in which we break down two regionals paired up for a super regional. This episode focuses on the Chapman and Texas Lutheran regionals. Topics include:

  • Chapman regional (best-of-5)
    • 1. Chapman (at 0:50)
      • The offense is mildly underwhelming -- fortunately, the pitching staff is ridiculously amazing
    • 2. Whitman (at 5:31)
      • The Blues won the NWC for the first time in decades -- now they'll take on one of the best teams in the country
  • Texas Lutheran regional
    • 1. Trinity (Texas) (at 9:00)
      • The Tigers are back in the postseason where they belong -- now it's time to perform like the elite team they are
    • 4. Franklin (at 11:57)
      • Flying down to Texas is a tough assignment for the Grizzlies, but they might just have the offense to compete with anyone
    • 2. Texas Lutheran (at 14:21)
      • The 2018 national runner-ups will be hosting, and will surely be eager to perform well -- especially with their conference rival Trinity coming to town
    • 3. Concordia (Texas) (at 17:22)
      • The Tornados have two aces and a stellar offense, and just might have the recipe to win this regional as a three-seed
  • Our picks to win the two regionals

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