Welcome to Episode 47 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the fifth of eight regional preview podcasts in which we break down two regionals paired up for a super regional. This episode focuses on the UW-Whitewater and Concordia-Chicago regionals. Topics include:

  • UW-Whitewater regional
    • 1. Webster (at 1:01)
      • The Gorloks won't be hosting unlike the last few years, but a strong defense and excellent pitching staff earned them the 1-seed
    • 4. Bethany Lutheran (at 6:20)
      • This squad has the highest team ERA of any team in the postseason -- luckily, they absolutely mash too
    • 2. UW-Whitewater (at 9:57)
      • Another supremely talented Warhawks team will look to have a better regional showing than the disappointing performance in 2018
    • 3. North Central (Ill.) (at 15:11)
      • The CCIW champs are one of the more experienced 3-seeds in the whole tournament
  • Concordia-Chicago regional
    • 1. Concordia-Chicago (at 18:10)
      • The Cougars have stars up and down the lineup, but one of them might just the National Player of the Year
    • 4. Buena Vista (at 23:10)
      • Fresh off an ARC title, the Beavers will look to upset the powerhouse hosts CUC
    • 2. Baldwin Wallace (at 26:00)
      • Possibly the last team in at-large, the Yellow Jackets and their strong pitching staff will be heading out of region to try and make a postseason run
    • 3. St. John's (at 29:20)
      • The Johnnies took care of business in the MIAC this year and bring a balanced attack to the CUC regional
  • Our picks to win the two regionals

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