Welcome to Episode 48 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. This is the sixth of eight regional preview podcasts in which we break down two regionals paired up for a super regional. This episode focuses on the Wooster and Adrian regionals. Topics include:

  • Wooster regional
    • 1. Wooster (at 0:50)
      • The Fighting Scots are looking to send head coach Tim Pettorini out with another strong postseason run
    • 4. Rochester (at 5:10)
      • The Liberty League champs have tested themselves this season with some strong out-of-conference competition; now they'll go out of region and try to surprise their Mideast opponents
    • 2. Case Western (at 7:47)
      • The Spartans will hardly be afraid of the 1-seed Wooster, and are sure to compete well despite a historically-low win total in the regular season
    • 3. Otterbein (at 11:30)
      • The OAC champs got hot at the right time and will try to carry that momentum into the regional
  • Adrian regional
    • 1. Denison (at 14:37)
      • The Big Red won their first-ever NCAC title but are far from a Cinderella story -- these guys are really good
    • 4. La Roche (at 17:30)
      • Pretty clearly the best 4-seed in the tournament, the Redhawks are no stranger to performing on the postseason stage
    • 2. Heidelberg (at 21:00)
      • The Student Princes are back in the postseason and boast one of the deeper lineups in the country
    • 3. Adrian (at 23:39)
      • The lowest-seeded host in the tournament, the Bulldogs are still one of the most talented teams in the region
  • Our picks to win the two regionals

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