How ya like dem apples, 'Meister? ;)

 

The big rematch is tomorrow.

If the quins can secure a win in each of their remaining 20 games they can finish the season at .500 ball.

RATS

221st ranked Pitt eeks out a 16 to 6 win over the quins.  So much for a .500 season.

One of my students recently told me that they were offered by UA to play baseball.  He was bummed because he said he'd much rather play D-I MAC baseball; but already made the commitment to another school (not D-I MAC).  Apparently there is a significant $-fee to pay in order to decommit from a program...who would have known?  Based on his home situation/background decommiting is not in the cards.

At any rate, I wanted to mention this because I talked to him for awhile and it kinda blew my mind a little bit how knowledgable he was about Akron's baseball situation and it showed me that local kids do pay attention to our baseball program.  Kinda got me a little excited about Akron Baseball for the first time...like ever.  Just thought I'd pass that good vibe along.  :)

Just throwing this out there for you to think about.  I’ve been at the MAC Baseball Championships the last three years, and if you like college baseball, it is a blast.  Played at Sprenger Stadiumin Avon Lake (was All-Pro Freight Stadium before name change) which is only a little over an hour from campus.  The stadium is super fan friendly, with several micro brews on tap and high top tables and chairs on the mezzanine.  Kinda strange to watch ball on a fully artificial surface, even the mound, but still fun.  With Buffalo dropping out the new format is better, with 2 games the first day, then 3 the next two, and the Saturday and Sunday dependent on outcome.  It’ll give everyone a chance to see what we’ll be up against in 2020.  It’s even worth an overnight stay in the area with a HUGE number of pubs in the area after-game.  The staff and the MAC do a great job of this one.

 

Wednesday thru Saturday/Sunday May 22-26.

Did it make the needle on your bullshit meter spike, like it did mine, when he told you about having to pay a significant $-fee to decommit?

I had the same reaction as Zipmeister....I have scoured the internet and talked to a few coaches of other ncaa sports, and can't find anything anywhere about a fee to decommit, let alone a significant one...anyone else know anything??

That's not a thing. Maybe indirectly as there's less scholarship money available later in the game but yeah, no.
