Great! I just hope it becomes standard for the games to be viewable throughout the season

 

The more you watch the longer your life will seem.  Same effect as being in prison.

Go Zips.

Against a D1 school too. A nice surprise.
 

They have clinched a better record than the 2019 Zips football program.

Tough 1-0 loss to Urbana today at home. The Zips pitchers are lights out, but the bats are asleep.

MLB Network is showing the 1990 World Series with the Reds' #17 getting a key hit.

 

Not particularly exciting, but for now it's all we got.

Spring sports athletes are getting an extra year of eligibility because of the cancellations.

 

That doesn’t get immediately affect the Zips since IIRC there are no seniors on the team. 
 

but it will give the coaching staff an extra year to develop the players. Can’t hurt.

might be some senior transfers out there. Schools don't have the give the same aid they gave this year so some may be on their way out if the money doesn't work out

We lost one of our prior commits to Jordan Banfield & Oakland.

 

 

Who can really blame the kid (Oakland was the first D1 school in Michigan to add esports as a varsity sport)?

Additionally, the Oakland baseball team won 11 of their 48 games in their most recent full season and finished two games ahead of Youngstown State who finished last in the Horizon League only 13.5 games out of first.

Our pitching coach left for Oakland too. I know of at least one player transferring out.. this isn't a great development

Not like this team was going to compete in the MAC. In the words of former Pirate's GM Branch Rickey, "We finished last with you, we can finish last without you."

They had a lot of free time to talk to the Oakland people, the first weekend of the season.

 

Does anyone know if teh change to the baseball schedule includes only in-conference games ala MBKB?

It looks like we lost a player to another powerhouse team. BUGS ended the latest (shortened) season with a better record than the Zips; 2-11 versus 1-12. They finished the 2019 season in 8th place in the MAC with 8 wins in 26 conference games, and 16 wins out of all 49 games in which they participated.

I wouldn’t put it past the Zips being able to match or surpass that record if we ever get a full season in because with the exception of PCCC, the Sweaters, Testicle Tech, and CMU, MAC baseball sucks the big one.
