    As the designated home team for this game, by rule, Central Oklahoma has their choice of dugouts. Baseball etiquette says you don't pick the host team's dugout. I guess the Central Oklahoma coach wants to play head games, because he picked UCM's dugout. The broadcaster said he had never seen that happen. That should piss off the Mules and give them added incentive to win game one. Should the Mules lose game one, they will be the designated home team for game two. I'm sure the first thing the UCM coach will do is eject the Okies from the Mule's normal home dugout.

    Any Mules fans attending the game while monitoring this message board?

    Had UCM been the visitor in earlier games?
    There have been some regionals that ESU went to where the NCAA rep has enforced that the home team is in the third base dugout no matter what. Makes it a little strange when the home team is normally in the first base dugout.

    When the Mules played CentralOK on Friday, the Mules had the home dugout as the visiting team.

    Several years back, I was sitting behind a player (and his dad) who waiting to play after the Mules game. He was happy to find out they had the 3rd base dugout for the next game because it meant they had a bathroom. Maybe CentralOK just wanted a bathroom.

    This is so funny.... during the game, I had a quick conversation with a Central Oklahoma player in the public restroom area. I told him I was surprised that he was using the concession stand restroom when Central Oklahoma (the designated home team for game one) had picked the UCM host team dugout. He said that UCM was pissed and retaliated by locking the dugout door to the UCM clubhouse restroom.

    LMAO

    Comments on the Regional:

    CentralMO only trailed for 2 innings all weekend. They never trailed in either of the first 2 games. The Mules scored the first 4 runs in the Southern game. Ben Kelsch (6-3) tossed a complete game in the 8-1 win. They also scored the first 2 runs in Friday's game against CentralOK. Luke Lucas (6-0) gave up only 1 run in 7 innings and the Mules won 6-1. The bad weather hit in the bottom of the first on Saturday and Mules starter Mason Green (8-0) didn't handle it well hitting the first batter and walking the next. A wild pitch moved the runners to 2nd & 3rd as lightning stopped the game. When the game was resumed on Sunday, Green got the next 3 hitters to ground out but both of the runners scored. That was the only time the Mules trailed all weekend. The Mules regained the lead in the top of the 3rd and never trailed again.

    The star of the weekend for the Mules was lead off hitter Mason Janvrin. Janvrin had 3 hits against Southern on Thursday, 4 against CentralOK on Friday and 3 more against CentralOK on Sat/Sun. His 4th hit on Friday was his 100th of the season, he is only the 3rd Mule to reach 100 in a single season. His lead off hit on Saturday moved him past Chris Umphres into 2nd place with 101 hits. 2 more hits on Sunday have him one hit short of the Mules single season record of 104 held by Sittichoke Huckuntod in 1990.

    I'm not familiar with Sittichoke Huckuntod. I'm curious about his hame, is he native american or from another country? Also, what position did he play and any other information?

    Mules are definitely playing there best baseball of the year and I like their chances against Augustana. I hope a lot of UCM fans show up in Sioux Falls to support the Mules. I'm in KC on business this week and wish I could hang around and go to Sioux Falls, but I have to return home to San Diego. I'll be following the action over the internet.

    GO MULES (or as my wife likes to call them..... the Muu-leys)

    "Choke" was born in Thailand. Here is a link to his UCM Hall of Fame page:
    https://ucmathletics.com/hof.aspx?hof=160

    His .403 batting average might have been 2nd when he was inducted but it's 6th (I believe) now. Everyone above him played only 2 years for the Mules. He still has the most hits for any Mule that played less than 4 seasons and the stolen base record, I believe, still stands. I know it stands at UCM, I'm not sure about the MIAA.

    LMAO Sitting in the stands that day was like driving at night in snow. The puffs from the cottonwood trees was really flying.

    You can't image how bad it was watching on (tv) internet, especially the view from the centerfield camera. At first I thought it must be a technical glitch as the "floating chicken feathers" seemed to keep repeating the same pattern. It was beyond weird and very distracting.....lol.
