    Baseball team has been very good the last 5 years. They will be a very good addition to the PSAC.

    Pretty sure there was some playoff appearances in those years, and we won at least a couple conference tournaments. It's been a good run with McCarthy as the coach.

    The OD game is still not showing on the Shep 2019 football schedule and has not been mentioned at all on the football website. Has anything officially been announced by Shepherd Athletics?

    PSAC is a quality DII conf. They produce good quality teams across the athletic spectrum that are worthy of competing at the National level. Are they the best conf in SR1/Atlantic? I'd say they are equal with the best. Are they as good as their fans think? Not by a long shot!!

    Shepherd's website isn't updated regularly. They still haven't announced the recruiting class that we've been tracking via twitter either.

    Unfortunately, we are underfunded by the state, and understaffed in the athletic dept, that's why we have no up to date information

    I look forward to Shepherd's baseball team being in the PSAC. I have seen them a couple times in regional tourneys. They enter a division that is on a major upswing. WCU and Millersville are nationally ranked just about every year, Shippensburg is always solid and another team or two usually has a really good season (Bloomsburg last year; they single-handily kept us out of regionals, Lock Haven in 2017). The PSAC as a whole is a really good baseball conference. It's just too bad that 90 percent of the league games are played in awful weather.

    Definitely looking for us to get back to the PSAC tournament this year; I remember us losing to Shepherd fairly deep into the regional tournament of 2016. Should make for some great conference battles.

    Not to mention WCU's two national titles (2012 and 2017).

    Seton Hill also has a very strong baseball program.

    I'm not sure IUP even has a team. I think they do. Not sure.

    You just can't say it, so I'll say it for you "Mercyhurst is one of the Elite baseball teams".

    He was referring to strictly the East division that Shepherd is joining.

    I saw the tweet on -

    Shepherd Football
    @SURamsFootball

    BREAKING NEWS: The Shepherd Rams will play Ohio Dominican, at HOME, in the season opener on
    Sept 7th 2019.

    Good info tends to get overlooked since there is a lot of junk on their feed - They really need to clean it up and take some control over the content/tweets/retweets

    Thank you for that reading comprehension, Ram04. I think from my previous posts on here, most people know I follow PSAC baseball as much as PSAC football. I've stated many times how much Seton Hill and Mercyhurst (and, more recently, Gannon) add to the conference in terms of baseball.

    So, for those not paying attention (cough Tony33 cough cough), Mercyhurst is an elite Division II baseball program and, much to my chagrin, has easily bypassed Slippery Rock for the top spot in the PSAC West. As always, I'm looking forward to getting back up to Northwest PA for our series with the Lakers next month.

    Home opener is next Friday vs. rival Cal. I know that part of your post was obviously sarcasm, but I try to promote the conference's baseball teams as much as possible. Maybe someone will see Cal vs. IUP and get out to a game (if it's not 38 degrees with 26 mph wind gusts up on that hill haha)

    I was only able to get to a couple of that year's regional games and the one I saw East Stroudsburg in was a 19-2 win against Chowan. They had a nice run that year, but what impressed me the most was their fans. They had a big turnout for an 11 a.m. game against a pretty bad opponent.

    You aren't lying. I run up there every day. It's like a wind tunnel up there.
