Following NCAC cross-divisional series last weekend, the field is set for the 2013 NCAC Baseball Tournament, which will be played at VA Memorial Stadium in Chillicothe, Ohio, this weekend, May 9-10. Please note, due to graduation conflicts on Saturday and Sunday, the tournament schedule has been adjusted to utilize the entire day Thursday and Friday.
In cross divisional series action last weekend, Allegheny (11-7, 24-14), Denison (13-6, 25-14), Oberlin (11-8, 21-19) and Wooster (15-3, 29-10) all advanced to this weekend's four-team tournament. Allegheny took two-of-three from DePauw (9-10, 17-23), Denison swept Kenyon (7-12, 20-17), Oberlin took two-of-three from Wittenberg (9-10, 23-16) and Wooster won all three contests against Ohio Wesleyan (8-11, 18-19). In the final series of the weekend to determine ninth and 10th place in the final NCAC standings, Wabash (8-11, 16-23) won two-of-three against Hiram (3-16, 15-22) in Ohio.
Wooster, which has won 14 NCAC titles all-time, will open play in the tournament on Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m. against Oberlin. The Yeomen are making their first-ever appearance in the NCAC Baseball Tournament. In the other opening round game on Thursday, Allegheny will take on Denison at 1:00 p.m.
The double elimination tournament continues on Thursday afternoon with the winners of Thursday's first two contests squaring off at 4:00 p.m. with a slot in the championship round on the line, while the losers of Thursday's first two games will meet on Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. in an elimination game. Please note, no game will be started after 10:00 p.m. on Thursday night.
The final slot in the championship round will be determined on Friday morning at 10:00 am with the winner of game four taking on the loser of game three. The first championship game will be played on Friday at 2:00 p.m. with game seven scheduled for 5:00 p.m., if necessary.
Please note, should only three games be played on Thursday and game seven would put a team in position to play four games on Friday, the tournament committee will meet to set an alternate date and time for the contest based on which teams are remaining.
Wooster leads the league with 14 NCAC titles, while Ohio Wesleyan has captured 10 conference crowns, Allegheny four and Wabash one. The only shared title came in 1985 when the Fighting Scots and Gators shared the crown in the NCAC's inaugural season.
TICKETS: The prices for admission to the 2013 NCAC Baseball Tournament are $7 for adults and $3 for students and children. Each ticket is good for one day of admission at the tournament.
