Well, just getting this one up and out there as we're just 11 days away from Opening night, 2018!

I'll try to post as much information previewing key teams as we prepare for a new season!

Somewhere in this thread something should be said about our "other" local team you do not hear much about. That was because they were not competing with the big boys for so long. But now the UCSD Tritons have joined the Big West and Division I baseball! Well it will not really be until 2020, but I am pretty sure it was not posted about here. So we will have 3 DI teams to watch with some pretty good teams coming into town! They are excited not just about the better competition they will get (I am excited to see it, too) but also about how their recruitment will go since they lose "brainy" student-athletes to Cal & Stanford.

This news was announced in November and this article is from the Union Tribune

Thanks for the reminder! Of course I knew it, but the article explains in detail why this is important.

First pitch coming up from the campus of the University of San Diego!
