    I know this is the Husker baseball board, but I like all baseball and like following all the other in state schools. Nebraska is doing pretty well in the game of baseball.

    Creighton - Preseason pick for Big East title
    UNO - At the top of the Summit League
    Bellevue - Top 10 NAIA and made the world series last year.
    Concordia - Just outside the NAIA top 25 (receiving votes), made regionals last year

    1st pitch can’t get here soon enough...

    I wonder if UNO will ever look into joining a better conference. The Summit League is usually pretty poor. Would be cool to see them in the Missouri Valley or something.

    Yeah I agree.

    Saw on Twitter today that Perfect Game put Concordia at #24 and Bellevue at 11.

    As an alumni of UNK, them dropping baseball still irks me.

    Linking this back to the Huskers, go look at the schedules from the 90’s. They played a lot of the smaller Nebraska NAIA and D2 teams. They were still playing D2 teams into the early 2000’s. Can’t remember if it was last fall, or 2 falls ago Bellevue played Creighton and I think won.

    Wayne State used to be a pretty good D2 program under Manganaro.
