And what is up with the America East tournament? Every other conference in America doesn't allow for bye's for their top teams.

They should go back to old format. #6 vs. #1, #5 vs. #2, and #4 vs. #3.

The format never was what you listed above. It used to be a four-team double elimination tournament. And what is wrong with giving the top two teams a bye? There's no other way that a six-team tournament would work.

Is it ironic that Hartford ends up being sent to the Stetson regional where Coach Trimper is coaching. It is always tough for the AE teams to jump up a level (I realize Stonybrook had a run a few years ago) but this will be a tough task for the Hawks.

Hartford went to Corvalis earlier this year and lost 4 very competitive games against Oregon St. Also had UConn on their schedule , another tournament team. While I don't think they get out of this regional, I don't think 2 and a BBQ is guaranteed either. Could be a very competitive region.

I have to agree with Maine Jeff regarding questioning how the baseball team trains. The number of injuries from groins, hamstrings, shoulders, and elbows seems very large.

The one thing I really cannot comprehend is how this Division 1 team does not have a qualified pitching coach dedicated to the training and development of these throwing athletes. I read the BDN online and the posts on this site regarding the walks, hit batters, and inconsistent results from pitchers. How about giving the pitchers a full time qualified pitching coach, and let us see if the outcome is different. I bet it will be for the positive.

I looked on the UMaine website, and the last qualified pitching coach was JP Pyne in 2014-2015. In fact, Maine has had five different coaches working with the pitchers since the 2013-2014 season. Jason Spaulding (’13-’14), Pyne (’14-’15), Trimper (’15-’16), Scott Heath (’16-’17), and currently Derba. No wonder these pitchers are inconsistent. How about funding the program with a qualified dedicated pitching coach for these athletes.

Go Blue!

Three UMaine Baseball Players Earn NEIBA Division I All-New England Honors

BABSON PARK, Mass. - The University of Maine baseball team had three representatives honored by the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) when it released its Division I All-New England teams on Tuesday. Junior Danny Casals earned a spot on the first team while classmate Jeremy Pena was on the second team and senior Christopher Bec earned a spot on the third team.

Casals started in 51 games as a junior, playing primarily at third base while also seeing significant time at second. He led the Black Bears with a .597 slugging percentage, .407 on-base percentage, 49 RBIs, 14 home runs, 32 walks and 108 total bases, with his home runs and RBIs leading the conference. Additionally, his slugging percentage was third overall in the conference and his .304 average was fourth on the team. Casals had 17 multi-hit games this season, including three multi-home run games. In addition to being the first time since 2010 that a Black Bear had double-digit home runs, it marked the first time a Maine player hit at least 13 home runs in a season since Jon Hambelton in the 2001 season.

Pena led Maine this year in triples (5) and runs scored (51) and was second in hits (66), batting average (.308) and on-base percentage (.393). Pena's 51 runs scored not only led the Black Bears but also placed him second in the America East while his hits placed him sixth in the conference. His 19 multi-hit games on the year led Maine while he also had a team-best 13-game hitting streak during the season. With a triple against UAlbany on May 11, Pena became the first Maine player to hit at least five triples in a season since the 2011 season. The short stop - who also added 10 stolen bases, good for ninth in the conference - was the lone Maine player to start all 54 games that the team played this season.

Bec finished the regular season with a team-high .315 average. He was second for Maine in slugging percentage (.539), third in on-base percentage (.379) and hits (56). Bec, who also knocked in 27 RBIs, led Maine with 16 stolen bases on the year while his .547 slugging-percentage was fifth-best in the conference. In addition to being the lone catcher in the top 10 in the league in stolen bases in 2018, this was the second consecutive season he reached 15 stolen bases. At UMass on May 2, he finished 5-for-6 at the plate, knocking in six runs and scoring five on the strength of three home runs, one double and one single. It marked the first time that a Maine player hit three home runs in a game since 20120.

Last week, Bec and Casals were unanimously chosen for the America East First Team while Pena was voted to the conference second team. Additionally, Casals and Bec were named to the America East All-Tournament Team on Saturday
