REGULAR SEASON COMES TO END THIS WEEKEND
For a majority of the college baseball world, the 2017 regular season comes to close this weekend. Many teams across the nation are playing for conference champions, tournament seeding and NCAA Tournament bids.
It will be a nostalgic weekend for the University of Buffalo and New York Tech.
Buffalo plays its final ever series against MAC foe Western Michigan in Kalamazoo, Mich. The Bulls announced earlier this season the school would drop the baseball program following the 2017 season. Buffalo plays its final home game today against Niagara, before closing out the season (and program history) this weekend. The final game in program history is Saturday, May 20 at 1 p.m. (ET) in Kalamazoo, Mich.
New York Tech played its final game at the Division I level on Sunday, May 7 with a 6-2 loss to New Jersey Tech. NY Tech is dropping down to NCAA Division II in all sports next season.
St. Peter’s (0-35, 0-21 MAAC) enters the final weekend seeking its first win of the season. The Peacocks close out the year with a three-game Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference series at Manhattan (15-33, 9-12 MAAC) beginning Thursday, May 20. St. Peter’s is trying to avoid becoming the eighth team in NCAA history to have a winless season. Coppin State (0-29) was the last winless team in 2009. Coppin State (0-44) was also winless in 2007. Pittsburgh had three straight winless seasons in 1943, 1944 and 1945, going 0-7 in all three years. Vanderbilt (0-18-1) was winless in 1951 and Norfolk State (0-12) was winless in 1973.
