The Division II Baseball Championship commences on Saturday from Grand Prairie, Texas. Eight teams battled through their respective regions to have a chance at the national championship. Neither defending champion Nova Southeastern nor national runner-up Millersville return, which means DII will have a completely new look in the championship series.
This tournament is wide open. Delta State was the only No. 1 seed to advance from its region. Quincy, Lindenwood, St. Thomas Aquinas and UC San Diego all present compelling underdog stories. West Chester and North Georgia are two of the hottest teams in DII. And Colorado Mesa hasn’t stopped hitting the cover off the ball since February.
