D2 College Baseball – NSIC Stat Comparison

NCAA Baseball Logo

Each week I am providing a comparison of how each Northern Sun Conference college baseball team compared to each other and every other NCAA Division 2 baseball team.  This is using statistics that will be published each week by the NCAA.  NCAA Statistics Site

I’m using a comparison of some primary hitting, pitching, running & fielding statistics for my comparison.  Each number shown is the team’s rank among the 229 Division 2 college baseball teams and the difference in where they compare from last week so you can see if they are improving or declining compared with other teams.


Based on these comparisons we can see –

  • It helps your statistics if you play Minnesota Crookston.  Upper Iowa made strong improvement in every category.
  • SMSU continued to lead the top 2 hitting categories in D2 – they still have a smaller sample size than most and their strength of schedule is questionable but that’s impressive given they played 2 games against Minnesota State.
  • Winona State saw big gains on the pitching front
  • Most NSIC teams dropped in Team Batting Average (except for Upper Iowa as noted, SMSU and Mary/Northern who didn’t play).
  • It’s interesting that there’s not necessarily a correlation between Team ERA and Strikeout ratios.  Duluth is #218 in ERA and #20 in K’s while Augustana is the reverse. 
  • Concordia improved to #1 in the country in fielding but that hasn’t done that much good in winning games lately
