Northern Sun & College Baseball Updates – Thanksgiving Edition

Okay, Thanksgiving was really yesterday but I was busy eating turkey.  Now with a day off it’s time to update a few items of interest for the Northern Sun Conference and college baseball as a whole.

A lot of the recent news in college baseball revolves around recruiting news as teams are announcing the signing of players during the NCAA’s early signing period.  Last week I posted 5 press releases from Northern Sun teams that had announced signings – Northern Sun Fall 2009 Signings

  • A couple days after that blog entry I was sent the press release from Minnesota State.  MN State Announces seven 2010-11 Signings  The school has been right up there with St. Cloud State as having some of the largest and most high profile recruiting success lately.  Zach Bohar, Ronnie Donley, Dalton Grove, Jason Hoppe, TJ Larson, Tyler Ockuly and Parker Sullivan will be suiting up for the Mavericks during the 2011 season.
  • College Baseball Insider also has done some tracking of overall Division 2 College Baseball fall signings and although they are woefully behind the announcements it’s interesting to see what other schools are adding to their rosters – Division 2 Early Signings
  • Baseball America continues to be a premier site for baseball as a whole and while the majority of their college baseball content is premium Aaron Fitt had a recent column answering Division 1 college baseball recruiting questions – College Recruiting Chat
  • In addition to following Upper Midwest D2 baseball I’ve long been a fan of the University of Minnesota (my alma mater) and their baseball team.  Kendall Rogers from Rivals just published a positive outlook about the team, although I’m a bit more skeptical after the Gophers lost 3 of their top hitters and 2 of their top pitchers.  Five Keys for Minnesota Baseball
  • Finally, I like to check the NCAA site and while this has nothing to do with college baseball, per se, I see that the Northern Sun Conference has been awarded $10,000 to potentially add new members to the Conference.  This has the potential to be something to keep track of in future years.  D2 Committee Approves Membership Grants
