Division 1 college baseball is back! Eleven New England programs uncapped their 2023 seasons on Friday and Saturday as part of a packed weekend of baseball.
Three clubs opened on a positive note by claiming their first series, with one making an early statement at the plate against a power-conference opponent. Sacred Heart played its first games under a new coach, while numerous freshmen made an immediate impact for teams across the region.
This season-opening edition of New England Baseball Journal’s Monday roundup covers all of that and the rest of the regional action from the past weekend.
Don’t forget to catch up on all of NEBJ’s preview coverage in our Division 1 Hub, which includes links to expansive team previews, the All-NEBJ team, and NEBJ Preseason Top 10. Six more teams -- including the region’s four Ivy League schools and D1 newcomer Stonehill -- will make their season debuts next weekend.
