This spring has been a long road “home” for the Southern New Hampshire University baseball team.
After having just one practice and playing a single Northeast 10 Conference series on their true home field all season due to grown sinkholes, the Penmen find themselves back in Manchester on the cusp of their ultimate goal.
This weekend’s home away from home is Delta Dental Stadium, the home of the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats. There, SNHU and Molloy will play a best-of-three East Super Regional series for the right to move on to the Division 2 College World Series in Cary, N.C.
“We’ve been getting better every week,” SNHU’s 14th-year head coach Scott Loiseau (Worcester, Mass.) said ahead of Friday’s series opener between the East Region’s top two seeds and the champions of the NE10 and East Coast Conferences, respectively.
