New England’s Division 3 schools had the most baseball left to play when the 2020 season was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic in March. Many teams played just a handful of games, some had their spring trips shortened or canceled, and a select few hadn’t played a game.
As the spring draws closer, we’re here to highlight some of the players to watch in each of the region’s conferences. These lists include key returnees, players who were off to hot starts or didn’t get to see the field in 2020, and standouts from the summer action that did take place.
Our latest watch list highlights the Great Northeast Athletic Conference. Saint Joseph’s (Maine) was the league’s NCAA postseason representative back in 2019 as it snapped now-first-year Commonwealth Coast Conference member Suffolk’s four-year run of championships after defeating an up-and-coming Johnson & Wales team in the final round of tournament play.
We’ll hope to see these returning players and many more back on the field in 2021.
