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 series begins with the NESCAC, which was one of the nation’s first conferences to halt athletic competition. Just three of the league’s 10 programs had played more than five games, while Tufts and Wesleyan didn’t get to take the field at all.
We’ll hope to see these players on the field in 2021.
