Baseball Earns No. 3 Seed In AMCC Tournament
FROSTBURG, Md. -
The Frostburg State baseball team has earned the No. 3 seed in the 2007 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Tournament despite finishing in a three-way tie for the regular-season championship with La Roche and Medaille.
Due to tiebreaker criteria such as head-to-head record, FSU (25-13, 13-5) snagged the third seed while LAR (23-15, 13-5) captured the title and will host the final round of the tournament May 11-13. This marks the third-straight season that Frostburg State has won or had a share of the AMCC regular-season title. MED (14-19, 13-5) earned the second seed and received a first-round bye.
FSU will start the defense of its 2006 tournament title by hosting No. 6 seed Pitt-Greensburg, Saturday, in the opening round for a best-of-three series starting at 10:00 am. UPG (16-17, 10-8) missed the postseason last year after earning a spot in the tournament in 2005.
FSU/UPG split the regular-season meeting. Frostburg State lost game one 2-1, but rebounded for a 6-0 shutout in game two.
In the other first round matchup, No. 5 Pitt-Bradford will travel to No. 4 Penn State Behrend. The two squads split during the regular season as PSB won the opener 4-0 and lost the nightcap 5-4.
