Bonus Baseball!

The Columbia baseball team, 1914

The 3-time defending Ivy champion Columbia Baseball team has added a home double header to the schedule as the Lions prepare for next week's NCAA Regional playoffs.

The Patriot League champ Lehigh Mountain Hawks will be the opponents as they also need a little tune up before they head to their regional.

This is a great chance for fans to see the team in a relaxed setting. I also expect just about everyone to get some chance to play.

Columbia will learn who and where it's playing in the regionals when that info is announced on Memorial Day. The first regional round game will be on Thursday May 28th.

so far, no announcement that Ivy Digital covering it; first game starts at 12:30, both 9-inning games.

My guess is that the pitchers will be on a low pitch count. Maybe 30 pitches each for the starters.

And, then there are events that count:
WACO, TEXAS - No. 17 Winston Lin upset No. 5 Sebastian Stiefelmeyer of Louisville 7-5, 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Men's Tennis Singles Championships.

Lin will face No.19 Thai-Son Kwiatkowski of Virginia tomorrow (May 23) in the quarters at 2 p.m. (EDT)
