Seton Hill waits after PSAC cancels baseball tourney, awards Bloomsburg title

Paul Schofield

If Seton Hill’s baseball season is to continue, it must wait to hear from the NCAA Division II baseball committee to see if the Griffins will be invited to the upcoming tournament.

The Griffins’ dream of winning a third consecutive Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference tournament came to an end Sunday when the PSAC announced poor weather the rest of the day forced it to cancel the rest of the tournament. Bloomsburg, with a 3-0 record, will be declared the champion.

It was Bloomsburg’s fourth baseball title. The Huskies, the third seed from the PSAC East, blasted Mercyhurst (12-0), Millersville (7-1) and West Chester (14-3).

Seton Hill coach Marc Marizzaldi said he doesn’t think the team has a shot at a regional bid. He said there too many teams ahead of them in the rankings. The May 5 Atlantic Regional rankings didn’t have Seton Hill in the top eight.

The Griffins, who dropped the conference opener to Millersville, 8-5, on Wednesday, rebounded to win three elimination games and were battling West Chester on Saturday night when the game was halted in the fifth inning becasue of heavy rain.

Seton Hill already had eliminated PSAC West rivals Mercyhurst (12-8), Gannon (10-6) and Cal (Pa.), 14-11, but trailed West Chester, 10-7, when action was stopped.

The Griffins finished the tournament 3-1 and improved to 32-20.
