Cabrini, Gwynedd Mercy, West Chester, Cairn, and PSU-Abington have title shots; Saint Joseph's opens key series with VCU

Philadelphia College Baseball Notebook
Saint Joseph's is the only local D-I program that has the potential to reach their conference (A-10) tournament. As of now, they are sitting in seventh place in the A-10 (10-8) and would claim the last postseason berth.

The Hawks host conference leader VCU for an important three-game set beginning this afternoon. Following this series, the Hawks will go on the road next weekend to face UMass in what could potentially be an important series with postseason implications. The Minutemen trail the Hawks by 1 1/2 games in the A-10 standings

Other Postseason Updates
D-II: Jefferson lost twice yesterday in the CACC double-elimination tournament. The Rams end their season 19-31 overall but with a 16-16 mark in conference play ... West Chester faces Gannon this morning (9 AM) in the PSAC tournament. The winner moves on while the loser will play an elimination game this afternoon.

D-III: Most local attention will be on the Atlantic East Conference championship beginning today with Cabrini and Gwynedd Mercy opening a best-of-three series with one game this afternoon (3:30 PM) and potentially two on Saturday ... Cairn faces Keystone this afternoon in the first game of a best-of-three series to determine the CSAC champion ... Penn State-Abington faces Wells on Saturday in the NEAC tournament.

Award Schedule
The Philadelphia Baseball Review will begin unveiling our yearly college baseball awards next week. We'll have division specific awards, but will also announce several All-Philadelphia awards that will span across all three levels.

The quality of play all season - at all three levels - has been outstanding.
