    New ump employs a stance that makes it easier for him to run to third after a hit.

    He's gonna get the most exercise of anyone on the field.

    ACC changes attendance policy for its baseball tournament in Charlotte later this month. Full capacity will be allowed.

    Most of these guys came up through the high-school ranks, where two-man crews are standard. They're trained in two-man mechanics and shouldn't have any trouble adjusting.

    Duke goes 12-3 vs non-conference opponents in the regular season, with 2 losses to perennial power East Carolina, and one loss (vs 2 wins) to Coastal Carolina, another NCAA tournament fixture and former national champ.

    Playing well going into the Clemson series and ACC Tournament.

    Sigh. I've been around one-man umpiring crews a very, very long time ago. I admit that I should have added "at this level" to my post. It was irrelevant given the score.

    5 in a row. Clemson is inconsistent, but the game is down there. We might have left campus for an extended road trip (Davidson-Clemson-ACC Tournament).

    D1 baseball has one of its writers located in Durham. He's not a foreigner to our team, but he doesn't have us in the "first out" category. While I will argue with his choice of VT there, I can't argue leaving both teams off the "first out" list.

    3-7 in ACC series is the biggest thing keeping us out. RPI is a little low (35 is better in the COVID-19 version). Making the ACC tournament semifinals is doable and probably what we need (guess only). The #12 seed, our likely destination, has had a big advantage and has won its pod the last 2 times. Win two games the first two days and then rest your staff until Saturday. That will change if it happens again.

    Carey gets out of a bases loaded one out situation giving up just one run and duke leads 2-1 heading to the 4th.

    Does Duke have a realistic shot at an NCAA bid apart from winning the ACC Tournament?

    Duke would likely have to win this series w/ Clemson and win their pod in the ACC Tournament, making to the semi-finals. Even then, it would not be a sure thing.
