The Raiders came in, not surprisingly, as the #4 ranked team in the country in today’s pre-season NAIA poll. Meaningless, right? Wrong. Had SOU gone into last season as the #4 ranked team, they would have ended up with home field advantage throughout the playoffs and likely ended up in Florida in December. Instead, they were forced to win a couple of road playoff games, despite their perfect record, to make it to Florida last year. They lost the second in double overtime and were sent home with a 12-1 record.

The Frontier Conference power teams may have shifted. Perhaps Carroll College, Montana Western, and Montana Tech won’t be the teams to beat. This year it may be Rocky Mountain and College of Idaho. Rocky is a road game, and the Raiders will play the Yotes both at home and away.

Rogues wrap up regular season tonight and Saturday night

2018 NAIA Softball Player of the Year

A well-deserved honor was bestowed on Harlee Donovan as she was named the (first-ever from SOU) national player of the year. Besides her gold-glove defense at catcher, she was by far the most feared hitter in the NAIA. This is evidenced by her 62 walks, more than 20 as many as anyone in the NAIA. By way of comparison, her OPS of 1.364 is more than 200 points higher than Babe Ruth’s 1.164–the highest in MLB history. The leader in OPS this year in MLB is Mookie Betts at 1.187.

Kelsey Randall was an All-American for the second year in a row. She came in third in the NAIA in walks (with 40), was first in triples, first in runs scored, and second in stolen bases. On defense she was also first in assists and won four gold gloves as a Raider. She is the all-time record holder in the NAIA in triples.

The Rogues are underway

Rowdy!

@MedfordRogues

Last night was opening night in Medford. The Rogues began the season as they ended last year’s championship season, with another victory. Most importantly, the beer batter on the Lincoln Potters struck out in the 1st, allowing fans to buy $3 beers early on.

Two years ago

I got it!
