UMAC baseball tournament starts today at Wade Stadium

Seeking its 21st consecutive UMAC postseason title, St. Scholastica will host the conference tournament today through Saturday at Wade Stadium.

Utilizing a five-team format for the first time, fifth-seeded UW-Superior (10-22 overall) and No. 4 Northland (10-23) get things going at 1 p.m. The winner of the single-elimination contest advances to face No. 1 St. Scholastica (20-9) at 7 p.m. In between, second-seeded Bethany Lutheran (19-9) and No. 3 Northwestern (17-16, 12-4) hook up at 4.

The Saints and Bethany Lutheran shared the conference's regular-season crown, but St. Scholastica won the run-differential tiebreaker, allowing it to host.

Following today's first game, the bracket becomes double-elimination. The finals are slated for 1 p.m. Saturday, with an if-necessary game to follow.
