CMU Baseball Wins MAC Regular Season Title
MOUNT PLEASANT – They weren’t sure it could be done, but they did it.
The Central Michigan baseball team came back from an 8-5 conference record, winning 15 straight to take the title for the first time since 2015.
“Just couldn’t be more proud of these kids,” said head coach Jordan Bischel. “Four weeks ago we were 8-5 and little did we know we couldn’t lose another one to win the league, and we didn’t and that doesn’t happen. It’s been a cool experience and I’d be remiss to not mention there was a lot of groundwork laid here. This is a really good program so it’s not like anything I did, it’s what these kids did and that’s important to remember. They’re good kids that were going to win regardless if I was here or not and to be part of it was pretty cool for me.”
The Chippewas defeated Miami 10-3 on Saturday to win the championship, a monumental moment for Coach Bischel, who’s in his first season with the Chippewas.
“It felt really good cause that’s what we came here to do, to win and it’s just been great in Coach Bischel’s first season to get it done already,” said CMU’s Zavier Warren, who became the all time leader for single season doubles in CMU history.
They end the regular season with an overall record of 43-12, and 22-5 in conference.
CMU becomes the number one seed for the MAC Tournament and will play the winner of Kent State and Ohio on May 23.
