Merchant Marine Earns ECAC Metro Championships Bid; Hosts #2 Old Westbury on Wednesday
The USMMA baseball season is not over yet as the Mariners secured a bid into the ECAC Metro Region Championships as the tournament's seventh seed. The Mariners will play host to the second-seeded Panthers of Old Westbury Friday afternoon at 4:30 pm on Lower Roosevelt Field. The two teams met earlier this season in Westbury, NY with the home side pulling out a 5-4 victory in extra innings.
The ECAC Metro Region Championships is a single elimination tournament whose semifinals and final will take place this weekend at top-seeded St. John Fisher, who also received a first-round bye. The Mariners or Panthers will take-on the winner of #3 Richard Stockton and #6 SUNY Purchase on Saturday. Fans can follow all of Wednesday's action via live stats HERE.
