FVC Rising

If you aren’t paying attention, let me tell you there’s some darn good baseball being played in the FVC this spring. Well, when it isn’t raining or snowing. The conference fielded 10 teams at or above .500 entering Thursday’s action, and each of them are a serious candidate to win a regional in the postseason. The division races are going to be incredible for sure. I’ve given the nod to the MSL over the FVC in both football and basketball earlier this year, but I have to give a decisive edge to the Valley on the diamond.

By the way, I like way the conference has set up home-and-home series throughout the division schedule. It kind of gives the FVC slate a big-league feel. Whoever wins the most series should end up on top. It also means the same teams won’t face the same pitcher four times in a season like we’ve seen occur in the MSL.
