MIAA release

FREELAND, Mich.--The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association office announced on Sunday the schedule and postseason seeds for the fifth annual 2016 MIAA Baseball Tournament, scheduled to be taking place on Wednesday through Saturday.

Ticket prices per game are $7 for adults, $5 for non-MIAA students, seniors (65+) and MIAA faculty and staff with proper identification. All MIAA-institution students are FREE with ID. If you choose to leave the facility, you will need to purchase another ticket to re-enter. Parking is available at the Bulldogs Track and Field Complex, softball parking lot and limited spaces along Creehan Lane.

Multimedia services like live streaming video and Live Stats will be announced later on AdrianBulldogs.com and Twitter @AdrianBulldogs.

For the fourth time in five years, Adrian will serve as the host institution as the No. 1 seed. The Bulldogs, who are the four-time defending MIAA tournament champions, will host fourth-seeded Kalamazoo College at 4 p.m. Wednesday in one of two first-round contests. 

The Scots will host No. 3 seed Hope College at Alma's Klenk Park in the other opening-round game at the same time as KC/AC.

All contests are scheduled for nine innings.

Beginning Thursday, three visiting teams descend on Adrian's Nicolay Field for the remainder of the tournament. The tournament championship is slated for Friday.

Adrian, which has tied a MIAA record with eight regular-season titles in a row and 11 overall in program history, is seeking its ninth-straight NCAA Division III Baseball Championship appearance. At 30-10 this season, the Bulldogs have reached the 30-win plateau for nine consecutive years.

Meanwhile, No. 2 seed Alma utilized a sweep of Olivet College over the weekend to secure the No. 2 seed in the tournament.
