Eagles Win Region, Go to World Series
The OC baseball team beat Ecclesia (Ark.) 5-1 at Dobson Field to win the NCCAA Central Region title, ending the game by turning a triple play.
The Eagles clinched their first postseason crown in 41 years and advanced to the NCCAA World Series. They fell one win short of the national semifinals, but closed a 26-26 season as the second national-tournament team in program history.
The other came in 1972, when the Max Dobson-coached Eagles won the NAIA District 9 and Area 3 titles before finishing third in the NAIA World Series.
