LeLacheur Park to host America East tournament

LOWELL, Mass. -- The America East Conference, the Lowell Spinners and Massachusetts-Lowell announced today that LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Mass. will host the America East Baseball Championship for the next four years (2014-17). The park acts as the home of Boston Red Sox single-A affiliate Lowell Spinners, as well as America East member UMass-Lowell.

The state of the art facility hosted the 2013 championship for the first time, in which Binghamton captured the title. The 2014 championship will take place May 22-24 and May 25 if necessary.

“Committing to LeLacheur Park for the next four years continues to build the brand of America East baseball and enhances the experience for our student-athletes,” said America East Commissioner Amy Huchthausen.

“LeLacheur Park is a first-class minor league facility that produced a great atmosphere for our teams and fans in 2013. It is in a perfect location for our fans and institutions, offering all the amenities plus much more, for our championship.”

The venue was built between a partnership with the city of Lowell and the University of Massachusetts Lowell and offers views of the Aiken Street Bridge and Lawrence Mills.

The top four teams in the America East regular-season standings will advance to the 2014 America East Baseball Championship.

Albany has made an appearance in the conference tournament in each of the last five seasons, and eight of the last 10 years. The Great Danes captured the America East title in 2007 and advanced to the NCAA Regional in Fayetteville, Ark.

The 2012 champion, Stony Brook, became the first America East team to qualify for the College World Series since the conference started sponsoring the sport in 1990, upsetting perennial power LSU in the Super Regional.

The Sweet 16 of college basketball nicknames and the stories behind them

Welcome to the Sweet 16. No, not that Sweet 16, but the bracket for the Great Nickname Showdown in Division I. That way we can decide a national champion – March Madness for monikers, even if it’s December.A word or two about criteria. Uniqueness counted heavily, as did quirkiness. But an interesting back story also scored highly. Since there are no metrics for nicknames – couldn’t find one thing on KenPom – no seeding was done. This Sweet 16 was bracketed by a blind draw, which might leave the NCAA selection committee aghast.
