We tend to be critical at times of the MAAC Conference's decisions/thinking.
So I believe it's only fair to say...... Thank you to the MAAC Conference for listening & expanding the softball tournament! After adding 2 teams to the conference the decision makers have shown true leadership with this announcement.
This will definitely make every conference game mean much more. With 6 teams in the playoffs the atmosphere at the tournament will be electric!
Thanks again to the MAAC nailed this one!!
