Offseason news[edit]

On Opening Day, the NCAA announced the decision to declare senior pitcher Ben Wetzler ineligible due to violating NCAA regulations. When deciding whether to forego his senior year in favor of playing professionally, Wetzler had contact with an adviser who in turn had contact with a professional organization. The NCAA declared Wetzler ineligible for 20% of the team's games, making him eligible on Sunday, March 2, a home matchup slated against the Wright State Raiders.[2]
