Middlebury College baseball senior captain Alex Kelly (Rockville, Md.) has earned second-team All-NESCAC honors. Garnering his first all-conference laurel, the fourth-year Panther led the team and ranks fourth in the NESCAC in hitting this year with a .383 average, while pacing the squad in several other offensive categories.


Tufts, the ninth-ranked team in the nation, took a pair from Middlebury on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon at Forbes Field. The Jumbos, hosts of next weekend’s NESCAC baseball tournament, improve to 30-5 overall, while the Panthers end their season at 5-24. Tufts took game one by a 6-0 score, and won the second half of the twinbill, 10-1.


The Middlebury baseball team split a pair of low-scoring games at Forbes Field on a breezy Saturday against Bowdoin. The Polar Bears earned a come-from-behind 2-1 win in game one, but the Panthers rebounded for a 3-2 victory in the nightcap. Middlebury concludes its season with a 12:30 p.m. home doubleheader on Sunday against Tufts, while the Polar Bears play a single game at Saint Joseph’s.


Due to the possibility of unfavorable weather later in the day on Saturday, the Bowdoin at Middlebury baseball doubleheader has been changed. Originally scheduled with a first pitch at noon, the twinbill will now begin at 10:00 a.m.


Due to the forecast, the baseball game scheduled for Wednesday, April 30th at Plymouth State has been cancelled. Middlebury will wrap up its season this weekend when they host Bowdoin on Saturday and Tufts on Sunday in a pair of doubleheaders.
