In conjunction with the Scranotn/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the Trip-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, Misericordia University will host the 2013 NCAA Division III Baseball Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships from May 14-19 at PNC Field in Moosic.

The winner of the eight-team, double-elimination tournament will advance to the Division III College World Series and will earn the berth in style.

The RailRiders are putting the finishing touches on PNC Field’s $43 million reconstruction over the next month-plus. The finished product will be one of the elite facilities in all of professional baseball.

Misericordia is the two-time defending Freedom Conference champion and has advanced to the NCAA Division III Regional championships each of the last two years. The Cougars reached the winner’s bracket final of the 2011 Mid-Atlantic Regional and participated in the New York Regional a year ago.

Under head coachPete Egbert, MU has gone 66-26 (.717) over the last two seasons, including a 36-10 (.783) mark and a spot in the national rankings a year ago.
