Eagles hoping home field works to their advantage at regionals

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

The UW-La Crosse baseball team is seeking to re-discover their winning ways.

The NCAA Div. III Midwest Regionals would be a great place to start.

UW-L saw their 10-game winning streak end at the WIAC Tournament last week when they lost two in a row.

That led to an early exit.

Good thing they already had an impressive resume on file.

That allowed them to earn the number two seed in the Midwest Regional, which the Eagles will host starting Wednesday at Copeland Park.

UW-L has fared well at home going 15-3 this season.

"It's exciting that we worked so hard as a team to get in here and now that we're finally here we're able to play for a regional title in front of our home fans. Hopefully, we can bring it home for them," said pitcher Ben Cejka.

"Being able to play on our home field is an advantage. There's no question about it. The whole reason we bid on the regional back in the fall was because we wanted to be playing on our home field. We're excited to have it here and we're excited for the community to come out and watch some good baseball," said head coach Chris Schwarz.

The first game of the double-elimination tournament starts at 10 in the morning.

The Eagles will play St. Scholastica at 7:45 in the evening.
