MILLERSVILLE WINS NCBA DIII WORLD SERIES

Congratulations to Millersville University on winning the NCBA Division III World Series!! They defeated Missouri S&T today 10-3. In a back and forth affair, it was Millersville’s offense and pitching performance that prevailed.  For the first time in NCBA DIII history, there were Co-MVP’s named, Joey Fisher of Millersville and Brandon Devlin of Missouri S&T. Joey was the starting pitcher for Millersville in the championship game as he threw a complete game and drove in a pair of runs. Brandon Devlin unfortunately passed away right before the season began for S&T and this season was dedicated to him, thus he has been named a Co-MVP in his honor.
