Baseball Geography Update

With only Game Three of the championship series left to play, all games pitting an Eastern team versus a Western team have been decided.

A review of the results from this season:

  • In the tournament, Green was 27-14 against Red for a .659 winning percentage.
  • The last four teams standing are all from the green.
  • Three super regionals matched Green against Red. Green swept all three (Arizona St. over Clemson, Cal St.-Fullerton over Louisville, Arkansas over Florida St.).
  • Virginia had by far the best showing for a red team, winning their regional at Irvine and eliminating Fullerton at the College World Series.
  • The other two red teams to make the CWS, North Carolina and Southern Miss, had a total of one Green opponent in either their regional or the opposing regional in their super regional bracket. The 1 out of 14 was 3-seed Kansas in North Carolina's regional.
  • Green was 5-1 against Red at the College World Series.
  • Overall on the year, Green went 707-468 against Red for a .602 winning percentage.
  • There were 202 red teams and 100 green teams in my ratings this year. This is part of why the RPI in college baseball is so bad.
