For the second straight year, the St. Joseph’s College baseball team has received a post-season berth and will head to Springfield, Illinois, to compete in the 2014 United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Small College World Series.

Reaching the 20-win mark for the second straight season, the Bears (24-9) have earned the No. 6 seed for the 10-team, double-elimination tournament and will face No. 3 Penn State Greater Allegheny (28-9, 18-0 PSUAC) in their opening round matchup on Monday, May 12, at 6:30 p.m.

The Bears and Lions met in last year’s Small College World Series – the only meeting between the two squads – with the Lions prevailing 6-1 in the elimination matchup, winning five more games facing elimination before finishing as national runner up.

Tuesday’s second round matchups will pit the Bears against either No. 2 Lindenwood University-Belleville, No. 7 Selma University or No. 10 Robert Morris University Springfield.

Defending national champion University of Cincinnati Clermont has earned the overall No. 1 seed.
