Congratulations DBU! From the DBU site:
The Patriots Baseball Team has been selected to play in the NCAA Division I National Tournament for the first time in school history.

Head Coach Dan Heefner said, “To earn an at-large bid to an NCAA Regional is an incredible achievement for the DBU baseball program.”

DBU is also the first Independent team other than Miami to make a NCAA Regional since 1992. Read more …
