Huntington, Ind. - The Mid-Central College Conference league office has released the bracket for the 2011 MCC Baseball Tournament, hosted by Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Ind. Tournament play is scheduled for May 4-6 with a rain date set for Saturday, May 7.

Taylor (35-12), the outright regular season champion for the second straight season, will enter the six-team, double elimination tournament as the No. 1 seed.


The MCC Tournament champion will receive an automatic bid to the NAIA National Championship Opening Round at one of nine opening round campus sites from May 12-16.

All MCC Tournament games are nine innings with a 10-run rule after seven innings in effect for the first round only. There will be no run rule after the first round.

Live stats for most tournament games will be available on the DakStats MCC Tournament page with select Taylor games available on the Taylor website.
