The bats came alive, the pitching came through and the first full weekend of Summit League competition ended with UNO sitting atop the conference. A double-header sweep of Fort Wayne on Friday and Oakland on Sunday left the Mavs 4-0 in the league, two games ahead of their closest competitor.
When a pickle between UNO's Alex Schultz and the left side of the North Dakota infield resulted in a benches clearing scuffle Friday afternoon, it may have created a time bomb.
Just because the UNO baseball team is the new team on the block doesn't mean they intend on easing their way into Division I baseball. In their second official year as a D-1 baseball team, and first as a full-time Summit League member, Head Coach Bob Herold wants to dive right in, especially when it comes to scheduling.
