MANKATO, Minn. (WCCO) — The Minnesota State University, Mankato baseball team is headed to its second Division-II World Series in three years.

The 48-10 squad won its conference and regional tournament and now plays in the eight-team, double-elimination World Series taking place from May 26 to June 2 in Cary, N.C.

It’s a continuation of Maverick tradition.

“We have a winning program almost every year,” senior infielder Patrick Dockendorf said. “It kind of helps to have a good group of seniors and younger guys.”

It’s a program that Dean Bowyer built into a winner before he retired.

Now, Matt Magers, has his team focused on a title. Then again, it helps that classes ended two weeks ago, giving his players a baseball-only lifestyle.

“They take pride in their preparation,” Magers said.
