There were 191 NAIA member schools fielding teams this spring.
And there is one champion.
This spring there were 174 Canadians on NAIA teams rosters.
And there was one champion:
RF Richie Seaton (Scarborough, Ont.) was the only Canuck celebrating as the Cumberland Bulldogs won the 58th annual Avista-NAIA World Series in Lewiston, Id.
And he drove in the first two runs of the game as Cumberland blanked the host Lewis-Clark Warriors 3-0 before 5,010 fans.
It was the third national title for Cumberland and coach Woody Hunt, as the Bulldogs claimed national titles in 2004 and 2010 along with a runner-up finish in 2006.
The Bulldog became only the first No. 10 seed to win the title since seeding was established in 2003.
A welcome home celebration for the national champs was held in Lebanon, Tenn. with a parade followed by a picnic at Ernest L. Stockton Field-Woody Hunt Stadium. You know a guy has been around a while -- and had some success -- when the ball yard is named after the coach.
The parade we assume followed the usual route -- The beginning on campus, north on South Tarver Avenue, east on West Main Street, circle the Public Square and return to campus.

And as in the past a Canadian played a key role: OF Charlie MacFarlane (Lantzville, BC), of the Bulldogs earned Canadian Baseball Network College Player of the Year and First Team honours in 2004 and LHP Shawn Schaefer (Pitts Meadows, BC) was named to the Canadian Baseball Network First Team in 2010.
MacFarlane batted .409 with 21 doubles, five triples, 23 homers and 80 RBI in 76 games, while going 11-for-13 stealing bases and a 1.201 OPS for the 2010 national champs.
