It is Christmas day in the world of Division II baseball, as 23 schools begin the 2016 season today in 14 different games. The first games of the season begin at 2 p.m. Eastern, as Davis & Elkins takes on Erskine and Holy Names faces CSU-Monterey Bay in the first game of a doubleheader today. That is one of two DH's today, with CSU-Stanislaus taking on William Jessup in a doubleheader at 4 p.m. Eastern. The lone conference game of the day begins at 6 p.m. with Palm Beach Atlantic against Embry-Riddle in SSC play. Unfortunately, one game has already been rescheduled, as Chico State's season-opener against Menlo has been moved to Saturday.
Before we kick off the 2016 season, let's take a look at how each of the eight regions is stacking up, as we preview the landscape of Division II baseball this year.

I know I promised this post a long time ago shortly after the actual baseball season ended, but life got in the way and here it is right before we get started in to 2016. I wanted to put a bow on the 2015 season by recapping what the 2015 Division II First-Year Player Draft acquisitions did in their rookie campaigns as professionals. In here, you'll find a statistical breakdown of every Division II player who was picked in the 2015 draft, their stats across all levels they reached, and any awards or accolades they collected.
