An underrated, yet very important part of the Division II baseball season has just concluded, and that is the MLB Draft. The returns are good for Division II, as the overall number of draftees went up this year, from 84 in 2015 to 92 in 2016. Although there were no draft picks higher than the fourth round, the landscape certainly shifted this year. Below, we have a multitude of breakdowns when it comes to the Division II field that was drafted.

The if necessary game turned out to be entirely unnecessary on Saturday, as the Sharks of Nova Southeastern University weathered an early 3-0 hole and came back to win, 8-6 over Millersville, to claim the program's first national championship.

One game down, one, possibly two, to go. The national championship series got started on Friday with game one of a possible three, and it was the South representative, Nova Southeastern, inching one step closer to a national championship, claiming a hard-fought 2-1 victory in the title series opener.

There wasn't much drama to be had on Thursday heading in to the weekend. The two teams which entered Thursday's pair of games undefeated so far in the tournament went on to victory, allowing the championship series to get under way on Friday rather than any winner-take-all games on Friday.

We are down to the final four! We lost two more teams on Wednesday's elimination day, and that leaves us with four teams remaining to claim the title of the top baseball program in 2016. Pitching made a strong comeback on Wednesday, and Thursday is looking like a wonderful day for fans of Division II baseball.
