LIMA, OH :: In just their second season of the program, HIU’s Baseball team punched their ticket to the NAIA World Series by going undefeated in the Opening Round and defeating #10 Middle Georgia State in the Championship Game with a final score of 12-11. The Royals will travel to Lewiston, Idaho, for the 61st World Series that runs from May 26-June 2, 2017.

The Royals came from behind in all three of their Lima Bracket games in Ohio (hosted by UNOH) and completed a perfect 3-0 run with a pair of wins against Middle Georgia and a win over their host UNOH. HIU improves to 35-16 overall for this historic season and boasts a 9-4 record against teams in the NAIA Coaches' Top 25 poll this season, including a 6-1 record against teams ranked in the Top 10 at the time of play.

When asked for his reaction to the World Series berth, Coach Erich Pfohl replied "To be able to give these guys the opportunity to go compete [at the World Series] after all they've given our coaches and me, I'm truly speechless and so happy for them."
