Tri-captain Alex Perry and his teammates had one of the best seasons in Tufts history for 2010

MEDFORD -- The Tufts University baseball team, which won the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) title and earned the #1 seed in the NCAA Division III Regional, finished the 2010 season as the #10 team in the final American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/College Baseball national poll dated June 3.

Coach John Casey's Jumbos finished with a 34-7 record, blowing away the previous team record for wins (27 by the 2002 Tufts team). With an 8-2 mark out of the gate, the Jumbos came home from their spring break trip south with their best record since the 2000 season. They set a new school record for wins with their 28th in the final game of the regular-season at Bentley on May 4. Tufts had a 28-5 record for the regular-season.

The Jumbos won the NESCAC East Division pennant in 2010 with a 10-2 record, earning the right to host the conference championship at Huskins Field. Along with sweeping through conference foes to win their second NESCAC title against Bowdoin on May 9, the team also presented Coach Casey with the 500th victory of his Tufts coaching career that day.

As the #1 seed at the NCAA Regional hosted by Eastern Connecticut State University, Tufts finished as the runner-up to UMass Boston following two victories over St. Joseph's of Maine and one against host Eastern Connecticut.
