Division I survived a challenge to its new 14-week schedule at the NCAA convention in Atlanta this weekend, but Division II saw its season reduced.
Representatives from more than 280 D-II schools voted to slash D-II workloads across several sports, but baseball may have been the hardest hit. D-II schools voted by more than a three-quarters majority vote to reduce the baseball schedule from 56 to 50 games, starting in 2011. The measures also reduce practice time for many sports, and inaugurate a seven-day mandatory break around Christmas that bars D-II athletes from setting foot on a practice field or gym.
Meanwhile, Division I's decision to add a 14th week to its schedule survived an override vote by a margin of 63-37.
