For most people fall means the end of the baseball season and the start of the playoffs.  But in the college ranks the fall actually brings the birth of a new year.  NCAA teams across the country are breaking out their bats and gloves after a summer away or with various summer-ball clubs.

This fall ball season is a bit different for the Ball State Cardinals, who find themselves under the direction of a new head coach.  Rich Maloney returns to Muncie this season, winner of 256 games with the Cards from 1996 to 2002, a career that encompassed two MAC titles and a No. 1 overall MLB draft pick in Bryan Bullington.  Maloney has spent the last 10 years as the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines. 

Ball State this season returns each of its top four hitters and its five pitchers with the most starts from 2011.  Click above to check in with the Cards as they head through fall ball.
