Much can be determined on film. It is very difficult to measure defensive abilities on paper. Fielding percentage cannot be used as an accurate statistic because it is difficult to calculate and it can be easily manipulated. Most Division II players have received several accolades, such as All Conference or All Area. Division III Baseball Some Division III programs are stronger than others, but there seems to be more continuity with the physical characteristics of Division III players than there are for Division II or NAIA. Certain D III programs, such as Wisconsin Whitewater or George Fox, play at a superior level. However, for the most part, the range of physical characteristics was slim.

NAIA BASEBALL The discrepancies in characteristics are very severe when it comes to NAIA baseball. Some NAIA schools are playing at a Division II level, while others are competing at a lower Division III level. NCSA found a mix of Division II criteria and Division III criteria make up the recruiting guidelines for this league.
