Shaw is dropping baseball as an intercollegiate sport.


The Raleigh school announced the decision to end the program on Friday after the Bears went 8-26 overall, 1-17 in the CIAA.


"This was a difficult decision to make," interim athletic director Marcus Clarke said in a statement.  "Shaw has a long tradition in baseball, however as we look to address the fiscal needs of the entire athletic program, it became apparent that reducing the number of sports was a tough, but necessary decision that had to be made at this point.”


Shaw won seven CIAA championships, with the last title in 2006. Over the last three seasons, the Bears went a combined 34-78, including 16-48 in conference games.
Dropping baseball leaves Shaw with 12 intercollegiate programs, with seven sports for women and five for men, including football.
