Baseball team ready to play ball this weekend

Season begins on Saturday with swing through Tennessee before returning for home opener on Feb. 28 | February 13, 2003

Despite the snow still on the ground and the wintery forecast for the coming weekend, opening day for the baseball team is on Saturday, Feb. 15. The team is heading to warmer locations to play, though, playing four games against East Tennessee State University before heading to Nashville to take on Lipscomb University in a four-game set. The Musketeers home opener is in just two weeks, though, when they host Indiana Institute of Technology at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28. The Musketeers are heading into the season optimistically after finishing 27-27 last season and earning their first berth to the Atlantic 10 Tournament since 1997. When asked about his team, Head Coach John Morrey said, "All of the pieces are in place for us to have a great year. If we stay healthy, it is up to all of us to fulfill the tremendous potential that we have."
