Good Non-Conference Games Set For Golden Bears…
Cal has released its 2012 college baseball schedule. The Golden Bears open their season with a three game series against Pacific. Cal will host the first and third games of the series, with game two on Pacific’s home field in Stockton, CA. Cal head coach Dave Esquer and Pacific head coach Ed Sprague played together on Stanford’s 1987 national championship team.
The Golden Bears go to Long Beach State for three games Feb. 24-26. After a trip to the 2011 College World Series, they head back to the Cornhusker state March 9-12 for a four game series against Nebraska. Cal also heads to Texas March 30-April 1 for a four game series against the Longhorns.
Cal opens Pac-12 play March 16-18 when it hosts Oregon State. Other conference home series are against Washington, Utah, Arizona, and UCLA. Conference road series are at Arizona State, USC, Oregon, and Washington State. WSU will also visit Cal for a May 14 midweek game.
Creighton, San Francisco and Stanford are among the other non-conference home games Cal has set for 2012. The Bears will travel to San Francisco, Fresno State and twice to Santa Clara in non-league action. Cal played on Santa Clara’s home field when it hosted a 2011 Super Regional.
Cal still has an open weekend March 2-4 that it looks to fill with a TBD opponent.
