Terps To Face Eight 2009 NCAA Tournament teams
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland released its 2010 baseball schedule on Monday, which includes 23 games against 2009 NCAA Tournament teams, 13 of which are home contests.
The schedule includes a total of 31 home games at Shipley Field at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium. The conference slate looks to be particularly tough, as Maryland faces all seven Atlantic Coast Conference teams that made the NCAA Tournament in 2009.
The Terps open their first season under head coach Erik Bakich on Feb. 19 when they travel to Miami, Fla., for a three-game set with Florida International.
Maryland will open a 10-day, eight-game homestand when they welcome in Delaware the following weekend, Feb. 26-28. Virginia Military Institute comes to Shipley Field on Tuesday, March 2, Towson visits on Wednesday, March 3 and Hofstra comes to College Park for a three-game set March 5-7.
ACC play gets underway on Friday, March 12, as Maryland travels to Blacksburg, Va., for a three-game set with Virginia Tech.
Maryland’s next seven ACC series are against 2009 NCAA Tournament participants: the Terps host Georgia Tech March 19-21; travel to Tallahassee to take on Florida State March 26-28; welcome North Carolina, which has made it to the past four College World Series, April 2-4; travel to Boston College April 9-11; host 2009 CWS participant Virginia April 23-25; visit Miami, which made its 37th consecutive NCAA tournament appearance in 2009, April 30-May 2; and host Clemson May 7-9.
