MSU baseball announces 2014 schedule

Nov. 22, 2013 — Twenty-three home games, including weekend series with Ohio Valley Conference rivals Tennessee Tech, Belmont, UT Martin, Austin Peay and Jacksonville State, highlight the 2014 baseball schedule released by head Coach Mike McGuire on Thursday.

The 2014 slate features 57 games against 27 teams, with non-conference matchups including teams from the SEC, Big 10 and American Athletic Conference.

The 2014 campaign begins Feb. 14-16, with the Eagles traveling to Spartanburg, S.C. for the Wofford/USC Upstate Invitational. They will face off with Ball State, George Mason and Wofford.

“With so many new players I wanted to test ourselves early, and our opening weekend tournament should accomplish that,” McGuire said.

The Eagles' home opener comes the weekend of Feb. 28 with a three-game series against Fairleigh Dickinson. They also play host to weekend series with OVC foes Tennessee Tech (March 14-16), Belmont (March 28-30), UT Martin (April 17-19), Austin Peay (May 2-4) and Jacksonville State (May 15-17).

MSU will open up OVC play on the road with a weekend series at Murray State on March 7-9. The Eagles also will travel to Southeast Missouri State (March 21-23), Eastern Kentucky (April 4-6), SIU Edwardsville (April 25-27), and Eastern Illinois (May 9-11) to round out conference play.

Nonconference weekend series include a trip to Grambling State (Feb. 21-23) as well as a challenging series with 2013 Big 10 Champion and College World Series participant Indiana in Bloomington, Ind., April 11-13.

“A three-game series versus Indiana should be a very challenging weekend,” McGuire said. “They have almost everyone back from a great squad that made it to Omaha last year.”

Midweek matchups in the 2014 campaign include road dates at Mississippi Valley State (Feb. 19), Louisville (Feb. 26), Marshall (March 11), Alabama A&M (March 18-19), Northern Kentucky (March 26), Kentucky (April 8), Ohio (April 22) and Tennessee (May 13).

There are also several home midweek tilts on the schedule, with Eastern Michigan (March 4-5), St. Catharine (April 2), Shawnee State (April 15) and Northern Kentucky (April 30) all traveling to Allen Field for a matchup with the Eagles.

“Our 2014 schedule will not only challenge us but should prepare us for the rigors of OVC competition,” McGuire said. “Single road games at Louisville, Kentucky and Tennessee should be good measuring sticks.”

The 2014 OVC Championship will be held May 21-25 in Jackson, Tenn., where the top six teams during regular season play will battle it out for the title.
