The Middle Tennessee baseball team will face a challenging schedule that features 10 games against NCAA Tournament teams, as well as, 28 games at Reese Smith Jr. Field, Head Coach Jim Toman has announced.
Among the NCAA Tournament teams on the 2019 docket are C-USA foes Florida Atlantic and Southern Miss, as well as in-state foes Tennessee Tech and Vanderbilt.
“Traditionally, MTSU has always played a tough schedule and I am sure our guys will be excited to play each opponent,” Toman said. “The schedule should provide us with a very good RPI if we win enough games.”
Middle Tennessee fans will be able to see their Blue Raiders early and often, as the first seven games of the season will take place in Murfreesboro. Bowling Green will head south to Murfreesboro for a three-game series, with the home opener slated for Feb. 15.
The team will be back for the annual Mule Mix Classic, as the Blue Raiders are set to host Northern Illinois, Toledo, Western Michigan, and Bradley, beginning on Feb. 21.
