DavidPalmsPrinceton PRINCETON (9/22/09) – The Princeton baseball team’s first trip to California in nearly 20 years and seven home dates highlight the 2010 Princeton baseball schedule.

The season kicks off with the weekend of March 5-7 when Princeton visits Elon for four games. The Tigers will open the weekend on Friday with a game against Bucknell, then will meet Elon for two games on Saturday and will complete the trip with a game on Sunday afternoon against Radford. Princeton’s game with Bucknell will be its first against the Bison since the 1991 season and the Tigers will face Radford for the first time ever. Princeton last met Elon three seasons ago.

Princeton will embark on its Spring Break trip the following weekend on March 13 and has 10 games planned over the nine-day stretch. The week will follow the same schedule it has in each of the last two seasons and start with three games at UNC Greensboro. Princeton will visit North Carolina the Tuesday and Wednesday of the week before a Thursday game at North Carolina A&T. Princeton will play four games over the final three days of the trip at Navy.

The Tigers come back to campus after Spring Break and have one weekend before Ivy play commences. Princeton will spend the weekend in California with a four-game series at Santa Clara. The Tigers have never played Santa Clara and have only traveled to California once before. That visit came in the 1992 season when Princeton went to northern California for Spring Break and played eight different teams.

Princeton will return to campus for the start of the Ivy season on April 3 and 4 when Harvard and Dartmouth visit Clarke Field for Ivy League doubleheaders. Princeton then has a midweek game at Rutgers and visits Brown and Yale for doubleheaders the following weekend.

Princeton hosts Monmouth on April 13 and then plays five straight away from home, including a four-game Gehrig Division series at Columbia and a non-league game at St. John’s. The Tigers host Penn for four games April 24-25 and Rider on April 28 before closing the regular season with a home-and-home series against Cornell on April 30 and May 2.
