JohnRussoHofstraHempstead, NY – A nine-day road trip that features a three-game series at five-time College World Series participant UCLA and a five-game series at Hawaii highlights the 2015 Hofstra University baseball schedule, which was released today by Head Coach John Russo.

“I am very excited about our 2015 schedule,” said Coach Russo. “I think opening up with a team that has the history and tradition like UCLA will be beneficial for our student-athletes. In my mind, it is one of the top places to play in the country and we are looking forward to it. We are also looking forward to playing in Hawaii. The competition will be good for us and will help prepare us for the rigors of conference play, which starts up in mid-March. I think the Colonial Athletic Association will be tough once again. The addition of Elon adds another historically successful program to the mix and the battle for those six playoff spots will be fierce.” Continue reading Hofstra releases 2015 Schedule
