CAMBIDGE, Mass. - Harvard has posted its completed 2010 baseball schedule. Joe Walsh’s Crimson plays its first 22 games away from home in what will be a 43-game regular season schedule.
Harvard begins its season March 6-7 at the Bright House Invitational hosted by Stetson University in DeLand, Fla. The Crimson opens on the 6th with a split doubleheader. Harvard starts out with an 11 a.m. game against Notre Dame, which will be looking to avenge a 4-0 loss to the Crimson early in the 2007 season. Harvard returns to the diamond at 7 p.m. that night to face the host Hatters team. The next day Harvard confronts Kansas State in a noon start.
Kristaps Aldins was introduced as an assistant coach at Harvard by Joe Walsh. Aldins enters his first season at Harvard after completing four seasons on the bench at nearby Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
At MIT, Aldins worked with the Engineers’ pitchers, catchers, and outfielders. Aldins was also responsible for all facets of a nationwide recruiting process. During his stint at MIT, the team compiled an overall record of 82-63 with a program-record 25 wins in 2008. In 2006 the Engineers advanced to the NEWMAC Championship Game for the first time in program history and earned a bid to the ECAC Tournament.

Since then, six other Ivy League teams have won the title as the Big Green waited for another shot at glory. That all changed in 2009 as Bob Whalen’s squad emerged to take the Ivy League Baseball Championship in the rubber match of a three-game series with Bill Walkenbach’s Cornell squad, all the while ending the 22-year drought.
