WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – William and Mary head baseball coach Brian Murphy announced the 2015 baseball schedule on Monday morning. This year’s competitive slate is highlighted by a pair of teams that played in the College World Series, four teams that played in the Super Regionals, seven teams that made the 2014 NCAA Tournament, and 29 home games.
“It is a great schedule that we have put together for the upcoming season,” Murphy said. “The success of the last couple of years’ teams have made it realistic to create a schedule that allows us to gain an RPI to potentially warrant an at-large bid. I think this schedule certainly does that. Off the bat, we are playing two teams that went to Omaha last year. We open up at Ole Miss, and get to play Virginia. Aside from that we play several other teams that played in Super Regionals, including College of Charleston and Kennesaw State, add in a handful of NCAA Tournament teams, and it’s a really competitive schedule.” Continue reading William and Mary releases 2015 Schedule
