From McNeese St website:
https://mcneesesports.com/sports/baseball/schedule/2020
Friday - McNeese St vs Valpo
Saturday - McNeese St vs USM
Sunday - McNeese St vs Valpo, McNeese St vs USM

From Valpo website:
http://www.valpoathletics.com/baseball/schedule/
Friday: Valpo vs McNeese St
Saturday: Valpo vs USM (listed twice so appears a DH?)
Sunday: Valpo vs McNeese St

Something isn't adding up as neither has us playing them on Friday yet it's appearing like a triple header on Saturday which we know isn't happening

Friday - McNeese State vs Valpo
Saturday - Valpo vs USM, then McNeese State vs USM
Sunday - Valpo vs McNeese State, then McNeese State vs USM

I could be wrong about Saturday, but I seriously doubt the team from Indiana plays the late game on Sunday. If I had to guess, the hosts would rather play us than Valpo for the late games so as to maximize attendance.

Given how busy I-10 and I-12 is, that’s going to be a long bus trip for our guys.

I was under the assumption each team played 4 games (2 games vs each opponent) as that's the only way we play 56 total. Each team should have 1 DH day and 2 days of single games. My guess would be a typo on Valpo's schedule and "maybe" should play us on Friday

Friday: USM vs Valpo, McNeese vs Valpo,
Saturday: McNeese vs Valpo, McNeese vs USM
Sunday: USM vs Valpo, USM vs McNeese

Friday and Saturday games at 2 pm and 6 pm with Sunday games at 11 am and 3 pm?

Baseball finally announces the schedule with the only change that I can tell is we are only playing 3 games at McNeese as we play them on Friday and Sunday while playing Valpo once on Saturday. With that being said that puts us back at 55 games. The McNeese St weekend is all mixed up on paper then as the McNeese website has them only playing Valpo on Friday yet our website has us playing McNeese on Friday. Then on Saturday our schedule has us playing Valpo while McNeese's website has them (McNeese) playing us. Guess they'll get all that figured out in the next month or so.

We're gonna need to win a bunch of games because that schedule won't be very RPI friendly.

What frustrates me is that it’s not like there aren’t good teams looking for weekend series. Heck, Michigan was looking for a series and we didn’t even try. Berry is just looking to pad his wins so it looks good on paper. Meanwhile, we’ll get smoked against decent pitching because we haven’t seen it all year...again.

And just realized it's a good possibility there is no spring game football with baseball DH this year unless the spring game is pushed back a few weeks.

April 9-11 - UTSA (Thursday through Saturday due to Easter)
April 17-19 - at Charlotte
April 24-26 - Rice

The spring game is usually the 2nd or 3rd Saturday in April but I don't see us doing it on Easter weekend while we are away the next weekend. I guess time will tell.
