Alexandria, LA – It’ll be a season of milestones for the Generals, as the LSUA baseball team will celebrate its 10th year of baseball, starting with the schedule release, which came out Wednesday.
LSUA kicks off its tenth season with eight straight at home, starting with a three game set against Stillman College, before welcoming in Loyola for a midweek doubleheader, and rounding it out with a three-game series against Mobile.
The first road trip of the season takes the Generals to Missouri where they’ll meet Northwestern College out of Iowa for a four-game set.
The key feature of LSUA’s non-conference schedule will be a four-game home series against the NAIA World Series Runners-up from a season ago, the Faulkner Eagles, who will be at Generals Field on February 24th and 25th. Following that series is a midweek contest against former LSUA head coach Brent Porche as he brings the Texas-Tyler Eagles to CenLA for a single game.
Red River Athletic Conference Play starts on March 3rd as the Generals head to Texas to take on Jarvis Christian in a three-game series. The conference home opener is the next weekend as University of the Southwest comes to Generals Field for three games.
After that, a seven game road trip ensues, starting with two at preseason #23 William Carey, then a three-game conference series against Texas College and ended with another midweek doubleheader against the Wolf Pack of Loyola in New Orleans.
LSUA then comes home for a pair of conference series, against Texas A&M Texarkana and Houston-Victoria, split by a home midweek doubleheader against the Carey Crusaders.
The season rounds out with a three-game series at Wiley, a date at Southern in Baton Rouge, a home series against Huston-Tillotson, with the last conference road series coming at Our Lady of the Lake before rounding out the home conference slate with in-state foe LSU Shreveport. The last game will be a midweek contest at McNeese State.
The RRAC Tournament returns to Shreveport May 5-8. The NAIA National Tournament opening round will be held at different campus sites May 16-19 with the Avista NAIA World Series set for Lewiston, Idaho May 26-June 2.
