BATON ROUGE, La. (Press Release) – LSU on Tuesday released its 2020 baseball schedule, which features 37 home games and 27 games against teams that participated in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
The 2020 season opens at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field on February 14 when the Tigers face Indiana – a 2019 NCAA Regional finalist – in Game 1 of a three-game series. Along with the 37 regularly-scheduled home games, Alex Box Stadium will also play host to the annual Wally Pontiff Jr. Foundation Classic on March 24 versus Tulane.
The non-conference schedule is highlighted by a trip to Minute Maid Park in Houston for the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic on February 28-March 1, when LSU will meet Texas, Baylor and Oklahoma.
The schedule features the grueling 30-game Southeastern Conference slate, with weekend home series versus Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, South Carolina and Alabama. Starting times for some of the SEC series may be adjusted this fall, when the league releases its TV schedule.
