    Xavier Baseball 2023

    Figure it's time to fire up this thread for the upcoming season as well. The baseball team opens up the following weekend with a 4-game series at Oregon starting on Friday the 17th.

    Season tickets are going for $35 this year; there's also a complimentary admission game when they play against Northern Illinois at Prasco Park on Friday, March 31 at 5 PM. The Musketeers were picked to finish 3rd in the Big East behind UConn and Creighton; Georgetown was picked 4th.

    I believe this is also the final year that the Big East Tournament is committed to Prasco Park; not sure what their future plans are after this season. I imagine UConn is going to make a push to have that tournament played in Hartford at some point.

    No real Southern swing. 12 games on the Left Coast which should be fun time in SoCal.
    And Wofford goes to Hayden field.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    They originally had a West Coast trip scheduled in 2020 until Covid interrupted those plans.

    The road starts at UC-Santa Barbara with a single game at Cal Poly and finishes with a series at Saint Mary's.

    As for Wofford, I'd expect most Xavier fans to be preoccupied with another team that weekend.

    For sure. There is supposedly a St X guy coming down next year to play at Wofford.

    Play Ball!

    Oregon gets a run in the 1st inning after a 2-out walk by Xavier.

    Promising stuff from Ethan Bosacker. Better if it had come in a win, but you can't have it all.

    Hate to jinx it, but Xavier is currently leading a top 15ish Louisville team 6-5 in the 7th inning. It WAS 6-2, but Louisville got 3 in the 6th.

    I get the sense that Xavier's pitching is still going to be an issue this year.

    Their pitching at Oregon was decent at times, but the bats failed them during the 4-game sweep.

    Not surprised they're losing home run derby games at this stage.

    Winless no more! The Muskies played their first unranked opponent today in Western Carolina and came away with their first win, 9-4. Two more games in the series, tomorrow and Sunday.
