The 2020 slate features 16 games (9/home, 6/away, 1/neutral) against eight teams that earned a bid to the 2019 NCAA Regionals, 36 against squads with 30-plus wins (19 with 35-plus, three with 40 or more wins) and 10 contests versus six clubs that finished ranked or receiving votes in the final national polls.
ECU will play nine of its first 11 games at Clark-LeClair Stadium, including the LeClair Classic when it welcomes in Indiana (Feb. 28), Ole Miss (Feb. 29) and High Point (March 1). The Pirates will open their 86th season of play hosting William & Mary (Feb. 14-16) and Georgia Southern (Feb. 21-23).
“Our 2020 schedule is filled with quality opponents,” Godwin said. “The American Athletic Conference will once again be one of the best baseball conferences in the country. The combination of playing in one of the toughest conferences along with our quality non-conference schedule will prepare us for postseason play. Pirate Nation, let’s make sure to pack Clark-LeClair Stadium and The Jungle!”
