Wildcat Baseball Will Open 2023 Season Feb. 17
Davidson will embark on a 54-game baseball schedule in 2023, including games at two pro parks and a 24-game Atlantic 10 slate, head coach Rucker Taylor announced Wednesday.
The Wildcats will play their first eight games at Wilson Field, including an opening three-game series against NJIT that begins Friday, Feb. 17.
Davidson will host Western Carolina at Atrium Health Ballpark in Kannapolis on March 14 and welcome N.C. State to Charlotte’s Truist Field April 18.
“Our non-conference schedule has a lot of teams that have been very successful in their leagues and nationally in recent years,” said Taylor, whose team won a program-best 43 games last year. “Playing in Charlotte and Kannapolis midweek for N.C. State and Western Carolina will be great opportunities for fans to get out to some of the best minor league baseball game day experiences offered. And with a lot of home games, especially early in the year, we hope the community will come out and continue to support us.”
The Wildcats will host non-conference series against Lafayette, Bryant, Marist and Tennessee Tech and will visit Coastal Carolina, the 2016 national champions, for three games in early March. Non-conference midweek opponents include N.C. A&T, Queens, High Point, Presbyterian, Duke, Wofford and Winthrop.
In A-10 play, the Wildcats will host Fordham, Dayton, VCU and Saint Louis and visit UMass, Rhode Island, George Washington and Richmond.
VCU will host the A-10 Tournament, set for May 23-27 at The Diamond in Richmond.
