Texas State has 36 home games, including contests against Rice, Texas A&M and Texas Christian on its 2010 baseball schedule released Thursday.
The Bobcats will open with a three-game series at Houston Feb. 19-21, then play a game at Rice on Feb. 23 before going to a tournament at Baylor, where they will play the host team, Texas A&M and Western Kentucky.
Texas State will open at home against Rice on March 3. Texas A&M comes to San Marcos for the first time since 2000 on March 30. Baylor comes to Bobcat Stadium on April 21, and Texas Christian comes for a game on May 12.
The Bobcats will go to Texas on March 9 and April 13, they go to Texas Tech on March 16, they play at Texas Christian on March 23, and they play at Baylor on April 6.
“Our fans have grown accustomed to seeing the Texas State baseball program compete in an exciting schedule against challenging teams,” said Texas State baseball coach Ty Harrington. “I know that this season will rank very close to one of the top schedules with the level of competition we have set for 2010.”
The Southland Conference schedule isn’t especially favorable for the Bobcats, who will play at Sam Houston State (March 19-21) and at Southeastern Louisiana (April 16-18). Sam Houston State won the Southland Conference Tournament last year and went to the NCAA Tournament after finishing second in the league. Southeastern Louisiana finished third in the Southland Conference last season.
The Bobcats finished 41-17 last year, winning the Southland Conference regular season and going to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000.
