Providence, RI - Brown Head Baseball Coach Marek Drabinski has announced the team's 2007 schedule. The Bears will open their 46-game season March 2 at the Georgia Southern Classic against the host Eagles.
After playing two games each against Georgia Southern and Kennesaw State, the Bears will travel to Columbia, S.C. to play a three-game set with the University of South Carolina from March 9-11. The Gamecocks were ranked No. 13 in the country in the final 2006 Baseball America poll, and missed making the College World Series by one game, falling to Georgia two games to one in the super-regionals.
Following their series with South Carolina, the Bears will play their closest early-season game to campus in recent memory, playing Sacred Heart at the Ballpark at Harbor Yards in Bridgeport, Connecticut. That will be followed by Brown's Spring Break trip through South Carolina, during which the team will play a combined seven games against Charleston Southern, The Citadel, and Francis Marion.
Brown's Ivy League season will begin with a doubleheader at Princeton on March 31, with the Bears' season opener coming a little more than a week later, April 7, against Columbia. Over the course of the Ivy League season, Brown will play host to Columbia, Penn, Harvard and Yale, as well as non-conference opponents Marist, Connecticut and Central Connecticut.
