CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The 2010 Harvard baseball prospectus is now available on GoCrimson.com. Included is a preseason roster, projected schedule and "quick facts" about the university and its baseball program.
Harvard's 43-game regular season begins March 6-7 at the Bright House Invitational hosted by Stetson University in DeLand, Fla. The Crimson opens on the 6th with a split doubleheader. Harvard starts out with an 11 a.m. game against Notre Dame, which enters the season raniked 39th nationally in the preseason polls. The Fighting Irish will be looking to avenge a 4-0 loss to the Crimson early in the 2007 season. Harvard returns to the diamond at 7 p.m. that night to face the host Hatters team. The next day Harvard confronts Kansas State in a noon start.
The Crimson then embarks on a 10-day trip to Minnesota and the Carolinas. On March 12-14, Harvard plays single games at the Minneapolis Metrodome, opening against the host Gophers on the 12th. Minnesota enters the season ranked 30th nationally. Harvard defeated Minnesota, 9-1, during its last trip to the Dome in 2005. Harvard will also play South Dakota State (13th) and Creighton (14th) during the three-day tournament.
