The Valparaiso University baseball program has released its schedule for the 2017 season. The Crusaders will begin the new campaign on Feb. 17 at Western Kentucky for the first of a three-game series, the first meeting between the two teams since 2002. The series will take place at newly-renovated Nick Denes Field in Bowling Green, Ky.
The Valparaiso University baseball team has inked three players to National Letters of Intent for the 2018 season. Head coach Brian Schmack and his staff will welcome junior college transfer Blake Billinger (Los Gato, Calif. / Mountain West [Mission College]) and true freshmen Zach Orn (Royville, Ind. / Eastside) and Andy Samuelson (LaPorte, Ind. / LaPorte) to the program next year.
With the World Series set to begin on Tuesday night in Cleveland, it’s time for the Valparaiso University baseball team to weigh in. Members of the 2017 Crusaders offer their prognostication of what will unfold this week between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs.
