Valparaiso University coach Tracy Woodson has released the 2010 baseball schedule, which has the Crusaders playing 20 home games at Emory G. Bauer Field in addition to three games at the U.S. Steel Yard in Gary, Ind.

Valpo will face a pair of Big Ten foes in Indiana (Apr. 13) and Northwestern (May 4) at the U.S. Steel Yard in addition to an April 28 game against Notre Dame.  The Crusaders will also be hosting the Horizon League Championships at the home of the Gary SouthShore RailCats May 26-30 this season.

The season gets underway on February 19 with a three-game series against McNeese State in Lake Charles, La. Valpo will play its first 23 games away from home, including a tournament hosted by Jacksonville that also includes Oklahoma.  Valpo has a two-game mid-week series at South Carolina in early March in addition to weekend series at Gardner-Webb and Southeast Missouri State.
