Wichita State released its 2011 baseball schedule today. Check it out here.
A three-game series at Tulane, two against Arizona at Eck, four games at Oregon and four at Hawaii highlight the early season games. Home games start at 6:30 p.m., which is new. With the new bats, games may be done by 8:30. Nebraska, ORU, OSU, KU and K-State continue their usual series. Two games with OSU, which is always good to see. Illinois State visits April 22-24. For the first time, that’s a series people will look forward to. The uneven MVC schedule flips in WSU’s favor this season with four home series and three on the road. WSU doesn’t play back-to-back road series. Last season, WSU played four on the road and endured a stretch of three of four weekends away from home.
