Auburn Tigers Baseball Schedule
As Spring begins to heat up, so does the college baseball season and the Auburn
Tigers once again find themselves battling for supremacy in the SSEC. The Tigers have proven to be dominant at home this season
and have a few more thrilling series taking place at Plainsman Park which will have huge implications on both the SEC Tournament
and the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers have been battling their way through a tough SEC schedule and are looking to close out
the regular season on a winning streak that will carry into the SEC Tournament and beyond. If the Tigers can peak at the right
time there is no telling how far this squad can go.
A three game series against the Mississippi State Bulldogs begins
at Plainsman Park on May 2nd and runs through the 4th. This is a huge series for the Tigers who can improve their standings
in the division as well as help themselves earn a better seed in the conference tournament with a series win against the Bulldogs.
On May 6th the Tigers take on the Bethune Cookman Wildcats at home and could really get things rolling with a win against
the Wildcats followed by another home win against the UAB Blazers on the 13th. The Tigers close out their home schedule with
a three game series against the LSU Tigers from May 15th through the 17th. If all goes well Auburn could be playing well into
June in both the SEC and NCAA Tournament.
About the Team
The Auburn Tigers are looking to make a return
to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010 when they made it to the Regional Final. First year coach Sunny Golloway
has his work cut out for him playing in the tough SEC, and a few tough losses earlier in the season could come back to haunt
the Tigers, but his team is not about to give up, especially knowing that a strong finish to the regular season and a good
run in the SEC Tournament could see the Tigers making their way to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four seasons.
These Tigers are hungry to make it to the postseason, especially as it will be the last chance for some of the squad's key
players. Get out and support the Tigers as they look to make the 2014 season one to remember.
quite compares to the long standing tradition of enjoying a college baseball game. After all, there is a reason baseball has
long been referred to as America's Pastime. From the smell of the freshly cut grass to the National Anthem echoing through
the stands and the crack of the bat as a hitter connects with a pitch, to the sight of a ball flying over the outfield wall
and the taste of a fresh hot dog or Cracker Jacks, attending a baseball game is a a sensory experience like no other and the
memories it produces will last a lifetime. The perfect day out, a college baseball game is the ultimate bonding experience
whether you are seeing the game with friends, family, or co-workers. As the innings and pitches add up everyone in attendance
can feel the intensity pick up as every pitch, run, and base runner, begin to have more and more importance. By the time the
seventh inning stretch rolls around a break from the action is welcome just to calm the nerves briefly and enjoy a traditional
song before getting right back to all the excitement for the final two and a half innings. As you file out of the stadium
after the last out you likely will already be wanting to start making plans for your next visit to Plainsman Park.
