the Florida State Seminoles, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, the Miami Hurricanes, the North Carolina Tar Heels, the North
Carolina State Wolfpack, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Pittsburgh Panthers, the Virginia Cavaliers, the Virginia Tech
Hokies, and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. In addition to the conference games you can be sure that there will be plenty of
other great college baseball teams coming to Louisville to take on the Cardinals in the 2015 season. There is no time like
the present to head out and support the Cardinals during their first season in the ACC. Tickets to see the Cardinals playing

The history of Louisville Cardinals dates back more than a century to 1909 and during that time the Cardinals
have made three appearances in the College World Series including in the last two seasons. After making it to the College
World Series in 2013 and 2014 you can be sure that the Cardinals are looking to make it back to the tournament and not come
home with anything short of a National Championship.
Louisville Cardinals ACC Baseball
Cardinals have joined the ACC for all sports and will participate in the conference for baseball for the first time during
the 2015 season. Two years ago the ACC was ranked as the top conference in all of baseball and has only become stronger with
the addition of the Louisville Cardinals who participated in the 2013 College World Series. Additionally, the ACC has been
ranked in the top 3 of all of college baseball the past several years. Schools from the ACC have won the College World Series
five times and appeared in the College World Series 88 times. Wake Forest won one of the championships for the conference
while the Miami Hurricanes have won the other four. The conference is divided into two divisions; the Atlantic Division which
contains Boston College, Clemson, Florida State, Louisville, NC State, Notre Dame, and Wake Forest, while the Coastal Division
is home to Duke, Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Virginia, and Virginia Tech,
is nothing that quite matches the experience of 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 multi-sensory
experience like no other and is capable of producing memories that will last a lifetime. The perfect day out, a college baseball
game is the perfect bonding experience whether you are seeing the game with family, friends, or co-workers. As the pitches
and innings add up everyone in attendance can feel the intensity build as every pitch, run, and base runner, begin to have
added 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 Jim Patterson Stadium.
Currently former head coach Lelo Prado is the Cardinals' all-time leader
in wins with the 320 he compiled while managing Louisville from 1996 through 2006.
