UCF Knights Baseball TicketsEstablished in 1973, the University of Central Florida Knights have regularly ranked among the top teams in the NCAA. In 1983, the program hired coach Jay Bergman, who helped lead the team to eight Atlantic Sun Championships and nine NCAA Regional Tournaments. Terry Rooney assumed head coaching duties in 2009 and twice managed an RPI finish in NCAA Division I in the Top 25. Head Coach Greg Lovelady took over in 2017 and has kept the team in the Top 50 RPI but has yet to manage a Top 25 percentage year,] even in 2017, when the team placed No. 1 in the conference. In 2006, the Knights moved from the Atlantic Sun Conference to Conference USA. They transitioned again in 2013 to the American Athletic Conference. This Orlando, Fla., university team has produced more than 100 Major League draftees. Buy your UCF Knights Baseball tickets today at StubHub.
What is the competition field like in the American Athletic Conference?The University of Central Florida Knights have some hearty competition in the AAC Division I competition. In 2013, the NCAA rearranged and realigned many of its conferences, including the AAC, which received members of three other conferences. The realignment distributed membership to institutions all along the East Coast. The conference now includes powerhouse teams like the University of Connecticut Huskies, Temple Owls, Cincinnati Bearcats and Memphis Tigers. The AAC still includes UCF's archrival, the University of South Florida Bulls.
What is the seating capacity of the UCF Knights baseball stadium?The Knights opened their baseball stadium, Jay Bergman Field, in 2001. This on-campus facility, also known as John Euliano Park, seats 3,600 individuals.
How many Major League players has UCF produced?While UCF has had 122 players drafted, only 14 have played pro ball in the last decade. Some of these players have served on farm teams, and some have played in the MLB. Recent MLB players from UCF include pitchers Ben Lively, Eric Skoglund, Cody Allen, Danny Winkler, Chasen Bradford, Mike Maroth and Matt Fox, who also plays third base. Their catchers have included Drew Butera — also a first baseman — and Beau Taylor. UCF Knight Dylan Moore was drafted as a third and second baseman, and so was second baseman Darnell Sweeney, who also plays left field. Clay Timpner and Esix Snead play outfield and center field, while Chad Mottola plays outfield and right field.
Which team is the University of Central Florida’s biggest rival?As one of the top schools in the NCAA baseball rankings, UCF has many teams eyeing its ranking, but its biggest rival is the University of South Florida.
