Lions Baseball Returns Home This Weekend

After a month of playing baseball in Florida, Texas, and South Carolina (and a game in Pittsburgh), the Nittany Lions make their home debut this weekend with a four-game set against Hofstra.

The team started off the season hot with extra inning wins over Cincinnati and Seton Hall, as well as losing a heartbreaker to Notre Dame in extras. Since then, though, the team has hit a rough patch with a losing streak of seven games sandwiched between a pair of two game winning streaks. The Lions have dropped their last three, and they hope that the friendly confines of Medlar Field can mend their 6-11 record and provide that spark to make a run at a Big Ten title.

A player to keep an eye on is junior catcher Ben Heath. In the very young season, he already has 7 home runs and 22 runs batted in. His 7 dingers are more than any Nittany Lion had all of last year.

While there is a chance for showers for today’s 3:35pm first pitch, Saturday and Sunday should be beautiful days to go out to the ballpark with sunny skies and highs near 50. Games start at 12:05pm on Saturday and Sunday, with Saturday’s tilt being a doubleheader.
