Big West Announces Spring Television Schedule On ESPNU
The Big West Conference today announced that ESPNU will nationally televise two baseball games and two softball contests this spring.
Three of the top four teams in the Big West Baseball Preseason Coaches poll will be highlighted. Cal State Fullerton is the favorite to win the 2019 title. The Titans open the ESPNU package at Cal Poly on Saturday, April 6 for an 8:00 p.m. first pitch. It is the second straight year that Cal Poly will host a nationally televised game at Baggett Stadium. The Mustangs were picked to finish fourth in the preseason poll.
CSF makes a second appearance on Thursday, May 16, rekindling one of the nation’s most prestigious rivalries with Long Beach State. The Titans and Dirtbags renew their annual battle for the Big West title at 7:00 p.m. CSF won the conference championship last season while LBSU emerged on top in 2017.
ESPNU will feature two softball telecasts at Long Beach State. The first will take place on Sunday, April 14 at 4:00 pm. versus rival Cal State Fullerton. The Titans are the three-time reigning Big West champions with accompanying NCAA Tournament appearances in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The Beach have reached the NCAA’s in two of the last three years.
