UNC Baseball: 2020 Schedule

New, 1 comment

The Tar Heels opened the 2020 season yesterday with a win against Middle Tennessee.

The 2020 baseball season for the North Carolina Tar Heels started Friday afternoon against Middle Tennessee, and they came away with a 15-3 victory. Expectations are once again high for UNC, in spite of the disheartening news about right-handed starting pitcher Gianluca Dalatri’s elbow fracture.

Below are the preseason rankings for Carolina:

  • ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll: 16
  • Baseball America: 18
  • Collegiate Baseball: 13
  • National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association: 19
  • D1Baseball: 23

In the preseason poll of the ACC coaches, North Carolina is projected to finish second in the Coastal Division and received one ACC Championship vote.

There are several ACC opponents ranked in the preseason. The preseason favorite for the ACC Championship is Louisville and the Cardinals are ranked first in the nation in Collegiate Baseball and D1Baseball preseason polls.

Carolina will play Duke, Miami, NC State, Wake Forest in conference weekend series this season. These teams are ranked in preseason polls.

UNC will play two more teams that are in some preseason polls. The Heels will play ECU twice, once in Chapel Hill and once in Greenville, and will host Dallas Baptist for a weekend series later in February.

The Tar Heels will open the year with a 9-game homestand. At the end of the month, the Tar Heels will travel to Minnesota and join the Blue Devils and Wolfpack in the Cambria College Classic against Big Ten opponents Minnesota, Iowa, and Purdue. The round-robin tournament will be played in U.S. Bank Stadium.

Carolina will battle the other Big Four teams on the road this season and will play nine in-state, non conference teams including Elon, High Point, NC A&T, UNCG, Gardner-Webb, UNCW, ECU, Campbell, and Appalachian State.

Once again this season, Carolina will play South Carolina in Uptown Charlotte at BB&T Ballpark, home of the Triple-A Charlotte Knights.

Below is the full schedule for the 2020 season:
