GC baseball releases 2015 schedule

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (GC ATHLETICS RELEASE) – Highlighted by 29 home games and four nationally-ranked opponents, the Georgia College baseball program and head coach Tom Carty released the 2015 schedule Tuesday.

The Bobcat baseball slate starts as it often does, a showdown with perennial powerhouse No. 2 University of Tampa Feb. 7-8. The Bobcats were one of just two teams to beat the Spartans during the regular season last year.

The home-opener comes the following Tuesday, Feb. 10 at 3 p.m. against Newberry College. Peach Belt Conference (PBC) action opens on the road, a three-game set at Flagler College Feb. 21-22. The Bobcats also travel to No. 24 USC Aiken to close out the month of February with another three-game conference series.

No. 12 Columbus State University is the featured opponent for the first PBC home series, a single Friday matchup March 11 at 4 p.m. with a 1 p.m. doubleheader March 12.

The Bobcats have a solid seven-game home stretch in late March, three bouts each with the University of Montevallo and Barry University sandwiching a single contest against Erskine College. The Montevallo series March 20-22 will also be this year’s Alumni Weekend, complete with honoring the fifth anniversary of the World Series Bobcat team from 2010.

Tuesday, April 7 will be Georgia College’s Annual Miracle League game, this time taking on Emmanuel College.

The final ranked opponent of the season comes in the form of PBC Champion No. 4 Lander University April 10-12 on the road.

The Bobcats will honor their senior class at the final home contest of the year, Sunday, May 2 at 1 p.m. against GRU Augusta.

Georgia College went 35-17 in 2014, advancing to the NCAA Southeast Regional Tournament for the second-straight season.
