CollegeExactly 5 months to the day since Team Israel won the Qualifying game of the final World Baseball Classic Qualifier, baseball will finally be returning to MCU Park.

On Saturday, the Baruch College Bearcats will face off against the SUNY – Old Westbury Panthers to open the season. This will also be a chance for a rare February baseball game in New York City.

The opening game of the doubleheader will start at 12:00 PM, with the second game scheduled for 3:00 PM. Admission to the games are free, with gates opening around 11:30 AM.

The weather forecast does call for some rain, but forecasts can change.

To stay up to date, check the Baruch Athletic Website, Twitter & Facebook. Updates will also be available on Brooklyn Baseball Banter’s Twitter & in REAL BKLYN CYCLONES FANS
