Diamond Dogs set to host PAC 12 foe Oregon in season opener
The Fresno State baseball team has it's eyes on the skies this weekend. The Bulldogs are set to open their new season with a four game series against Oregon - if the weather cooperates. Assuming they do get in some games, it will mark the first time the Diamond Dogs will have opened against a Power 5 school since 2010.
The opportunity to host the Ducks is not something Fresno State takes lightly. Wearing a shirt that read, 'GRIT' across the chest, senior Austin Guibor said, "they got the big name, they got the Nike contract, they got all the different uniforms and stuff, but I think we bring a little more toughness to the table."
Head coach Mike Batesole added, "We don't have our school's fight song going down the pinstripes of our pants - but that doesn't mean that we don't have good, tough baseball players."
The games are scheduled for 6:05 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 1:05 p.m. Sunday, and then again at 6:05 p.m. Monday night.
