TULSA, Okla. – For the second consecutive season, the Oral Roberts baseball team will compete against outside opposition during the fall season playing games Oct. 13 and Oct. 27.
As it did in fall 2018, Oral Roberts will host the Kansas Jayhawks on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 12:00 p.m.
Two weeks after playing host, ORU will travel to Manhattan, Kan., to take on the Kansas State Wildcats on Oct. 27 at 3:30 p.m.
Both exhibitions are scheduled to be 12 innings and will be free of charge.
"We are really excited to start our full workouts this fall," said head coach Ryan Folmar. "We have two games scheduled against quality opponents that will help us prepare for our spring schedule."
Along with the two exhibitions, the Golden Eagles will play a total of 8 intrasquad games on campus before closing the fall season with the Fall World Series at J.L. Johnson Stadium Nov. 7-9.
Admission is free to all intrasquad games and the Fall World Series.
Oral Roberts returns 26 players, including 16 position players and 10 pitchers. The Golden Eagles posted a 29-26 overall record in 2019, while finishing 17-12 in Summit League play.
Ryan Folmar and his staff welcome seven newcomers this season.
"We have several new players to our program that will need to fill big roles on this years' club," said Folmar. "These games will be a great opportunity for us to gain some experience before spring."
