Time was, the fall semester didn’t see much Illinois Baseball action outside of one intrasquad series. Sure, they held daily practice out on Illinois Field which culminated with the annual Orange and Blue World Series but that was about it.
Seems that things are changing.
This fall, in addition to the usual baseball activities, Illinois fans will be treated to two games against other teams. On September 16th, the Illini will take on the Prairie Stars of our sister campus University of Illinois-Springfield. The next weekend on September 23rd, Illinois will host the Sycamores of Indiana State.
The Orange and Blue World Series will commence the following Wednesday and finish that weekend.
Here is the full Fall ‘17 schedule:
- Saturday, September 16 – vs. Illinois-Springfield (11 a.m.)
- Saturday, September 23 – vs. Indiana State (12:15 p.m.)
- Wednesday, September 27 – Orange and Blue World Series
- Friday, September 29 – Orange and Blue World Series
- Saturday, September 30 – Orange and Blue World Series
All games are free to the public. It’s the best show in town! Get out and support the team!
