The 2019 College World Series finalists — champion Vanderbilt and runner-up Michigan — will be heading to a UH baseball calendar.
The Rainbow Warriors will play Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn., in March in the first year of a home-and-home series. Mike Trapasso said the Commodores initiated the contact. Thirteen Commodores recently were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
In 2021, Michigan is set to visit the ‘Bows for a series at Les Murakami Stadium.
The ‘Bows had hoped to finalize the 2020 schedule this week. But a recent withdrawal will delay the release for a little bit.
The ‘Bows’ 2020 roster will include their top three starting pitchers (Cade Smith, Aaron Davenport, Logan Pouelsen) from a year ago, as well as the return of center fielder Adam Fogel and second baseman Dustin Demeter. A shoulder injury shortened Fogel’s 2019 season to 11 games. Demeter missed the entire season after undergoing surgery to both hips.
