The Complete Schedule For ACC Baseball Tournament Announced

This morning the complete schedule for the first ever ACC Tournament at Louisville Slugger Field was announced. Louisville is your #1 overall seed by winning the regular season by 1/2 game over Coastal Division Champion UNC. The Cards play Thursday at 7pm vs Notre Dame then Friday at 3 vs FSU.

So here’s the deal. The winner of each pool advances to a 4 team elimination bracket. Here’s how those 4 teams are determined. Each team plays both teams in their pods. The team with the best record will win that pod. If there is a tie with the same record the team with the highest ACC winning percentage advances to bracket play. Which would be the highest seeded team per Kelly Dickey. If you have any questions about the ACC Tournament feel free to contact us on Twitter at @CardSportsZone @GeneralWasp @kruegermania or @Jeremy_CSZ or on Facebook at Cardinal Sports Zone.

Senior Day For UofL Baseball

Despite the gloomy circumstances & ultimately the cancellation of game 3 vs FSU, the Cardinals still honored their seniors. Last year the theme of departing players was the draft. This year the theme of the Senior class is dependability. Lyman, Taylor,Summers & Sparger are the glue guys that every team needs to be champions. That was proven year after year. Congrats to all of our Seniors!
