USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force baseball released its 2013 schedule, announced today by head coach Mike Kazlausky. The Falcons will play in nine different states in their 54-game schedule. The Falcons open the season Feb. 15 at UTSA.
Air Force will also play an exhibition game this Fall at UNLV on Nov. 4.
The Air Force Academy Baseball team is excited for the opportunity to once again travel across our great country to play our opponents," Kazlausky said. "This Fall, we will travel to Las Vegas to play an exhibition game against UNLV on 4 Nov. For the Spring, we have 11 trips scheduled from the states of Florida, to Texas, to California and everywhere in between! The Air Force Academy is a leadership school and this allows our Cadets the ability to see and observe the different regions of our country. This also enables the Air Force Academy and our baseball program the exposure it rightly deserves as being touted as one of the greatest institutions in the country."
The Falcons will host 20 home games, including home-and-home series against all five Mountain West opponents.
