Ragin’ Cajuns Baseball Releases 2015 Schedule

LAFAYETTE, La. – Coming off of a NCAA Super Regional appearance a year ago, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns baseball team has released its 2015 schedule featuring 28 home games and a weekend series at Alabama, head coach Tony Robichaux announced on Thursday.

The Cajuns open the season Feb. 13-15 on the road at UTSA. The 2015 home opener is slated for Feb.20-22 as Louisiana will host 2012 College World Series participant Stony Brook at M.L. "Tigue" Moore Field.

"I think its good that we get started on the road early," Robichaux said. This team has got to get weathered having lost a lot of players to the draft last year. I think this schedule will be good because it gives us tests on the road early. We are going to have to play ourselves into a good baseball team, and this schedule gives a great opportunity to do just that."

Louisiana heads to Birmingham, Ala. from Feb. 27-March 1 to face SEC opponent Alabama in a three-game series at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium.

"We are so fortunate to have worked out a home-and-home series with Alabama," Robichaux added. "I think it was great that Mitch Gaspard and his team came here first. You don't see that very often. This road trip will put us in a regional type atmosphere. Alabama is a program with a lot of history and tradition, and facing them will only help to weather our team."

The Ragin' Cajuns have 12 in-state games on the schedule highlighted by a March 31 contest in Metairie, La. against LSU in the Wally Pontiff Classic. The Cajuns will also face Houston, who reached the Super Regionals in 2014, in a midweek game at "the Tigue" on April 7.

The conference schedule gets underway early this year with Troy coming to town for a three-game series on March 6-8 at "the Tigue". The Ragin' Cajuns will also face Arkansas State (March 27-29), newcomer Georgia Southern (April 3-5), UT Arlington (April 24-26) and South Alabama (May 8-10) at home in conference play.

Louisiana heads to conference foes UALR (March 13-15), Georgia State (March 20-22), Texas State (April 17-19), newcomer Appalachian State (May 1-3) and ULM (May 14-16) during the season. The series at the Warhawks is the season finale for the Cajuns.

"We do have two new opponents on our schedule in conference play, but our biggest opponent is going to be ourselves," Robichaux said. The bottom line is that our conference has always been good. You have to be able to play weekend after weekend and be consistent to be a champion. Last year's team was able to that and played well on the road."

The Sun Belt Conference Tournament will be held May 20-24 in Troy, Ala. For a complete schedule visit RaginCajuns.com.
