HOBOKEN, N.J. (September 13, 2011) – As Major League and Minor League Baseball begin to wind down in September, intercollegiate baseball is just getting under way with the fall season. The Stevens Institute of Technology baseball team began their 2012 campaign this past weekend and has finalized their schedule for the upcoming year. With the departure of Rochester Institute of Technology from the Empire 8, the league and conference schedules look much different.

Instead of the normal four-game doubleheaders that the Empire 8 implemented, the conference will now go to home-at-home three-game series in 2012. The four-team conference will now play a doubleheader to start the series and follow up the next day with a nine-inning affair.

The Ducks went 14-23 overall and 6-10 in the Empire 8 last season, but first year head coach Kristaps Aldins looks to turn around a program that posted over 20 victories five of the last seven years.

“Stevens’ campus is located in one of the best areas for Division III baseball and we will look to take advantage of this by annually scheduling some of the top teams in the New York and Mid-Atlantic Region.” said Aldins.

Stevens opens up the season on the road at Kean University on February 22 for a 2:30 p.m. start. They then have a home doubleheader slated against Yeshiva University on February 26, and two other double dips against Baruch College and John Jay College on March 3 and 10, respectively, before heading to Florida for their spring trip on March 12-16 at the RussMatt Invitational.

The Ducks have seven games marked to play after returning from Florida and before Empire 8 Conference play gets underway.

Highlighting their non-conference schedule will be two games against Farmingdale State College on March 23 and March 29. Stevens travels to Farmingdale for a single game starting at 3:30 p.m. on the 23rd then plays in Hoboken against the Rams on the 29th at 7 p.m.

On March 31-April 1, Stevens entertains perennial E8 powerhouse Ithaca College for the team’s first conference action of the season. The Ducks then travel up to Utica College for their first three-game series on April 6-7 before returning back to Castle Point for a showdown with last year’s conference champion, St. John Fisher College on the 14th and 15th.

The following weekend, Stevens returns to upstate New York on April 21-22 to play the Bombers in Ithaca. After Utica makes the journey down to Hoboken on April 28-29, the Ducks take the trek up to Rochester to play the Cardinals on May 5-6 for the Empire 8 finale.
