Kentucky Baseball Schedule Announced

UK Athletics

Zack Brown returns as Kentucky's Friday Starter.

Zack Brown returns as Kentucky’s Friday Starter and a projected first round pick.

As KSR’s lone baseball writer, I am stoked to say that Kentucky’s schedule was released on Christmas morning. With 17 games against ranked opponents (including eight against top three teams), #29 Kentucky will have a tough test in 2016. The Cats have invitationals in Spartansburg and San Diego in February before their home opener against Austin Peay on March 2nd. Kentucky will host Louisville, defending SEC champ Florida, South Carolina, Arkansas, and South Carolina this season. There will also be tough road series against 2015 runner-up Vanderbilt and Auburn.

Kentucky will send one of the best rotations in the country in Zack Brown, Kyle Cody, and Dustin Beggs against SEC opponents. With week games against Louisville and Cincinnati, we will see Zach Logue or other underclassmen. JaVon Shelby was named a Third Team All-American last week and will move from second to third this season.

Click here for the full schedule with game times and locations. Our previews for the league and each position group will be posted next month. I’m already juiced to get back to the Cliff this spring.

    Thanks, Trey. We UK baseball fans search for updates on this site. My only criticism of the KSR site is that too many of your bloggers waste valuable space telling us how much they dislike baseball! Hello, out there, many of us care. Dish your hate our on UL, IU, et al. Give us more hardball!!

    Agreed Indycat-they’ve got a lot of arms and some kids that can swing the bat. One thing I’ll be looking for though, is a little better execution in the fundamental department. I’ve watched this team for years, and if they have one problem year in and year out, it’s an inability to execute in scoring situations. From getting a bunt down, to hitting behind a runner, and especially getting a runner home from third with less than two out. Some situational hitting could solve a lot of problems.
