Maryland baseball released its schedule for the 2022 season earlier this week.
The Terps will play 14 games against RPI top-50 opponents this season, with matchups scheduled against Baylor, Campbell, Dallas Baptist, East Carolina and VCU, per the release.
It kicks its season off with a trip on Feb. 18 to Texas for a series against the Baylor Bears. The Terps will then welcome fans back to Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium for the first time in nearly two years when UMBC comes to College Park on Feb. 22.
Maryland will have Big Ten home series against Penn State (Apr. 1-3), Ohio State (Apr. 15-17), Northwestern (Apr. 29-May 1) and Michigan (May 13-15). The program will finish its home slate against James Madison on May 17 before heading to play Purdue on the road that weekend in the regular season finale. The Big Ten Tournament will be in Omaha, Nebraska from May 24-29.
Last season was a positive step for Rob Vaughn, who will enter his fifth season as Maryland’s head coach. Maryland was ranked for the first time since 2017 and finished second in the Big Ten, the program’s highest conference finish since 1980. With a 30-18 record (18-4 in the last 22 games), the Terps were invited to the NCAA tournament and advanced to the regional final before falling short against East Carolina.
