The Maryland baseball team was the only sport to not have their schedule released heading into this week, but its season slate was finally announced yesterday.
Starting on March 5 against Michigan State, the team will play in a conference-only schedule consisting of 44 total games.
This season, Big Ten teams will compete in “pod weekends” where three different teams will play one another twice. Maryland will have one pod weekend in March and two in April.
In order to make their first postseason appearance since 2017, the Terps will have only have the regular season to rely on as the Big Ten tournament won’t happen this year.
Four Maryland players are ranked in D1Baseball’s preseason power rankings, the most out of any other Big Ten school. First baseman Maxwell Costes is the highest-ranked Terp and first baseman on top of being named a Preseason All-American.
