“The 2022 schedule will be another strong and challenging schedule for us this upcoming season,” DiMare said. “The ACC is one of the most prominent baseball conferences in the country, and with that our out-of-conference schedule is as strong as any other school in the nation. Our plan is that this schedule will help us challenge our team and develop us at our very best by the end of the season when the playoffs begin.”
The Hurricanes begin their 2022 campaign with 11 straight games at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
Miami begins play on Feb. 18 with the opener of a four-game series against Towson (Feb. 18-20). The Canes host fellow South Florida foe, FAU, in Coral Gables for a midweek matchup on Feb. 23 before squaring off against Harvard (Feb. 25-27).
The following weekend, rival Florida (March 4-6) comes to Mark Light Field one year after the Hurricanes started their 2021 campaign in Gainesville, taking two of three from the then-top-ranked Gators.READ MORE: Man faces several charges including pointing laser at BSO aviation unit
