Baylor set to open baseball season

WACO, Texas The Baylor baseball team opens the season Friday at home in the first of three games against Holy Cross.

Baylor opens the season with huge expectations this year. They have gotten a lot of preseason ink in the national publications. Two Bears have earned preseason All-American honors. They've also been ranked in several preseason national polls.

The Bears are facing a team from Massachusetts in the opener and that means it's an advantage for Baylor because Holy Cross hasn't spent a lot of time working out outdoors so far this spring.

The season opener is set for 7pm Friday night.
