2021 FAMU baseball scheduled unveiled
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Florida A&M baseball team is set to play 56 games this upcoming 2021 season.
The Rattlers schedule is highlighted by three matchups in Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators and a neutral-site matchup against future conference foe Grambling State in suburban Atlanta.
FAMU’s season starts with eight-straight road games, with opening day coming on Friday, February 19 at Stetson, the first of a four-game series against the Hatters. The Rattlers then head to Tampa for a four-game slate against the South Florida Bulls from Feb. 26-28.
The Rattlers’ home opener comes against the University of North Florida on Tuesday, March 2 before heading to Gainesville for two games against Florida (March 5 & 7) and Jacksonville University (March 6-7).
After their Gainesville stint, the Rattlers will head to the Peach State for a midweek series against Mercer on Wednesday, March 10 before playing a three-game series at Coolray Field in Atlanta, the home of the Gwinnett Stripers Minor League Baseball club, against Grambling State from March 12-14.
Upon returning from Atlanta, the Fangs will face their longest homestand of the season, with a two-game series against Mercer (March 16-17) and a three-game series against Florida Gulf Coast (March 19-21) leading up to the start of MEAC play, when North Carolina A&T comes to town on March 26-28.
FAMU will host three more conference series after their duel with the Aggies: Norfolk State (April 9-11), North Carolina Central (April 23-25) and another home series against A&T (May 7-9).
The Fangs hit the road for four MEAC series: North Carolina Central (April 1-3), North Carolina A&T (April 16-18), Norfolk State (April 30-May 2) and the season-ending series against NC Central (May 13-15).
All MEAC series in 2021 are four-game series, with doubleheaders scheduled on Saturday.
