VESTAL (WBNG) — The Binghamton baseball team has made four trips to the NCAA Tournament as America East Champions since 2009. The Bearcats have also won six regular season conference titles since 2007. That’s a lot of success, so last season’s 18-30-1 record came as quite a surprise to everyone.
Now after an entire offseason to think about its last place conference finish, Binghamton opens the 2019 season on Friday against the Michigan Wolverines in Port St. Lucie, Florida at the New York Mets spring training facility. The Wolverines are a big test to start the season with for a group of Bearcats eager to put 2018 in the past.
“I’m excited,” said Binghamton senior outfielder Anthony Meduri. “I think we’ve got a really good team this year. We’ve got a good combination of young talent and some older guys who have seen what it takes to win an America East Championship. With the combination of those two, I think we’re looking pretty good this year.”
Binghamton and Michigan throw out the first pitch on Friday from Port. St. Lucie, Florida at 1 p.m.
