Virginia's Orange & Blue World Series Begins Thursday
Sept. 23, 2015
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Ã¢â‚¬” The Virginia baseball team begins its annual intrasquad competition, the Orange and Blue World Series, at 4 p.m. Thursday (Sept. 24) at Davenport Field. The seven-game series runs through Oct. 20.
The Cavaliers have been split into two teams for the Orange and Blue World Series. Assistant coach Matt Kirby will coach the Blue team, while student assistant coach Greg Miclat will manage the Orange squad.
All games will consist of either seven or nine innings, which will be determined prior to each game.
The seven games will be broken up into two three-game series (Games 1-3 and Games 4-6 are separate series) as well as a stand-alone Game 7. If a given team wins the first two games of either series, the third game of that series will be played based on run differential of the first two games to allow the trailing team a chance to still win the series. Each team is encouraged to score as many runs as possible and not worry about running up the score.
In addition to the Orange & Blue World Series, Virginia has a pair of exhibition games on its fall slate, as the Cavaliers will play host to High Point on Saturday, Oct. 3, and the Ontario Blue Jays on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
There is no admission charge for any of Virginia’s exhibition games or Orange and Blue World Series contests. Free parking will be available in the University Hall lot. Fans should enter Davenport Field for all fall games along the first-base line and not the main gate. The best route to reach this entrance is by using the road adjacent to the Lannigan Field track complex.
Virginia owns the most wins in Division I baseball over the last seven seasons with 342. UVa has made four trips to the College World Series in that span, culminating with the Cavaliers’ NCAA Championship in 2015. Virginia returns 18 letterwinners from its 2015 national championship team and welcomes 18 newcomers to the program this season.
