Virginia Faces High Point Friday in Fall Exhibition
Oct. 15, 2015
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia baseball team plays High Point at 6 p.m. Friday (Oct. 16) in a fall exhibition game at Davenport Field. The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a national championship commemorative poster.
There is no admission charge for any of Virginia’s fall exhibition or Orange and Blue World Series games. Free parking is 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.
Concessions and merchandise stands also will be open Friday and for the remaining Orange & Blue World Series games.
Per NCAA regulations, the Cavaliers’ fall exhibition game with High Point will count toward Virginia’s 56-game regular season for the 2016 season, but the outcome of the game will not be included in the Cavaliers’ win-loss record in 2016. UVA will play 55 regular-season games in the spring.
High Point finished with a 29-26 overall record in 2015, its second-straight winning season. The Panthers return 22 letterwinners, led by All-Big South selection Josh Greene.
Virginia wraps up its fall baseball schedule over the next few days as it resumes its intrasquad Orange & Blue World Series with Game 6 at 1 p.m. Sunday. Game 7 will be played at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
