CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia baseball head coach Brian O’Connor unveiled the Cavaliers’ 2018 fall schedule that includes two home scrimmages. UVA will begin fall practice on Friday, Sept. 14.

New NCAA legislation allows Division I programs to play fall exhibitions that don’t count against the 56-game spring schedule. Previously, schools were allowed to play games in the fall, but they counted against the team’s 56-game slate in the spring.
