Full Slate of HBCU Baseball Action This Weekend

This weekend, Historically Black College and University (HBCU) baseball teams will be in action with scheduled games giving fans a peek at how the season may shake out. Some teams will be looking to maintain HBCU Baseball rankings and stay in Black College Nines Top 10 poll.

Several ranked HBCU baseball small schools have three-game weekend series with top ranked NAIA baseball programs. Black College Nines’ No. 1 ranked Edward Waters visits the NAIA No. 12 ranked team, Keiser University, while our No. 5 ranked Florida Memorial hosts the NAIA No. 3 ranked Southeastern University and BCN’s No. 3 Talladega hosts another NAIA ranked team in No. 13 University of Mobile.

In the large school division, the battle of the Carolina’s could settle who finishes at the top of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC). North Carolina A&T visits North Carolina Central. There’s a big match in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) too. It does not get any better than this. Grambling State versus Arkansas-Pine Bluff in Grambling, La. How will each series play out? There are a few other interesting matchups. The battle of Alabama pits Alabama State at Alabama A&M and Bethune-Cookman squares off with host Florida A&M.  And in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC), Morehouse faces Albany State, who received votes in BCN’s latest HBCU baseball top ten poll?

With the way this season has gone so far, don’t be shocked if there is a change in the landscape of HBCU baseball as we head into a new Top 10 poll on Tuesday, April 17. Black College Nines (BCN) will release its third regular season polls, which will ultimately determine our HBCU baseball champions.
