Spartans Open MEAC Baseball Tournament Play Friday

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

The Norfolk State baseball team opens play in the 2016 MEAC Baseball Championship this Friday at 3:30 p.m. at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, Md. NSU (27-19), which receives a first-round bye, will face the winner of a Thursday opening round game between Bethune-Cookman (South No. 2) and Coppin State (North No. 3).
The tournament consists of six teams and is played in a double-elimination format at Perdue Stadium, home of the single-A Delmarva Shorebirds. Tickets are $8 per day or $25 for a tournament pass. 
NSU and Southern Division regular-season champion Florida A&M have Thursday off by virtue of winning their divisions. Delaware State earned the No. 2 seed from the North, while CSU is third. FAMU, Bethune-Cookman and North Carolina Central round out the field from the South. Maryland Eastern Shore, North Carolina A&T and Savannah State did not qualify for the championship.
The Spartans won the MEAC Northern Division regular-season title for the second year in a row. NSU matched last year’s team for the most overall wins (27) and MEAC victories (19) in the program’s Division I era. NSU is still seeking its first-ever MEAC tournament title and accompanying berth in the NCAA Division I Championship.

Live statistics for all games will be available through the MEAC web site ( and the NSU athletics web site ( Follow @SpartanBSB on Twitter for live in-game updates.
