Baseball To Face Webster On Day 1 Of College World Series

BOSTON, Mass. – The 22nd/23rd ranked Beacons will be making their third appearance in the College World Series this Friday when they take on Webster University at 2:15 pm (EST) at Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The American Rivers Conference will serve as the host for the College World Series, which has a new home in 2019, after the championship series was hosted in Appleton, Wisconsin for nearly three decades.

The Beacons earned their trip to the World Series after defeating New England College in a best-of-three series at Monan Park.  Friday's contest will mark the second meeting between UMass Boston and Webster in 2019 as the two faced each other in Florida in March.

Any fan unable to make the trip out to Iowa can watch the Beacons live on www.NCAA.com
