Pitt's baseball program has qualified for the Big East Baseball Championships this week. The Panthers barely reached the tournament and will enter as the No. 8 seed. Pitt finished the season 28-26 (10-17 in conference) and has struggled a bit compared to their success in recent years.â†µ
Pitt needed to win their final game against the Louisville Cardinals last week, but failed to do so. But with losses by Villanova and West Virginia, the Panthers backed their way into the tournament. Somewhat ironically, they'll face Louisville in their first game as the Cardinals are the top seed.
Pitt will square off against Louisville on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. Depending on the outcome of that game, they'll take on either No. 4 seed South Florida or No. 5 seed UConn on Thursday.â†µ
Here's the full schedule of games and events surrounding the entire event.â†µ
