CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The High Point University baseball team’s game against Radford on Friday, May 2, will be featured on ESPN3 as part of the Big South Conference’s spring sports package, the league announced on Thursday.
In addition, the Big South Baseball semifinals and Championship and the Big South Women’s Lacrosse Championship will also be shown on ESPN3.
The Big South Conference will have at least eight softball games, at least 10 baseball games, and the women’s lacrosse championship match telecast nationally on ESPN platforms in 2014.
Big South baseball will again be featured as part of an exclusive Friday night package on ESPN3 starting with the March 28 showdown between VMI and Gardner-Webb from John Henry Moss Stadium in Boiling Springs, N.C. at 7:00pm. ESPN3’s Friday night Big South baseball schedule continues April 4, April 18 and each Friday in May — including up to four games on Day Four of the Big South Baseball Championship on May 23. The network will be the home of the Big South baseball championship game for the fourth-straight year, as the May 24 title game will air live at 4:00pm from The Winthrop Ballpark in Rock Hill, S.C.
The Big South women’s lacrosse championship will again receive television exposure in 2014, as ESPN3 will carry the championship game on Sunday, May 4 at 2:00pm.
All of the Big South’s ESPN broadcasts can also be viewed on a new Big South-branded channel onWatchESPN.
High Point has been featured on national TV three times earlier this year as the men’s basketball team faced Georgetown on Fox Sports 1 and both Radford and Campbell on ESPNU. The HPU men’s and women’s basketball teams were also shown on ESPN3 nine times during the 2013-14 season.
