A big weekend for the UConn baseball team; the Huskies host Wichita State in a 3 game series.
All games are being played at Dunkin Donuts Park in Harford.
CT head coach Jim Penders and his team go into the series with the Shockers with a 27-18 record.
Penders is closing in on the program’s all-time head coach.
His 552 career wins are 4 shy of tying the great Andy Baylock, a man he played for and later became and assistant under.
Penders loves being a Husky. Penders is in his 16th season as head coach.
As for the game, it was a chilly night at Dunkin Donuts park for game 1 on Friday night, but we still had some hearty fans for game one of a three game series with Wichita State.
