FSU, ACC baseball teams to play 50-game schedule

The start of the college baseball season is two months away. And coaches got what they wanted — a 50-game season as well as a lengthy conference schedule.

Florida State baseball will play 36 ACC games over 12 weekends, according to a report by D1baseball.com’s Kendall Rogers and confirmed by coach Mike Martin Jr. to the Osceola on Friday afternoon.

Martin Jr. had openly campaigned for as many games as possible, resembling a regular season in normal years. After losing the majority of the 2020 season, which was limited to 17 games, and not being able to play other schools in the fall season, Martin Jr. and other coaches were clearly pushing for a volume of games.

The ACC has not set schedules yet. It remains to be determined if the series will maintain a traditional Friday-Saturday-Sunday format but Martin Jr. said they won’t schedule Saturday doubleheaders, which had been a consideration.

ACC schools will be able to play 14 nonconference games as midweek matchups or weekend games, preserving the chance to play Florida as well as other schools from around the Southeast.
