FULLERTON, Calif. – The Cal State Fullerton baseball program released its two-game 2018 fall schedule on Monday. The Titans will travel to the desert to take on Arizona on Oct. 28th and they'll host New Mexico State on Nov. 3 at Goodwin Field. Admission to Fullerton's fall contest is free.
The Titans will open up their fall slate against Pac-12 power Arizona on Sunday, Oct. 28th at noon out at Sloan Park in Mesa, Arizona. The park serves as the Spring Training home of the Chicago Cubs. The stadium also serves as the home of the Arizona League Cubs of the Arizona League and the Mesa Solar Sox of the Arizona Fall League.
The Wildcats are coming off a 2018 campaign that saw them go 34-22 overall and 14-16 in Pac-12 play, good enough for sixth in the conference. Arizona just missed out on qualifying for the NCAA postseason last season, but was in the College World Series Finals as recently as 2016. The Wildcats are led by head coach Jay Johnson.
Last time these two sides, the Titans managed to upset then ranked No. 12 Arizona 4-0 on March 15th, 2017 at Goodwin Field.
Fullerton will close out the fall slate with another tough opponent in New Mexico State on Saturday, Nov. 3 at noon out at Goodwin Field. The Aggies are coming off a 2018 season that saw them finish 40-22 overall to go along with a Western Athletic Conference mark of 17-7. New Mexico State finished second in the WAC just behind Grand Canyon, but earned an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament by winning the WAC Tournament title.
Cal State Fullerton is primed for a strong 2019 campaign after falling just one win shy of reaching their 19th College World Series in program history a year ago. The Titans' 2018 recruiting class is ranked 16th highest in the country according to Baseball America.
The incoming class made up off 18 newcomers (12 freshmen and six junior college transfers) is tops in the Big West Conference and the fourth highest on the West Coast according to the rankings, falling just behind UCLA, Arizona and USC.
