INDIANAPOLIS - On Tuesday, April 17, two of Indiana's best college baseball programs take the field in downtown Indianapolis as Indiana University hosts the University of Notre Dame at Victory Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m., with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale today.
Victory Field has hosted Indiana University baseball games each of the last three years. Last season, Indiana walked off Ball State in a thrilling 10-inning, 4-3 victory. In 2016, Notre Dame blanked Indiana 5-0. In 2015, the Hoosiers orchestrated a dramatic, come-from-behind victory in the bottom of the ninth, beating the Fighting Irish 6-5.
Both teams share a storied baseball rivalry that dates back to 1898. The Fighting Irish lead the all-time series 68-33-1 and have won seven of the last eight meetings after Indiana won 10 straight from 1984-89. Indiana is coming off a 34-24-2 campaign and seventh NCAA appearance in school history, while Notre Dame looks to bounce back from a 26-32 season with hopes of reaching the NCAA Tournament for a 23rd time.
