June doesn’t usually mean an opportunity for WVU fans to watch a Mountaineer team. Football and basketball are deep into their off-seasons and the other WVU teams are out of action as well. The summer months are usually just about following professional teams and gearing up for the fall. But that’s not the case this year.

This year, the WVU baseball team is still playing, winning the program’s first NCAA Regional last weekend. And now Randy Mazey’s Mountaineers will continue on and take part in Super Regional play this coming weekend in North Carolina.

On Tuesday, the schedule for WVU’s weekend series with the Tar Heels was announced. West Virginia (36-22) will take on No. 4 North Carolina (45-14) through the weekend. First pitch for game 1 will be at 6 p.m. on Friday, game 2 will then be at 8 p.m. on Saturday and game 3 is set for Sunday at 3 p.m. All games on ESPN2. Monday is designated as a makeup day if any of the necessary games get rained out.

WVU Baseball has existed since 1892; the NCAA Baseball tournament since 1947. On Sunday, the Mountaineers advanced through the first round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history, defeating the Grand Canyon Antelopes 10-6 to move on to the Super Regional round.
