Boston College baseball is set for a three-game series against Duke for the Eagles’ first ranked matchup of the season.
Birdball has not been to the College World Series since 2016, but the Eagles have a strong case this season on the back of their trio of star juniors.
In an opening-day doubleheader, Boston College baseball combined for 24 runs compared to the Buccaneers’ five to sweep the day.
Birdball had not one, but three incredibly talented freshmen who didn’t go through the typical adjustment period and instead rose to the occasion, co-winning the breakout athlete of the year award.
After an excellent senior season for the Eagles, Dan Metzdorf was selected in the fifth round of the MLB draft Tuesday by the Chicago White Sox. The senior went 8-2 with a 2.30 ERA in 2019.
After Clemson erased a deficit with a three-run eighth, BC struck for two runs in the top of the 11th and knocked off the eighth-seeded Tigers in their ACC Tournament opener.
The Eagles, who slipped in as the No. 12 seed, open up the ACC Tournament against the eighth seed in Clemson—a team that took two of three from BC earlier this year.
Dan Metzdorf earned an All-ACC First Team nod and four of his teammates made their way onto teams as well in a record-breaking number of honorees, the conference announced on Monday afternoon.
