SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah baseball team hosts its second-straight home weekend series with a non-conference slate against Nevada beginning on Friday, April 25, at 6:00 p.m. MT. The Utes and Wolf Pack play a doubleheader on Saturday, April 26 beginning at 1:00 p.m. MT, with game four of the series on Sunday, April 27 at 12:00 p.m. MT.
Utah continues its season-long baseball card promotion this weekend, with the first 500 fans on Friday receiving Dallas Carroll and Kyle Hoffman baseball cards. The first 500 games on Saturday will receive Cory Hunt and Zach Jones baseball cards while Luke West will be featured on Sunday.
Friday is World Record Night and at the game several world records will be attempted including most baseballs held in a glove, fastest female pitch, most people whistling, most people unwrapping candy simultaneously and most people performing lunges.
"We need to play well in these four non-conference games this weekend and get back on track," Utah head coach Bill Kinneberg said. "I thought we swung the bats better against Utah Valley but we still have to play better."
Utah is 12-24 overall and 3-15 in the Pac-12.
Kinneberg will be going for his 500th career win. He enters the weekend with a 499-505 career record over 19 seasons, which includes 11 seasons at Utah. He also served as head coach at UTEP and Wyoming.
Nevada is 21-17 overall and 13-9 in the Mountain West. The Wolf Pack have recently dropped three of their last five games, including winning two of three against Fresno State and falling to San Francisco in a pair of weekday games.
