The Knightly News Media Club has announced its broadcast schedule for the 2023 baseball season, including 12 home games from FNB Field on City Island in Harrisburg.
In 2022, Central Penn and the Harrisburg Senators partnered to allow the Knights baseball team to play many of their home games at FNB Field. This partnership helped the Knights immensely in 2022, allowing the team to have a large crowd at their home contests, leading to a college record of 16 victories.
The Knights finished strong at the end of last season, winning seven of their final 10 games. Returning this year are senior leaders Ryan Stevens, Hunter Finkey and Zach Boyer, so the outlook is bright for the Knights.
The team will have its first road game on Feb. 18 as the season kicks off against Hood College.
The Knightly News will broadcast every home game this season on their YouTube channel, including the home opener on March 18. All games will be available on-demand after the game has concluded.
Each home game that the Knights play this year will be a doubleheader. FNB Field Home game dates are March 18, 22 and 31, April 18 and 21, and May 2. The Knights will also play a doubleheader at In the Net Sports Complex in Palmyra on April 4. Check the schedule for times of the individual games.
The broadcast will be anchored by Knightly News Club Co-Adviser Paul Miller and Associate Professor of English Thomas Davis. Also, guest appearances from former Knightly News President Tyler Coleman and Career Services Director Steve Hassinger are planned for this season.
