The University of Louisville baseball team’s 2018 radio schedule was released Thursday afternoon, highlighted by the return of 93.9 The Ville as flagship station for the fourth consecutive season.
Radio coverage will be provided for most regular season games as well as all postseason games for the Cardinals during the 2018 season with most of those airing on 93.9 The Ville. Selected games within the regular season will be broadcast on 1450 WXVW.
ESPN Louisville, the group behind local stations ESPN 680 and 105.7 FM, launched 93.9 The Ville, powered by ESPN, on Jan. 29, 2015. The station provides coverage of the Cardinals through an official partnership with Louisville Sports Properties, which represents U of L athletics.
After advancing to the College World Series for the fourth time in school history and winning its third straight ACC Atlantic Division championship in 2017, the Louisville baseball team enters 2018 ranked in the top 25 in five preseason polls, including No. 13 in the USA Today Top 25 coaches poll. With Sean Moth calling the action again this season, the radio schedule includes road games at Wake Forest, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt as well as home games against North Carolina, Texas Tech, Clemson, NC State, Virginia and Notre Dame.
The No. 13 Cardinals will open the 2018 season on 93.9 FM on Friday, Feb. 16 at noon ET against Richmond in the first of three weekend games at Charleston Crab House Challenge in Charleston, South Carolina. Louisville will also play The Citadel on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 3 p.m., and George Mason on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 11 a.m., with both of those games also slated for radio coverage on 93.9 The Ville.
