The LSU Tigers baseball team has a lot to be excited about heading into the 2022 season. A new head coach, a slew of highly touted new players, and now, we know who they'll be playing.

The program announced yesterday its 2022 schedule.

The 56 game schedule kicks off on Friday, February 18 when the Tigers host Maine in a three-game series at Alex Box Stadium.

It will also be the first game in purple and gold for Jay Johnson, who was named the Tigers' head coach in June after leading Arizona to a berth in the College World Series.

The non-conference schedule is also highlighted by a trip to Minute Maid Park in Houston for the annual Shriners Hospital for Children College Classic. This will be LSU's fourth appearance in the event since 2015. They'll face Oklahoma on Friday, March 4 at 3:00 pm; Texas on Saturday, March 5 at 7:00 pm; and Baylor on Sunday, March 6 at 7:00 pm.

LSU will play nearly half of its regular-season games against teams that participated in the 2021 NCAA Tournament.

SEC conference play begins with a home series against Texas A&M on March 18.

Additionally, the Tigers will play two fall exhibition games at home against UNO on Sunday, November 7 and against UL on Sunday, November 14.
