There is a new era starting today for the McNeese Baseball program as new head coach Justin Hill will take the field for the first time as the head man for the squad.

Hill replaces Terry Burrows who resigned at the end of last year.  We also kick of another great season of broadcasting McNeese baseball here on Cajun Radio.

The McNeese Cowboys season starts tonight here in Lake Charles when they take on Chicago State at 6:00 p.m. at Cowboy diamond.

We will be broadcasting all the McNeese baseball games that do not conflict with the current basketball season going on.

McNeese was already set to host a season-opening three-game series against Chicago State.  Now joining the duo for a seven-game, three-day classic will be SEC member Missouri and 2009 College World Series participant Southern Mississippi.

“This is great opportunity for our program and players to host these three teams,” said McNeese head coach Justin Hill. “We are very grateful that Chicago State agreed to play Missouri and Southern Miss on such short notice.”

The three-day round robin tournament kicks off on Friday at 6 p.m. with an originally scheduled game between the Cowboys and Chicago State.

Saturday will feature three games that will give fans thinking an NCAA regional setting as Southern Miss is scheduled to face Missouri at 11 a.m.  The 3 p.m. game will match McNeese against Missouri while the nightcap features Chicago State vs. Southern Miss at 7.

The Classic will conclude on Sunday with Missouri taking on Chicago State at 1 p.m. and McNeese vs. Southern Miss following at 4:30.
