ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis baseball head coach Darin Hendrickson announced the Billikens' schedule today.

Saint Louis begins the season with two tournaments. The first, the Diamond 9 Invitational in Kissimmee, Fla., has the Billikens playing Old Dominion, Pitt and Toledo Feb. 16-18. The following weekend, Saint Louis heads to San Antonio, Texas, for the Irish Alamo Classic. SLU will meet Notre Dame, Purdue and Incarnate Word Feb. 23-25 in Texas.

"We are excited for the 2018 schedule," Hendrickson said. "We have a good mix of home and road contests, as well as our usual midweek matchups against the likes of SEMO, SIUE, Eastern Illinois and Bradley. After hosting Purdue for three games and then traveling to face Iowa as part of the challenging nonconference schedule, we will be well prepared for the start of Atlantic 10 Conference play in late March."
