Welcoming Wright State for Opening Day

Vanderbilt to host Wright State on Opening Weekend

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The opening weekend of Vanderbilt’s 2021 baseball schedule is set as the Commodores will host Wright State from Feb. 19-21.

The Commodores will open the season at home for just the second time in the past five seasons and the first time since 2018.

Wright State posted a 6-9 record in the shortened 2020 season. The Raiders have been to three of the past five NCAA Tournaments, including winning a Horizon League title in 2018.

Vanderbilt opens Southeastern Conference play at home for the first time when the team takes on South Carolina (March 19-21). The Commodores will also host league foes Georgia (April 9-11), Mississippi State (April 23-25), Alabama (May 7-9) and Kentucky (May 20-22).

The Commodores’ SEC road slate includes trips to Missouri (March 26-28), LSU (April 2-4), Tennessee (April 16-18), Florida (April 30-May 2) and Ole Miss (May 14-16).

Vanderbilt will release the rest of its nonconference schedule at a later date.

The Commodores have been ranked in the top 10 in three preseason polls. Most recently, Vanderbilt was tabbed fourth in D1Baseball’s Preseason Top 25, while being ranked second and sixth by Collegiate Baseball and Perfect Game, respectively.
