Lexington, Ky. – The Kentucky baseball team has announced its schedule for the 2004 spring season. The Wildcats, under the direction of first-year head coach John Cohen, are set to open their season on Feb. 13, with a trip to Rock Hill, S.C., for a weekend tournament at Winthrop. UK takes on Kent State in its opener, followed by a Feb. 14 matchup with Winthrop and a Feb. 15 contest against Maryland.

Kentucky will host 32 of its 56 regular-season games, beginning with a Feb. 20-22 series against Eastern Michigan. The Wildcats will later welcome two teams from the 2003 College World Series to Cliff Hagan Stadium with home series against Southeastern Conference opponents South Carolina and LSU. In addition, the Cats will host their own Invitational Tournament with Youngstown State, Michigan and Dayton coming to Lexington March 12-14.

“This schedule is a very challenging one,” Cohen said. “We play the majority of our early games on the road and we compete in what I think is the best conference in the country, so this schedule will certainly provide a major test for us.”

Other SEC home series will be with Florida, where Cohen served as an assistant for the past three seasons, Mississippi State, where Cohen played in the early 90’s, and Alabama. Kentucky will travel to Auburn, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia and Vanderbilt inside the conference.
