The Can-Am College Baseball League inaugural season opens today, with an interesting set of match-ups across the 26-team league.
The action starts early with Everglades University Swampmen hosting the Utah State University Preachers, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at 1:05 pm. The EVU Swampmen are expected to be one of the stronger teams, and made the Top 5 Rankings. Top pitching prospect Duane Carrere will likely get the start for EVU, while USU’s Branden Cassidy will start for the visitors. Both starters feature in the Top 5 Pitching prospects for the college league.
