CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Advance ticket sales for the Virginia-Florida State baseball series this weekend are strong as fewer than 700 tickets remain for the games on Saturday (April 20) and Sunday (April 21). Fewer than 1,200 tickets remain for the series opener Friday (April 19).
Virginia and Florida State are scheduled to play at 6 p.m. Friday, 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
The Cavaliers are currently ranked No. 7 nationally with a 31-6 record, while the Seminoles are ranked No. 5 with a 30-6 mark. Both teams are 13-5 in the ACC.
The series is the first between two top-10 teams at Davenport Field since then-No. 4 FSU and then-No. 5 UVa met on March 18-20, 2011.
"Our fans have played a major role in our success at Davenport Field in recent years," head coach Brian O'Connorsaid. "Florida State has a great club. This is the weekend we need to fill our stadium for all three games and really create a great home-field advantage at Davenport."

Admissions are being held for students similar to what is done for football, men's basketball and men's lacrosse games.
