Many stars for the team – Isaac Ayon, Jacob Walash, and RJ Gordon to name a few – have returned in hopes of improving their championship run in 2024.
Last year, after stunning #4 Stanford in the Pac-12 Tournament and eliminating #3 Vanderbilt in the Nashville Regional, Oregon sadly went 0-3 against Oral Roberts and didn’t move on to the College World Series.
Looking ahead to February, when the Ducks will start their season, fans can be optimistic that it will be another fun year of baseball in Eugene.
To kick off the year, Oregon will travel to Arlington, Texas to play in the Shriners Children’s Showdown. The team is scheduled to face Big 12 opponents Oklahoma, Baylor, and Texas Tech.
Before seeing a Pac-12 opponent in 2024, the Ducks will play non-conference opponents in the Lafayette Leopards, the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos, and the Grand Canyon University Antelopes.
The team will then travel to Phoenix for their first conference series against the Arizona State Sun Devils. This will be followed by another non-conference game against the University of Portland.
Pac-12 play will continue for the Ducks as they host Cal and Arizona for back-to-back series. Seattle University will then make the four-hour drive to Eugene.
On April 2, Oregon will head up the road to play Portland for the second time in the season.
Series against the LA programs, UCLA and then USC, will sandwich a quick trip home to play a series against the Sacramento State Hornets.
Oregon will only have two more non-conference opponents when the team faces Gonzaga at home on April 16 and on the Road at San Francisco University later that month.
Stanford will look for revenge against the Ducks in a home series on April 19-21. Oregon will face its in-state rival, Oregon State, April 26-30.
The Ducks will then play host to the Utah Utes for a 3-game series before rounding out their season with the Washington teams. First, Oregon will fly up to Seattle to visit the Huskies’ stomping grounds before heading home to play against the Washington State Cougars.
The Pac-12 Tournament will be in Scottsdale, AZ from May 21 through May 25.
Perfect Game has three Pac-12 teams in the top 25 with Oregon State at #9, Stanford at #12, and UCLA at #18 – the Ducks do not appear in PG’s preseason rankings.
