NORFOLK, Va. – Florida A&M opens the MEAC Baseball Tournament against Coppin State on Wednesday evening. The Rattlers enter the Tournament as the No. 2 seed out of the Southern Division and are on a five-game winning streak. The Eagles are the No. 3 seed out of the Northern Division.
Since the two MEAC divisions don’t face each other during the regular season, this will be the first meeting between Florida A&M and Coppin State since May 1, 2011.
This will be FAMU’s first appearance in the MEAC Tournament since 2011. The last win for the Rattlers in the MEAC Tournament came in a 12-2 opening round win over UMES in 2009.
