RICHMOND, Va. – While the Major League Baseball regular season is coming to a close, the VCU Baseball season is just getting started.

Head Coach Shawn Stiffler and the Rams will open up fall practice next Wednesday, September 25 at The Diamond.

"Our guys have been working really hard in individual workouts and the weight room so we're all excited to get back on the field and compete," Stiffler said. "It's the first time we're able to  come together as a complete team. Not only are do we want to get some situational work in, but it's a crucial time for us to improve as a group. We're eager to get started."

Intersquad scrimmages will be held throughout the fall and are open to the public. Games will be held every Monday (3 p.m.), Wednesday (6:30 p.m.) and Saturdays (11 a.m.).
