FRESNO, Calif. --- The Fresno State baseball team will be back at Beiden Field for the next six games, which starts Wednesday night at 6:35 p.m. PT when the Bulldogs host CSU Bakersfield.

This will be the first of three consecutive weeks that Fresno State (8-23) and Bakersfield (24-13) are going to play a weekday game. Fresno State travels to Bakersfield next Tuesday with CSUB returning to Fresno on April 30 at 6:35 p.m.

After hosting CSUB, the Bulldogs will play the Air Force Falcons in a rare five-game weekend series at Beiden due to two postponed games between the schools earlier this season when Fresno State visited Colorado Springs.

The FS-AFA series will be played as doubleheaders on Friday (Game 1 - 3:05 p.m. PT) and Saturday (Game 1 - 2:05 p.m. PT), and the series finale on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. PT. The second game of the doubleheaders on Friday and Saturday will begin approximately 45-55 minutes following the conclusion of the first game of the day. In the early games on Friday and Saturday, AFA will be the designated home team and the regulation length will be listed as seven innings.

For all five games between the Bulldogs and Falcons, members of the United States military will receive free admission.

The games will also be part of the campus' Vintage Days celebration that annually brings over 50,000 people to campus for a weekend of fun for the entire family. For more information on Fresno State's Vintage Days, please visit www.fresnostate.edu/vintagedays.
