Or talk the BSC teams into getting baseball back.

Not gonna happen.................
Including the new members of North Dakota and Southern Utah, the Big Sky has 4 total members that sponsor the sport.
UND would be far better off cutting baseball and diverting the resources elseware......................

I love the sport of baseball. But I'd be interested to see the drag that the sport has on UND's bottom line. It was different in the NCC when 9 of 10 teams were within a few hours drive of Grand Forks so that weather was not nearly as big a factor.
It's kind of like a farmer near Dickinson trying to plant sugar beets just because they do around Fargo...................

"If you go back to when we eliminated baseball we were running a major deficit and there was a million dollar cut on top of that," he said. "The situations that led to that aren't in place today."
Even with that UNI is looking to cut more money from athletics.
UNI had to eliminate baseball because of budget cuts, I wonder how long baseball will last at UND. With the Division I, expenses are increasing dramastically from D2, but Revenue seems to be about the same. I think its only a matter of time before UND finds itself needing to reduce expenses.

The teams will play a Saturday doubleheader at Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo starting at 1 p.m.
Well the team will get 2 more home games this season. Hopefully the weather holds out and a decent crowd shows up to support the team.
