The Huskies will open their season this coming weekend in Texas, with three big games at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros. They will start their season as the No. 4 ranked team in the region.

SCSU has two preseason All-Region Players in pitcher Dom Austing and Outfielder Mitch Malek. The Huskies finished the 2018 season with a 30-17 overall record and were 21-8 in the NSIC. The preseason regional rankings have only Augustana, Southern Arkansas and Central Missouri ahead of the Huskies.

The Huskies will have nearly their entire pitching staff back from the 2018 season, including two-time All American Sheldon Miks in the rotation.
