The West Virginia Black Bears are thrilled to announce another season of summer baseball at Monongalia County Ballpark with the release of the 2023 season schedule. The Black Bears’ 2023 season begins on the road on June 1 with a weekend series at Eastwood Field against the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. The Home Opener on Tuesday, June 6, sets the stage for a Championship rematch as last year’s second-place team, the Williamsport Crosscutters, who return to The Mon for the first home series of the season.

“Coming off a championship season, we’re more than excited for a new season of Black Bears baseball,” said General Manger Leighann Sainato. “We have more weekend dates this season, including two series in June, meaning more premium promotions and opportunities to experience the young talent in the league.”

West Virginia’s schedule features seven weekend series and a special Independence Day celebration against the Mahoning Valley Scrappers on Monday, July 3. The Black Bears will travel to the Scrappers for a game on July 4 before the end of the first half of the season. The schedule includes four six-game home stands on July 11-16, July 25-30, August 8-13, and August 22-27.

Game times will be announced as the promotional schedule is finalized. Season tickets are now currently on sale for the 2023 season. For more information on season tickets, please visit the Black Bears Ticketing Page.
