One Week Added to Playing
According to the American Baseball Coaches
Association, the NCAA Division I Board of Directors voted to
maintain 56 games and added a week to the playing schedule.
The week will be added to the beginning of the
season. The 2010 College World Series is scheduled for June
19-30. This is one week later than 2009 due to the calendar
change, not this legislation. The regular season of 14 weeks
will start on Feb. 19. Conference play must end by May 30 and
regionals will start on June 3.
Regular-season practice can start no sooner than
three weeks prior to the start of the season. For 2010, that
date is Friday, Jan. 29.
The uniform start date has been in effect for the
past two seasons.
