GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida baseball’s schedule for the 2023 season is officially set, as announced by Head Coach Kevin O’Sullivan in accordance with the Southeastern Conference on Wednesday afternoon. The Gators’ 109th season of competition on the diamond opens in the form of a three-game home series against Charleston Southern spanning from Friday, Feb. 17 to Sunday, Feb. 19.
In total, Florida’s 2023 slate is composed of 55 games and 36 home contests at the state-of-the-art Condron Family Ballpark – Ballpark Digest‘s 2021 College Ballpark of the Year. Most notably, 20 of the Gators’ first 22 games take place at home.
The 2023 schedule features 24 games against 10 different 2022 NCAA Tournament teams. Four of those teams advanced to NCAA Super Regionals while three reached the College World Series.
