IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa baseball team will hold its annual Black and Gold World Series starting Friday at Banks Field. Game one will be held Friday at 6 p.m., with game two on Saturday at noon. Games three and four will be Wednesday, Oct. 12, and Thursday, Oct. 13, at 3:45 p.m. If necessary, a fifth game will be played Sunday, Oct. 16 at noon.

“We are really excited to see our players compete in a true game situation,” Iowa Head Coach Jack Dahm said. “We’ve had a great fall of practice so far, but you don’t really know how well you are coming along until you see it on the field.”

The Black and Gold World Series is open to the public and admission is free.

Iowa is coming off a 28-29 season that saw the Hawkeyes post a 19-13 record in the Big Ten and advance to the Big Ten Tournament for the first time since 2002.
