When the Southeastern Louisiana baseball team travels to Miami to open the 2011 season at Florida International they will be doing so with the college baseball spotlight shining very bright on them. The Lions opening weekend (Feb 18-20) three game series with FIU is set to air live on ESPNU and ESPN3.
FIU's Garrett Wittels is currently chasing history as he tries to break Robin Ventura's 24 year old record of hitting safely in 58 consecutive games. Wittels currently has a 56 game hitting streak, which is carrying over from the 2010 season. With the hitting streak and two of the nation's top mid-major programs clashing, ESPN will be providing college baseball fans across the country a great opening weekend match up.
