Admission is free to the general public.
This weekend signals the start of conference for all teams around the Mid-American Conference. The Golden Flashes were a College World Series participant in 2012, becoming the first team from the MAC to advance to Omaha since Eastern Michigan in 1976.

- Saturday, March 23: 6 p.m. (or 45 minutes after the conclusion of UIC games)
