Baseball, West Virginia

Penn State baseball takes the field during a game between Penn State and West Virginia at PNC Park, Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Penn State is headed to the big leagues — for a day at least.

The Nittany Lions will battle in-state rival Pittsburgh May 17 at PNC Park.

The blue and white leads the 135-game series 88-46-1. The Nittany Lions last played the Panthers in 2019, splitting the series with one win each.

This will be the third time the Nittany Lions play in the Pirates’ stadium, meeting West Virginia in 2017 and again in 2019.

Since exclusively playing Big Ten opponents last year, new and some returning players will play one of their first games against an ACC opponent in an MLB stadium.
