Worcester Baseball just released its full 56-game schedule for the 2014 season. The team will play its home opener on Fitton Field on Thursday, June 5. In September, the College of the Holy Cross announced the new partnership with the City, local business owner John W.S. Creedon Jr., and the Futures League, to bring summer baseball back to Fitton Field.

After the soon-to-be-named team begins its inaugural season on the road June 4 in Torrington, Conn., Fitton Field will then play host to four consecutive home games on the opening weekend. The first game will take place Thursday, June 5, against the Pittsfield Suns, then Central Mass rival, Wachusett, visits on Friday, June 6,  followed by a post-game fireworks display, and two-time FCBL Champion, Nashua, comes to town on Saturday, June 7. The opening weekend will be capped off with an afternoon game on Sunday, June 8, against the Seacoast Mavericks from Portsmouth, N.H.

“The schedule couldn’t have come together any better,” said General Manager Dave Peterson. “The league did an exceptional job publishing it so early, and the 4-game opening weekend sets the stage for an exciting summer full of entertainment.”

Of the 28 home games at Fitton Field, 15 of them will take place on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays. Worcester is planning on 7:05 p.m. start times for games Monday through Saturday and 2:05 p.m. start times on Sundays. Other notable home games include a matinee on the 4th of July against Seacoast (time TBD), a Friday, June 13, contest against Torrington when the Massachusetts Democratic Party State Convention is in town, and the regular season finale slated for Wednesday, August 6, against Old Orchard Beach. Worcester looks to host two 11 a.m.  games: Thursday, June 12, against Brockton will be a game for area school students on a “field trip”; and Tuesday, July 15, versus Nashua will be a game for area summer camp kids.

New in 2014, the league has unveiled two divisions for the first time in its history. Worcester will be part of the West Division along with Wachusett, Torrington, and former Can-Am League counterparts Pittsfield and Nashua. The East Division is made up of Brockton, Martha’s Vineyard, North Shore, Seacoast, and Old Orchard Beach.

The 2014 FCBL playoffs will feature six teams in a three round format during the week of August 10. The winner of each division will have a bye in round one, while the next four teams with the best overall records will play one-game play-in contests. Both the semi-final round and FCBL Championship will be 3-game series.

The team is also preparing to announce its name and logo on December 3.
