PISCATAWAY, N.J. (September 27, 2013) – The Rutgers softball team begins its fall season this weekend, as it welcomes Caldwell College to the RU Softball Complex for a doubleheader on Saturday, Sept. 28. The doubleheader is set to begin at noon.
The doubleheader marks the first of four scheduled for the Scarlet Knights this fall, as three will take place “On the Banks.”
The Scarlet Knights finished 30-26 last season, reaching the 30-win plateau for the fourth time in the program’s 38-year history and narrowly missing a spot in the BIG EAST Tournament. It was the highest win total recorded in head coach Jay Nelson’s tenure with RU.
The squad returns six positional starters and the corps of its pitching staff as it enters a new year.
