Purdue Baseball has officially released its 2021 season schedule Wednesday afternoon.

Purdue will play a 44-game Big Ten only schedule starting on March 5, according to a Purdue Athletics press release. The team will not play in a post-season tournament.

The season will feature 16 home games, 16 away games, and 12 neutral-site games played in several stadiums across the country.

The neutral sites will include two minor league baseball stadiums in Texas and South Carolina: Dell Diamond Stadium in Round Rock, home of the Round Rock Express, the Houston Astros Triple-A affiliate and Fluor Stadium, located in Greenville, South Carolina, is home to the Greenville Drive, the High-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

It will be the first time Purdue has played in a minor league stadium since 2018, when the Boilers went 6-1 in Nelson Wolff Stadium in San Antonio.

The Boilers will begin their season on the road in Dell Diamond Stadium against the Nebraska Cornhuskers from March 5-7.

Purdue will play its rivalry series against the Indiana Hoosiers from Mar. 19-21, with the three game series taking place in Bloomington, Indiana. The series between the two schools is currently tied at 34 games a piece, with their most recent matchup ending in a 17-2 Hoosier victory in seven innings.

While the official policy is still pending, Purdue baseball is expected to limit the attendance of family members of players and coaches.
