DeLAND—With fall practice rapidly coming to a close Stetson’s baseball team begins play in its annual Hatter Series, 3 p.m., Wednesday at Melching Field.

This year’s series is a best-of-five event between the Hatternuts and the Dunn Deals. All games are seven innings. A full schedule can be found below.

“These are two pretty evenly matched teams,” said head coach Pete Dunn. “This is a great time of year for the coaching staff because we just sit back and watch and make notes and critique each team after every game. This series is the most competition you’ll ever get out of an intra-squad scrimmage.”

Seniors Robert Bruce and Kurt Schluter are coaches for the Hatternauts, while fellow seniors Austin Perez and Kyle Zech are the skippers for the Dunn Deals. Teams were drafted on Tuesday morning. Complete team rosters are listed below.

Games are free and open to the public. The series schedule with times is listed below.
