Column: Managing pitching will be key for softball and baseball in 2021

The San Diego State baseball and softball teams take the field this week to open their 2021 seasons.

Both teams begin by taking on cross-town rival University of San Diego.

Softball heads south on Interstate 8 on Wednesday, while the baseball team takes on the Toreros over the weekend at Tony Gwynn Stadium for two and plays Sunday at Cunningham Stadium.

One thing that is different for both squads in 2021 is scheduling.

Every Mountain West Conference series contains a doubleheader and some non-conference series also implemented doubleheaders to limit travel and COVID-19 exposure. It will be a two-day series with the doubleheader coming on the first day of the series.
