A double header with Quinnipiac and Howard is slated for 8 a.m. and 11 a.m on Sunday. Monday, the Cyclones will have another double header with Howard and Coppin State beginning at 9 a.m.

Quinnipiac and Coppin State will play in its first games of the season this weekend. Howard has a 1-3 record. All three teams play in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. 

The games will be held at Nationals Youth Academy, a baseball and softball facility created by the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball.
