The Horizon League Baseball Tournament gets underway this week in Chicago and the Wright State Raiders are the No. 2 seed heading into action at Les Miller Field. While Dayton is typically known for its great college basketball, this week it will be a college baseball town with both the Raiders and Dayton Flyers holding the No. 2 seed in their respective conference tournaments.

The successful season landed them the No. 2 seed, with Valparaiso holding the top spot. The Raiders will have a first-round bye on Wednesday, awaiting the winner of Milwaukee and Youngstown State.
