ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The New Mexico baseball team will stage their home opener on Friday, facing the Niagara Purple Eagles. 


The Lobos are 2-2 with both losses to the defending national champions, Oregon State. 

The Lobos will play 4 games against the Purple Eagles. Their game will begin at 4 p.m., with their weekend games beginning at noon. 

It's an opportunity to watch Jared Mang swing the bat.  

"It means everything if he gets it right in 2017, he was the leader that took us to the championship so him being healthy is important," said Ray Birmingham, Lobos head coach. 

Lobo senior Jared Mang said he's trying to go about his business the right way.

"Make sure I'm playing hard, and go up with energy, helping guys out when they need stuff, and trying to be a good example," Lobo senior Jared Mang said.
