What Teams Are Playing In 2024 Snowbird Baseball?

Division I

  • Florida Gulf Coast
  • Illinois State
  • Indiana State
  • Marshall
  • Michigan State
  • St. Louis
  • Maine
  • Pitt
  • St. Thomas

The NCAA Division I portion of 2024 Snowbird Baseball welcomes nine teams to the Sunshine State for games played Feb. 16-25. 

The field includes squads coming off conference championships and appearances in the 2023 NCAA Tournament, as well as some potential breakout programs aiming for a strong start to 2024. 

Illinois State

The Redbirds finished 20-30 a season ago. They'll look to start 2024 building off the positive momentum of a two-game winning streak to send them out of 2023.  

Indiana State

Reigning Missouri Valley Conference champion Indiana State opened an outstanding 2023 with wins over Quinnipiac and FGCU in 2023 Snowbird Baseball. 

The Sycamores return from their NCAA Tournament run featuring an All-American on the pitching staff and plenty of talent in the field. They're now in pursuit of another quality performance at Snowbird Baseball, before gearing up for the MVC. 


Maine reached its first NCAA Tournament since 2011 last year after winning the America East automatic bid. 

The Black Bears figure to be the class of their league again in 2024. 


The Thundering Herd turn the page from a trying 2023, which concluded with a lengthy skid to close out their first Sun Belt Conference season. 

Michigan State 

Michigan State will look to challenge for the Big Ten Conference championship this year after the Spartans went 33-22 in 2023. 

MSU returns Jack Frank as one of its cornerstones. He hit seven home runs and stole 19 bases for the Spartans a season ago. 


Pitt returns for more Snowbird Baseball action after attending the 2023 event. 

Among the familiar faces back is outfielder C.J. Funk, who belted a team-high 13 home runs and slugged .549 for the Panthers.  

St. Louis 

An Atlantic 10 championship narrowly evaded Saint Louis last season, as the Billikens took eventual winner and NCAA Tournament participant George Mason to the brink of the league tournament. 

The Billikens begin their pursuit of a postseason berth this year at Snowbird Baseball. 

St. Thomas

A newcomer to Division I baseball, St. Thomas endured plenty of growing pains in 2023. 

The Tommies finished 10-34, but six of those wins came in Summit League play. 

They aim to make some noise in the Summit this year, beginning the building process with their visit to Snowbird Baseball.  

Florida Gulf Coast

A strong 42-18 mark in 2023 ended bitterly for FGCU, which lost the ASUN Championship and NCAA Tournament bid to Lipscomb. 

The Eagles reload for 2024, bringing back a roster primed for a run at the postseason. They are the only Florida team on the Division I side of Snowbird Baseball, and they only play one game, against Indiana State.

  • Baldwin Wallace 
  • Bluffton 
  • Denison

Players To Watch

Jeremiah Jackson, INF, Maine

A third-team All-American, America East Player of the Year and the NCBWA District 1 Player of the Year, Jenkins filled his trophy case in 2023. 

His individual success also helped propel the Black Bears to the NCAA Tournament. 

Jenkins returns as the cornerstone for Maine in 2024, looking to build off a 2023 in which he hit .365 with 21 home runs and 76 RBIs. His .756 slugging percentage ranked No. 16 among all Division I players last year. 

Jared Spencer, LHP, Indiana State

A preseason All-American for 2024, Spencer returns from a season in which he struck out 51 batters in 37 1/3 innings pitched and had a 3.86 ERA.
