TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The wait is finally over! The much anticipated 2010 Florida State Baseball season gets underway this Friday, February 19 at 4:00 p.m. as the Seminoles welcome Georgia State to town for a three-game weekend series on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium.

This marks the second time these two schools will meet on opening weekend with the first coming in 1982 as the `Noles swept the three-game series outscoring the Panthers 57-12. FSU owns a record of 25-2 all-time against Georgia State and enters this weekend’s series winners of 11 straight against GSU. It has been 17 years since these two schools last met with FSU winning the last meeting 12-4 in Tallahassee back on May 22, 1993.

The Seminoles have scored double-digit runs in 19 of the 27 previous meetings against the Panthers including a current streak of five in a row. In comparison, FSU is averaging 15.4 runs per game, while Georgia State has averaged 4.4 runs per game in the series. In games played in Tallahassee, the Garnet and Gold has outscored GSU 279-54.

Sophomore All-American Sean Gilmartin gets the nod as the opening day starter for the Seminoles as he will toe the rubber against Panther junior college transfer David Buchanan. Buchanan was drafted in the 6th round of the 2009 MLB Draft by the N.Y. Mets.

Georgia State is coming off a banner season in 2009 as the Panthers won a school-record 39 games en route to its first Colonial Athletic Association Conference Championship and an appearance in the NCAA Regionals. GSU was picked to finish third in the CAA in 2010 behind James Madison and UNC Wilmington.
