North Carolina Tar Heels Baseball TicketsBaseball was launched on the campus at Chapel Hill all the way back in 1867 when a team from UNC soundly defeated an All-Star team from Raleigh, N.C., by a score of 34-17. However, that was the only season the school would field a baseball team until 1891 when the program was reborn. Initially a member of the Southern Conference in the early 1900s, the Tar Heels would win six conference titles under head coach, Bunn Hearn. Current head coach Mike Fox took over in 1999 and in his first season posted a record of 41-18. He took the program to the post season for the fifth time in the 1990s. The 2000s got off to just as impressive of a start when the 2000 season saw the Tar Heels reel off a school record 21-game winning streak. Today's Tar Heels are still one of the premier programs in college baseball. Grab your North Carolina Tar Heels baseball tickets today at the world's largest online ticket marketplace, StubHub.
