The Duel at the Diamond is the name given to the college baseball series between the Virginia Cavaliers baseball team and the VCU Rams baseball team, two NCAA Division I teams that play in Central Virginia.

History[edit]

The two programs first met during the 1979 NCAA Division I baseball season, where Virginia defeated VCU by a score of 17-4.[1]

Starting in the mid-2010s, the games held at VCU were known as the "Duel at the Diamond".[2][3][4]

In 2019, the 67th meeting between the two programs will attempt to break an in-state college baseball attendance record.[5] The game will be held on April 30, 2019.
