Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) --The UND baseball team gets it's season underway tomorrow at the Metrodome against Mount Mary out of South Dakota.

Head Coach Jeff Dodson returns his top 8 hitters from a year ago, and UND was picked to finish 6th out of 8 teams in the Great West preseason poll.

Dodson says playing at the dome is too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Dodson says, "We wanted to try and play this year at the metrodome to get our kids in front of their families, to keep them in class, and eliminate some of those long bus rides. We'll see how it works. Our kids are really excited about it. I know our parents, friends and family, and a lot of our alumni are very excited to see us play closer to home this early in the year and we're really looking forward to it."
