There was plenty of optimism heading into a new season of Maverick baseball, and the team certainly did not disappoint, posting a stellar start. But four weeks into play, the season was called thanks to COVID-19.
Though the season ended abruptly, it wasn’t without some memorable and even monumental moments. The Mavericks finished with a 12-4 record through 16 games—the team’s best start since 2001.

- The team ERA of 2.42 was among the best in the nation.

- Wyatt Divis was one of the top relievers in the nation, with a 0.00 ERA in 16 innings pitched. The team finished with the 20th hardest strength of schedule. The Mavericks played a ranked team on every Tuesday of the season (DBU—twice, TCU, Oklahoma).
