The Manhattan Jaspers will open their 55 game 2016 softball schedule on the weekend of February 19 in Madeira Beach, Florida when they participate in a tournament hosted by Eastern Michigan. Manhattan will then look to open their home schedule with a doubleheader vs. Hartford on March 1. With this being an El Nino winter, the weather may be nice on that date. After playing at Hampton's tournament on the weekend of March 4, the Jaspers head to the west coast for a six game tournament at St. Mary's in Moraga, California beginning March 11. Their final tournament will be at St. John's on the weekend of March 18.
Manhattan will end March with a series of home games vs. Long Island, Sacred Heart and Stony Brook before beginning MAAC play at Siena on April 2. They will close their regular season on May 7 with a conference DH at St. Peter's. The Jaspers will have 11 home dates in 2016.
