The West Virginia University baseball team will play an exhibition game against the Arizona Diamondbacks next month.

WVU says the teams will meet at the Diamondbacks' spring training ballpark Feb. 29 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The school says it's believed to be the first time the Mountaineers will play a team from Major League Baseball. Diamondbacks managing general partner Ken Kendrick is a WVU alumnus.

The game will be part of an 11-day, eight game road trip for the Mountaineers. It begins with three games at UNLV from Feb. 26 to 28 and concludes with a four-game series at Hawaii from March 3 to 6.

The Diamondbacks will open Cactus League play on March 1.
