    CHICAGO - The UIC baseball team is in Niles, Ohio this weekend for a three-game set against the Youngstown State Penguins, but just because the team is out of town doesn’t mean you can’t catch all the action.

    The Flames (6-14, 2-1 Horizon League) and Penguins (10-11, 2-1 Horizon League) will also play a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at 10:00 a.m. CT.
