Three days after hearing their sport was being eliminated in July due to budget issues, members of the Temple University baseball program voted unanimously on Monday to go forward and play the 2014 season as scheduled.

The vote came as concerns surfaced about several players possibly transferring, leaving the Owls with too small of a roster to compete.  

"We're all in," senior pitcher Matt Hockenberry told the Philadelphia Daily News. "We're all pretty pumped. It's phenomenal. Let's just say there's a fire that's been started, and it's not going to die any time soon."

The Owls open the 2014 campaign on February 14 in Raleigh against North Carolina A&T.
