FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Mountaineer Baseball and Softball Home Openers Set for this Weekend
MANSFIELD – After late season winter weather caused havoc on the PSAC baseball and softball schedules, the Mountaineer teams will play their home openers this weekend.
The baseball team suffered worse than the softball team having three contests postponed or cancelled in the last two weeks but remained optimistic after sweeping Lock Haven on the road this past Tuesday.
The baseball team, now with a 6-8 overall record, will open the PSAC East schedule on Friday at Shaute Field against West Chester. The doubleheader is set to begin at 1:00 pm.
Bob Michaels of WELM will be on hand again this season to carry the Mountaineer games on the air and on the internet. The games can be heard on WELM 1410AM or online at www.1410welm.com. Pre-game broadcast will begin at 12:45.
The softball team was able to play their games as they traveled to South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia.
The Mountaineers, off to a 3-12 start, will host Millersville on Saturday as they open the PSAC East season. The doubleheader is scheduled to start at 1:00 pm at Lutes Field.
