Following a successful pro scout day over the weekend, Charlotte baseball turns its attention to the end of the fall team practice period and the Green/White Fall World Series, to take place at the end of the month. The series is scheduled for three games, will begin Thursday, October 24, and continue on Friday and Saturday of that week. Thursday’s game will be at 6 p.m., with a 5 p.m. Friday start and 1 p.m. Saturday finale.
The series could start earlier if bad weather is forecast for the area that weekend. Stay tuned for updates by the start of next week. Seniors will captain the teams, which will be selected by Tuesday the 24th.
Charlotte finished 37-23 last season, tying the school record by winning 29 games at home. The 49ers tied for the Atlantic 10 Conference title, their fifth title in the past seven years. Charlotte returns three offensive starters and 10 pitchers to the 2014 squad, which will return to compete in Conference USA. Charlotte welcomed 14 newcomers to the squad this season.
The 2014 season begins Friday, February 14, when Charlotte hosts Youngstown State and Virginia Tech for a three-team, three-day opening weekend. Each of the teams will play a doubleheader one day, facing each other twice in the weekend. Charlotte will play a 30-game C-USA schedule starting March 7, when the Niners host FIU at Hayes Stadium.
