PCC Baseball to Face Czech Republic Squad
By Andrew Edmondson
PCC Media Relations Intern
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will go head-to-head with the Czech Republic's best baseball players this week in an exhibition game at Minges-Overton Baseball Park.
The game will take place Oct. 11 with the first pitch scheduled for 11 a.m.
PCC Baseball Coach Tommy Eason says the Czechs will certainly be a tough opponent for the Bulldogs. "Taking on the Czech Republic team will be a great opportunity to play good competition and see how we stack-up against a team that has potential MLB draft picks on the roster," he said.
