World Series Announcement
As our fall practices come to an end, the competition among each other is starting to become greater. We have been split up between two teams, Black and Gold to compete in an intra-squad world series. We are calling it the Southern Miss Baseball Breast Cancer Awareness World Series and donations are being given to the Pink Ribbon Fund (here is there website, you should check it out - PinkRibbonFund.org).
The two teams will going head-to-head for a best-of-5-game series. The winner gets a nice, juicy steak and the loser gets a hot dog with no condiments allowed.
The first game was Tuesday and the Gold team went home with the victory. Intensity was high amongst both teams, but a couple of errors led to two big innings for the Gold squad giving them the edge in the contest.
My team, the Black squad, looks to get even tonight with Andrew Pierce toeing the rubber. We are very confident that the Gold squad will be limited to zero runs during his time on the mound and we hope to get ahead early against their pitcher, Jake Drehoff. We feel like if we put pressure on them early, we can come away with a win and get the series tied 1-1.
We would love for all of Golden Eagle Nation to come out to the game tonight at 6 p.m. to watch us battle it out for not only a juicy steak, but for bragging rights amongst each other.
Admission is free, but don't forget, we are taking donations for the Pink Ribbon Fund in which all proceeds will go towards those who have been affected by breast cancer.
Come on out to the Pete and wear your Black to cheer my team on!
One Team. One Mission. Omaha.
