With only eight days remaining until the birth of the 2014 CVCC Baseball Season, the Pirates have battled rain and brutally cold (at least for us southerners) temperatures to prepare for the season opener against Jefferson Davis CC on Friday, January 31st.
The Pirates will take a break from practice and intra-squads this Saturday, January 25th and travel to LaGrange, Georgia to play a 10 inning scrimmage against the Panthers of LaGrange College at 2:00 eastern time.
“I love a pre-season scrimmage the week before the season opener. It allows us to have a real game-like atmosphere, while also allowing our players to exorcise the first game jitters before the actual first game. Additionally, it will help exploit any weaknesses or concerns that need to be addressed before the opener. I know the boys are looking forward to it, as am I and the rest of the coaching staff”, said Coach Thomas.
