ECU Club Baseball headed to first ever World Series

East Carolina University’s Club Baseball team is preparing for its first ever appearance in the National Club Baseball Association World Series.  The ECU Club Baseball team advanced by claiming the Mid-Atlantic Regional title with an 11-1 victory over the University of Maryland club baseball team on May 17.

“We’re going,” ECU club baseball head coach Joe Caracci said to his team after the win.  “Our goal has always been to be able to have the opportunity to compete for a national championship and now we have that chance.”

The National Club Baseball Association World Series (NCBA) will be played May 27 to June 2 in Columbus, Ga.  ECU will battle UC-Santa Barbara, Massachusetts, Texas Tech, Iowa, Western Washington and Michigan for the World Series title.

“The road has been tough and a lot of hard work and dedication has gone into the program in the last five years in order to finally realize this goal,” said Caracci.

The Pirates went 3-0 in the regional with two wins over Maryland and one against James Madison.   ECU was led by the stellar pitching of Daniel Martin, Joe O’Malley and John McFarling.   Martin, a 2010 All-American, was named the Mid-Atlantic Regional MVP after throwing a complete game in a 2-1 win over the JMU Dukes.

Offensively, Brian Burgess led the way for the Pirates.  Burgess, who led the nation in home runs, added one more in the tourney to go along with a triple, double, three RBI and three runs scored.

The Pirates improved their overall record to 25-7 and jumped ten spots to 3rd in the latest national rankings heading into the World Series.

“All we can think about right now is getting down there (Columbus) and showing the country what we are all about,” said Caracci.

ECU is seeded fourth in the World Series and will face fifth seeded Florida State in the tourney opener on Saturday, May 28 at 3 p.m.

    loce աhat youve ggot to say. But mаybe you could ɑ little mߋre in the way of ϲontent so
    people ϲould connect ѡith iit Ƅetter. Youve ցot an awful lot of text fοr

    filled animals, you wiull get hours of enjoyment watching them

    There are plenty of different games that can be effective when used by the right intructor
    for the correct group of students, ” Husøy explained. Once i
    look for games to put in the classroom, I usee the same technique as any additional media.
    They may be destroying the common values and lexickn that willl allow uss to communicate
    with each other and hold all of us together like a society.

    Nearly all gmes uszing a sexual theme feature a man character and lots of naked women.
    A nnew number of games come up regularly and thus yoou do not obtain bored playing the same games again annd
    again, they get a brand new variety of online game every time each

    When I search for games to put inn thhe clwss room, I use the same approach
    as any other press. They are eliminating the common ideals and lexicon thatt allow us in order to communicate with each other and hold us with each other as a
    society. The majority of games with a sex theme feature a male character and lots of naked women.
    The partgicular legacy still left byy Russia’s first winter
    Games is one of glistening purpose-built arenas with little if any
    post-Games use, a massive change of infrastructure at the Black sea holiday resort and a report price tag that triggered adjustments for
    long term Olympics.
    By blaming the particular European turmoil on wages and the price
    oof labor lus ignoring thee particular role associated with credit flows within the monetary union, economists are allowing Big Banking institutions
    off the catch, absolving them from anyy responsibility, leave alone
    fault – plus unjustifiably so.

    One, it’ll allow you to see immediately below your base, so
    that you can scout the area for creepers or other mobs before
    you leave the safety of your flying home. The idea here is to pour lava into forms
    like you would concrete, then use water to cool it into obsidian on the spot.

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like

  10. You’ll for certain do not have something to lose with
    Adiphene, thus for those that actually need to slim while not losing their time and power, then Adiphene is that
    the product for you. Perhaps the main reason behind this though is that you
    have developed a dependence on food. The science behind Adiphene consists of 12 of probably the most power fat
    preventing ingredients known.

  14. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    thing like this before. So nice to discover another

    someone with a little originality!
