JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2008) - The ETSU baseball team is set for its 10th annual Blue/Gold World Series. First pitch of the best-of-seven series is slated for Wednesday at 3:45 p.m. at Cardinal Park.

 

"We have had a very productive fall season thus far," said head coach Tony Skole. "Our staff and players are really excited about these last two weeks and the beginning of our ‘Jingle Bell 5K' World Series getting underway. It should be fun, exciting and very competitive."  

 

Last year, the Gold squad came back to defeat the Blue squad after dropping the first game in the three-game series.
