The good students at WPTS, Pitt's radio station, sent over some broadcast information for baseball games this season. No, I don' t talk a lot of baseball here, even though it's arguably my favorite sport. But with the new facilities, I've committed myself to trying to get a game this season.
Plus, the team is actually off to a good start again this year, beating a pair of Big Ten teams in the recent Big East / Big Ten Invitational. The program has been considerably better and they were a bubble tournament team for much of last season.
The next broadcast is scheduled for this Sunday...and it's a good thing, because I don't know how many people will be headed to the stadium to freeze. I've got to admit, I've always found college baseball to be a bit odd. How can you possibly play games in February in cold-weather cities, anyway?
