Bucs to host Longwood Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Thomas Stadium
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 13, 2014) – The ETSU baseball team will have to wait one more day to open the 2014 season.
Due to the snowstorm that hit the Tri-Cities region on Wednesday, the Bucs were forced to make schedule changes to their weekend series with Longwood. ETSU will now play the Lancers Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Thomas Stadium. First pitch for each game is set for 1:05 p.m.
Originally, the series was set to be played Friday at 3:05 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 1:05 p.m.
The Valentine’s Day promotion that was scheduled for Friday will also be moved to Saturday. Fans are encouraged to Tweet why they “Love” ETSU baseball to either @ETSUAthletics or @ETSU_Baseball using the hashtag (#BuckyLove). For those who don’t have Twitter, ETSU marketing staff will have paper hearts for fans to fill out saying why they "Love" ETSU baseball at the game on Saturday.
The prizes include: a one-night stay at The Carnegie Hotel, lunch for two at Wellington’s, and a one-hour massage at Austin Springs Spa. The winners will be determined by those who come up with the most creative reasons why they love ETSU baseball and will be announced at the game on Saturday.
To purchase season tickets, call the ETSU ticket office at (423) 439-3878 or visit ETSUBucs.com/tickets.
