Baseball Starts Practice in Preparation for Season Opener

CONWAY, S.C. – The Coastal Carolina University baseball team started its team practice today (Feb. 1) in preparation for the 2009 season opener Feb. 20 against Southern Illinois as part of the Caravelle Resort Tournament. This is the second straight year that the NCAA has had a starting date for both practice and competition.   The Chanticleers participated in a team photo and interviews with local newspapers and television before starting the practice. The Chants had an intersquad scrimmage as well in their first practice.   The Chanticleers return six starters and nine pitchers from last year’s 50-14 team that advanced to the Super Regionals for the first time in school history.
