Pride To Play Home Games At Winthrop Ballpark

May 7, 2015

  The Piedmont Pride summer baseball
team will play all home games at The Winthrop Ballpark. The Pride plays in the
Southern Collegiate Baseball League, and is sponsored by the Piedmont
Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The Pride players will play 40 games during
the summer, but will also do ministry work in York County. The players will
have the opportunity to go on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic after
the season.


Pride head coach Joe Hudak, who was
the Winthrop Head Coach for 19 years, is excited to return to the friendly
confines on the Winthrop campus. “It’s going to be fun to be on the field and
in the dugouts again, kind of like going home”, remarked the former Eagle
skipper. “We are very grateful to Coach Riginos and AD Hickman for working with
us to allow to play at the Ballpark”. The Winthrop Ballpark was built in two
phases. Phase one, consisting of the stadium seating, press box, and lights,
was built in 2001. The second phase, featuring coaches offices, covered
seating, locker room, player lounge, equipment room, training room, weight
room, and indoor batting cages was constructed in the fall of 2007. The stadium
holds approximately 1800 spectators.


Current Winthrop Head Coach Tom
Riginos is also excited about the Pride playing at his place. “We are very
excited to have the Piedmont Pride of the SCBL playing at our field this
summer”, says Riginos. “I think what Coach Hudak is doing with the Pride is
outstanding. I believe this will be good for the players of the Pride, good for
the SCBL, good for Winthrop, and good for the baseball community of Rock Hill”.


The Pride plays its first home game
on Wednesday, June 3 at 7:00. The entire home schedule can be found above under
the schedule button. Information about directions and admission can be found
under the tickets/stadium button on the website.
