Fans hungry for an early taste of Winthrop baseball can check out three free intrasquad games beginning today at The Winthrop Ballpark.
The Eagles play Games 1-3 of their annual Banana Split series beginning today, with Games 4-6 set for next weekend. Today's game is set for 3:45 p.m. (seven innings), with a nine-inning tilt set for 2:15 p.m. Saturday and another seven-inning game at 2:45 p.m. Sunday.
Fans are advised to check winthropeagles.com in the case of inclement weather for news of postponements or re-scheduled times.
The premise is simple. The Eagles held their player draft this week and chose two rosters. After the series is completed, the losing team buys the winning team a round of banana splits at a team banquet just before final exams.
