Play ball! – More than 100 Seahawk baseball fans, made up of alumni and friends, gathered on the left field deck at Brooks Field to cheer on our UNCW baseball team as they took on the East Carolina Pirates. As the event got started, guests were greeted by Coach Mark Scalf who mingled his way through the crowd and gave everyone some inside tips on the UNCW team. Seahawk alumni enjoyed hot dogs (a ballpark favorite) and extras, generously donated by Parchies. The UNCW Alumni Association ordered the beautiful weather that kept smiles on everyone’s faces and everyone had a great time! Check out the photos!
