Pirates playing like champs
Saturday, April 20, 2019
This past weekend my wife and I headed to Westwood to watch the UCLA Bruins host our Pirates in a three-game baseball series. What we witnessed was collegiate baseball played at the highest level!
From the slick fielding to the great at-bats to the phenomenal pitching, the games had the feel of a Super Regional. One of the Bruin coaches summed it up this way: “It was like a championship fight, punch and counter punch ... they just keep coming at you!”
Based on what I saw that weekend, I suggest that Pirate fans keep their calendar open for the month of June as I look for our Pirates to go deep into the post season with the distinct possibility of being the last team standing!
