The East Carolina baseball team completed its first practice of the season at Clark-LeClair Stadium on Friday while basking in weather befitting April or May, and the Pirates themselves looked to be in mid-season form as well.

The near 70-degree weather probably won’t last until ECU opens the season Feb. 17 against Milwaukee, but head coach Billy Godwin is hopeful his team’s promising form will.


“I was really pleased and I thought it was a solid day,” Godwin said following the team’s first full-scale practice of the 2012 season. “We rolled right into a scrimmage day one, and it was clean. We made probably one error and we played about seven innings.”
