UNCW to host Czech national baseball team

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNCW will play host to the Czech Republic national team in an exhibition baseball game Tuesday at Brooks Field.

First pitch is slated for 6 p.m. Admission to the game is free.

The Seahawks played the Czech national team in 2013 and 2015, winning both games.

UCNW head coach Mark Scalf's team is coming off its third straight appearance in the CAA championship game, but did see the departure of seven starters, including conference Player of the Year Casey Golden.

This fall, the Seahawks have 17 newcomers.

Alex Royalty, the reigning CAA Pitcher of the Year in 2017, will make the start Tuesday. At least nine different Seahawks are expected to pitch in the game.
