The number four seeded, Faulkner Eagles Baseball team arrived in the L-C Valley Tuesday night and jumped over to Church Field on Wednesday for a little practice. The defending NAIA World Series champions hail from Montgomery, Alabama and beat the hometown LCSC Warriors 11-4 to claim their first baseball championship in school history. Pitcher and coach are not only confident coming into the series, but grateful to be here as well.
"More or less, we've got a lot of guys who have been here before and know how it feels," said Faulkner Pitcher, Jeremy Holcombe. "And we've got a lot of guys who have transferred in and they've been in a lot of playoff situations so that really helps us coming in this year."
"It's just a great blessing, and we just wanna make the right showing, do it the right way, respect the game, and we're just real excited to be out here," said Faulkner Head Coach, Patrick McCarthy.
The Eagles will begin their series quest for a second championship when they take the field against Georgetown this Friday at noon.
