Baseball team changes dates for Hokie Fall World Series
Games scheduled for Oct. 18, 20 and 21

BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Virginia Tech baseball team will conclude its fall practice schedule early next week by holding the annual Hokie Fall World Series, a three-game, intrasquad affair that will take place at English Field.

The two teams will face off on Oct. 18, 20 and 21, with each game beginning at 5:30 p.m. The games were originally scheduled for Oct. 15, 17 and 18, but the looming weather forecast prompted the change.

The series is not a best-of-three event – all three games will be played. Should one team win the first two contests, the 0-2 team can still claim the series if it outscores the 2-0 team in game three by more than the combined deficit that it lost by in the first two games.

Fans are welcome to come check out any of the three games, and admission is free.

The rosters are as follows:

Team 1

4 Mike Kaminski

5 Michael Seaborn

7 Buddy Sosnoskie
