Saint Vincent to play doubleheader at Pirates’ spring training site

Pitchers and catchers will report — along with the rest of the Saint Vincent baseball team.

Saint Vincent will head south next month to open the season, but with a bonus.

The Bearcats will play a doubleheader at LECOM Park in Bradenton, Fla., the spring training home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

SVC will face Hilbert for a doubleheader March 4 as part of the Russ Matt Tournament in Winter Haven. Game 1 starts at 10 a.m.

The Bearcats are scheduled to play seven games in Florida before heading to Newport News, Va., for the three-game Builder Invitational on March 16.

“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to play at a ballpark with such a long, rich history,” Saint Vincent baseball coach Mick Janosko said. “The fact that it’s the Pirates’ spring training home makes it even better.

“This should be an experience that our players will never forget. We are very grateful to the Pirates for this opportunity.”

SVC played a team of Pirates prospects in 2006 when it visited Pirate City.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
