Coming off a tough road series vs the Motlow State Community College Bucks, The Volunteer State Community College Pioneers (24-16) (8-14) will look to bounce back when they host the Chattanooga State Community College Tigers (24-19) (10-11) in their final home series of the season. Weather forecasts have forced Vol State to push back the series to Sunday and Monday. Sophomore Day Presentation will begin at 3:45 followed by the 9 inning game at 4pm on Sunday. The two 7 inning games will now be played on Monday with first pitch set for 12pm.
The Pioneers, who have had an up and down season, expect a full house in their last home series of the season. "When we play at home with the crowd behind us it's a whole different feeling especially when you have people there to support you. We're hoping a lot of the fans come out since it's the last home weekend. On Saturday (now moved to Sunday), we'll do something for the sophomores so hopefully we have a few more fans here to get us going," said Hunt. Despite having their struggles on the road this season, the Pioneers are 17-8 at home and will look to build off that this weekend against the visiting Tigers. For fans that can't attend Sunday's games, you can tune in and listen live to 88.5 WVCP-FM or watch the livestream video at the Vol State Baseball Twitter feed (@VSCCPioneersBSB) on Sunday and Monday.
