ECU baseball is 16-3 and ranked No. 8 in the country, but it’s not their play on the field grabbing national attention. Rather, it’s their head-turning home run celebration involving an orange safety cone.
C.J. Mayhue tossed three scoreless innings of relief, while Seth Caddell (two hits, four RBI) and Thomas Francisco (three hits) paced No. 9 ECU baseball’s offense in an 11-8 series sweep victory Sunday afternoon.
Garrett Saylor tossed a career-high four scoreless innings and the No. 9 East Carolina offense pounded out 11 hits in an 11-5 series-clinching win over Illinois State Saturday at Lewis Field inside Clark-LeClair Stadium.
Under the direction of third-year head football coach Mike Houston, ECU finally opened the spring practice period with its first official workout late Friday afternoon on Hight Field inside the Cliff Moore Practice Complex.
