It’s springtime, which means baseball, America’s greatest pastime, is back — and so are the No. 1-ranked Tar Heels.
There is no better way to celebrate the beautiful spring weather than by going out to Boshamer Stadium to watch the Tar Heels play some baseball. It’s always a good time to enjoy baseball in Chapel Hill, but this year is especially enjoyable.
Here are a few reasons why:
￼ We are number one. UNC is the top-ranked baseball program in the country. Not too shabby for a “basketball school.” Maybe Larry Fedora and Giovani Bernard have been giving them some motivational speeches.
￼ Skye Bolt. The kid is a stud, flat out. He was a top recruit coming in and he has not disappointed. He’s only a freshman, so we’ve got a little time with him, too. Plus he has by far the coolest name in college baseball. Skye Bolt!
￼ It’s nice outside. Everyone should come out and enjoy the weather at the newly renovated Bosh. There is no better way to spend an evening than with some peanuts, Cracker Jacks and a Carolina victory.
￼ We are Carolina. Part of the experience of being a UNC student is supporting all our sports. So grab a few friends and support the team. The tickets are free.
￼ Go Heels, go America. Baseball is America’s greatest pastime and has been played since the 19th century. It’s a quintessentially American experience.
Of course, baseball is just one of the many sports at UNC that doesn’t get its fair share of the limelight. Broaden your horizons. Non-revenue sports are just as thrilling as football and basketball.
