For the fifth consecutive season, Winston-Salem State University’s baseball program will suit up at BB&T Ballpark for the majority of their home games. The Rams will play 27 games at BB&T Ballpark from late January until mid-April.
Winston-Salem State has scheduled almost 100 games at BB&T Ballpark since the downtown facility opened in 2010. This season’s slate begins on Saturday, January 31, with a doubleheader against Mars Hill. The BB&T Ballpark schedule also includes nine games in February, 12 in March and four in April.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 12 and under. Fans can purchase their seats at the BB&T Ballpark Box Office, which is located under the scoreboard in right-center field. Outside food and beverages are not permitted, but concession stands will be open for each game.
Led by fifth-year head coach Kevin Ritsche, the Rams’ baseball program competes at the Division II level within the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association. WSSU posted a 36-19 record last year, and the program won its fourth consecutive CIAA conference championship. The Rams have won 35 or more games in three straight seasons. The school re-introduced its baseball program in 2010 after a 38-year hiatus.
“Winston-Salem State baseball has been an integral part of BB&T Ballpark’s history,” Dash President Geoff Lassiter said. “We are excited to watch this exciting Rams team play in our facility and compete for another CIAA championship.”
