Pirates complete final preparations for NCAA Super Regionals

LUBBOCK (WNCT) – East Carolina’s Cliff Godwin ran his team through a near 90 minute practice on Thursday afternoon, as the Pirates completed the preparations for Texas Tech and game one of this NCAA Super Regional.

For the second straight day the Pirates spent parts of the workout working on the unique field at Texas Tech. Both infielders and outfielders took different kinds of ground balls and bouncing balls that you wouldn’t get on regular grass.  FieldTurf was installed in 2007 at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.

The Pirate players still plan on wearing their normal metal cleats for the series.

Pirate Coach Cliff Godwin met the media shortly after today’s workout.  We’ll have more on that later tonight.
