WILLIAMSPORT, N.C. (WNCT) — It’s finally game day for Greenville North State.
It’s been a long two days off for the team, who has had a chance to rest and recover ahead of the game.
The team will face a tough opponent Wednesday night against Lufkin, Texa but they are ready to play.
“We hung out with some of them yesterday at the picnic table right near the rec room, and they are pretty cool and stuff,” said JoeJoe Byrne, Greenville North State first baseman. “It’s going to be pretty exciting because we haven’t really played in a while. It feels like we haven’t played in like a week or so, but it’s only been like two or three days and we’re just ready to play today.”
Lufkin has two talented big pitchers: Hunter Ditsworth, 5-foot-11, 154 pounds, and Collin Ross, 5-foot-11 153 pounds.
Both have already pitched in the tournament and led their teams to wins.w
The game will be on ESPN at 7:30 p.m.
If North State wins, they advance automatically to the U.S. Championship game Saturday.
If they lose, they will play the winner of Connecticut and New Jersey Thursday.
