From staff reports
The first pitch of the 2011 season is almost a month away, but USC Beaufort baseball fans will have the chance to meet this year's team next week.
The Sand Sharks will hold an informal "meet and greet" from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday in Palmetto Electric's New River Community Room off U.S. 278.
All fans are welcome to attend but are asked to RSVP to administrative assistant Kelley Alcorn by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 208-8067.
The 18th-ranked Sand Sharks are scheduled to begin the season Feb. 5 against No. 16 Union University in Jackson, Tenn. Their home opener against No. 24 Brewton-Parker is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Feb. 9 at Hardeeville's Richard Gray Baseball Complex.
