Thursday will be a double-header against Mississippi’s Holmes Community College with games beginning at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

The first pitch of the second game on Thursday will be thrown out by Dr. Bryan Frichter, the St. Bernard Sports Hall of Fame’s president, and will be caught by Dominic Curole, a Nunez athlete, who received the hall of fame’s 2017 Amateur Athlete of the Year Award. The St. Bernard Sports Hall of Fame is also a sponsor of the baseball team for the 2017 – 2018 season.

Saturday’s game starts at 11:00 a.m. and is an inter-squad scrimmage where all Nunez Pelicans players will have the opportunity to take the field.
