Georgia Highlands to Play Spring Baseball
Schedule at PG Park South at LakePoint
EMERSON, Ga. – Twenty-nine home games highlight Georgia Highland’s 2015 baseball schedule. All home games will be played at PG Park South located on the beautiful South Campus of LakePoint sports; a state-of-the-art all-turf facility.
“With this baseball facility, we will be able to confidently recruit top prospects and contend for championships in a first-rate environment,” Georgia Highlands Head Coach Mike Marra said. “For Charger fans, the LakePoint Facility will provide a comfortable and convenient setting to enjoy the excitement of the game. This world class venue will also enable us to host top programs from all over the nation as well as NJCAA tournaments, bringing national prestige and recognition to our programs right here to Bartow County."
The Chargers will begin practicing at their new home come January.
PG Spring Swing Director Kevin Herlihy also spoke on the announcement.
“As Perfect Game continues to expand into college baseball this was the perfect opportunity for us. Partnering with Coach Marra and Georgia Highlands is good for the community and good for baseball. Coach Marra has a great track record of building programs from scratch; we see Georgia Highlands being no different. I think we have the chance to be part of something special.”
The second year program opens play at LakePoint with doubleheader against Roane State on February 7. Georgia Highlands will play single games against Cleveland State and Piedmont (Feb 10-11), Chattanooga State (Feb. 13) and Shorter (JV, Feb. 18), plus a doubleheader versus Chattahoochee Valley CC (Feb. 21). The February home schedule rounds out with a set of home games against Central Alabama CC (Feb. 24) and a doubleheader with Indian Hills (Feb 28).
The conference home schedule is slated to start March 3 with a single game versus South Georgia. Conference play at home picks back up March 13-14 against in-state foe ABAC. March 20-21 will see the Chargers square off with Andrew College. A single game with out of conference opponent Cleveland State on March 25 rounds out the March home schedule.
