Rowdy Calendar this week and beyond!
I’m the defensive replacement* for the Social Director this week as several baseball-related matters are coming up, and I have a few more details about them to share. Did y’all notice the little comeback Saturday night in Hickory? Down 11-8 in the top of the ninth and then down to our last out and still trailing, our team rallied for 7 runs in the ninth for a Power surge that shocked the Hickory Crawdads. This young team...
Ladies and Gents we have an actual Two-For-Tuesday. Two games for the price of one! Not only do you get two games for the price of one but that price is $1 GA ...seats and $3 Box seats. We also have $1 hot dogs, soda and popcorn. And that's not all... We also have Two-For-One 16 oz domestic cans.
It's a doubleheader sweep for West Virginia! The Power clubbed five home runs on the day as we split the season series with Greenville.
Game 1: West Virginia wi...ns 8-7 in eight innings
+ Mason Martin, Chris Sharpe, Calvin Mitchell HR
+ Gavin Wallace set down 10 of 11 in one stretch
+ Deon Stafford: GW Sac Fly in 8th inning
Game 2: West Virginia wins 10-3
+ Kyle Watson and Rafelin Lorenzo: Back-to-back HRs
+ Evan Piechota: 5IP, 1R in spot start W

Power Baseball is almost here! Let's get Rowdy!
The cinderella team, Loyola was beaten by Michigan and Villanova beat Kansas so that is who will be playing tonight in the NCAA Basketball Championship. (Just for the record, Purdue beat Michigan twice during the regular season (by one and 3 points) and Michigan beat Purdue once for the Big Ten championship). Too bad our big guy was injured in the first game of the tournament. Yeah, I'm still whining about that.
Power baseball ...
Update from The Power..........
Great to see everyone getting excited about the season. Now if we can just get Mother Nature to cooperate with us...
Ticket packages are ready and have been. Ran into a delay with the benefit books for some reason. I’ve been told the benefit books will be here Thursday. Can be challenging at times when you don’t actually produce anything and have to rely on a variety of vendors to make things happen!!!
And just want to clarify a detail on Brewfest CharlieWest.
Admission is regular ticket price or you likely already have a ticket with your respective ticket package.
The $30 is our regular party deck package which for this particular event, we provide the fan with 5 beer coupons that can be redeemed with the various craft beer vendors or any other beer stand.
We also have the band Of the Dell performing after the game. Let’s pack the park for this one.
And Tuesday will be the practice day. Just need to link up with Wyatt to confirm times.
Truly appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing you all at the ballpark soon.

Rowdy Calendar Mar 20th-Mar 27
It was good days for the Mountaineers and Purdue Boilermakers Friday and yesterday but not so good for Marshall. Too bad but someone had to win the WV-Marshall game and it was WVU. There was some Marshall baseball at Power Park over the weekend but most fans were indoors on Fri watching the basketball games, Sat, the weather was lousy and Sunday, I was watching Purdue (not sure about the rest of you). Purdue did win without their big guy but the...y do have plenty of 3 point shooters, let's hope they step up. Now onto this weeks schedule:
Tue March 20th - Debora Greathouse plays at Barney's from 5:30-8 pm. Good food, good friends and good music. As a side note, this is one of the few places in Charleston that has Amber Bock on tap. (hint, hint for Johnny Knight).
Wed March 21st - mixing it up a bit and having Trivia tonight at Tricky Fish starting around 7 pm.
Thurs March 22nd - second round of the NCAA tournament (Sweet Sixteen) starts today at 7:07 pm and 7:37 pm.
2018 Suddenlink High School Showcase Thurs-Sat at Power Park. 16 HS teams compete and for more information, go here. I don't think it is supposed to be very nice this weekend but we could go for our spring training.
Friday March 23rd - more second round. WVU plays Villanova at 7:27 pm in Boston. At least now they are in the Eastern time zone. Purdue plays Texas Tech around 9:57 pm. If WVU and Purdue win, they will play on Sun.
Sat March 24th - Green Chili Cookoff and Craft Beer 12 noon to 4 pm - there is a team competition but I think the rest of us will be drinking beers and having chili ($5 for 12 oz) cup and 50 cents for Chili tastings. All proceeds go to for Parkinson's research. This always used to be scheduled on St. Patrick's Day, not sure what happen this year.
More NCAA games scheduled TBD (Elite Eight).
Sun March 25th - Palm Sunday. More NCAA games scheduled. This could be the big matchup of Purdue and WVU. TBD
Only 2 1/2 weeks until Power Opening Day!
Hey Power fans! Have you seen this video that's gone viral recently? If so, that's our very own front office staff member Hannah Frenchick . If you ever wondered what we do during the off season traveling is one thing. Let us know if this gave you a smile tonight!
Rowdy Calendar March 13th-20th
I am back on track this week after having a cold all last week. WVU lost to Kansas in the Big 12 tournament and Marshall won the Conference USA championship and are going to the NCAA tournament. (Trivia note: I did not know this but Jon Elmore went to our church and played church basketball in his younger days) March Madness starts on Weds and ends with the Championship game on Mon April 3rd. Now for the schedule this week:
Weds, March 14th - st...art of NCAA tournament. Check your schedules for times and teams.
Thurs March 15th - the Ides of March, watch your back, Caesar didn't. Trivia will be at Tricky Fish starting around 7:00 pm. We will be watching the TV and our backs while playing trivia. More NCAA games.
Friday March 16th - all the important teams play today and hopefully, on Sunday. They are all in the East Bracket. #2 Purdue starts the festivities by playing #15 CSU Fullerton at 12:40 pm in Detroit. #13 Marshall plays #4 Witchita St at 1:30 pm in San Diego and followed by #5 WVU playing #12 Murray State at 4 pm. If Marshall and WVU win they will play each other on Sunday. Purdue would not play Marshall or WVU (whoever keeps winning) until the sweet 16.
Also, Marshall baseball is playing a 3 game series with UAB at Power Park this weekend. Game on Friday starts at 4 pm, Sat is at 3 pm and Sun is at 12 pm. Big conflict with WVU basketball at 4 pm on Friday. Decisions, decisions....
Sat March 17th - East End St. Patricks Day Pub Crawl from 6 pm to 2 am. Tickets are $25 and more information on this website. If it doesn't rain, it should be a good time.
