Baseball over the River

Home-field advantage.

A phrase used lightly for the baseball team. With a season overshadowed by sports cuts, bad weather and a struggle to find a place to play, expectations were at an all-time low.

Following the decision to cut the program in December, six starters decided to take their talent elsewhere.

The University said their reason behind cutting the program was because the team played at Ambler. The solution to this issue was resolved when the Camden Riversharks offered Campbell’s Field for the team.

The University ignored the proposed solution and finalized their decision.

Despite all the chaos and a rough start to the season, the Owls are looking up after grabbing their second straight conference series win. The team’s victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats moved the team to 4-5 in conference play.

The Owls were struggling for the first two months of the regular season, but here in early April strong bats and stellar pitching is what the team hopes drives them for the rest of the season.

The Owls will next hit the Diamond at Campbell’s Field this weekend when they host UCF for a 3-game set.
