THE FLATS – Georgia Tech baseball’s fall slate of action begins Saturday, Oct. 6 as the Yellow Jackets hosts SEC foe South Carolina in the first of two exhibitions at Russ Chandler Stadium.
Tech will also welcome Chattahoochee Valley Community College on Oct. 27 in the second fall contest with both games scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
Fans of all ages are invited to attend with admission for both games being free to the public. Complimentary parking will also be available for both games in the Klaus Parking Deck, with gates opening 90 minutes prior to first pitch.
Concessions will be available to fans on the third-base side for the South Carolina matchup on Oct. 6.
In addition to its two exhibitions, Tech will also play its annual White vs. Gold World Series during the week of Oct. 29 – Nov. 2, with complete scheduling announced at a later date.
This fall will be Tech fans’ first chance to see the 2019 Yellow Jackets prior to the spring schedule. Georgia Tech returns a talented roster from last season, including four of its top six hitters from an offense that was second in the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2018. The Jackets also return a bevy of talent on the mound, including Xzavion Curry, Tristin English, Andy Archer and Connor Thomas.
In total, the Yellow Jackets currently boast a total of five student-athletes (Chase Murray, Kyle McCann, English, Curry and Thomas) on D1Baseball’s fall list of the top 150 baseball draft prospects for 2019. Only two teams in the entire country have more.
