WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Feb. 1, 2017) - Winston-Salem State University's baseball program will play the majority of its 2017 home games inside BB&T Ballpark, the home of the Winston-Salem Dash. The Rams' season opener is set for this Friday, February 3, in downtown Winston-Salem against Millersville.
Winston-Salem State has claimed five of the last six Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) championships. Last year, the Rams posted a 31-22 record and earned the CIAA's regular season title, while WSSU recorded a school-record 42 victories and fell two wins shy of a berth in the NCAA Division II College World Series in 2015. Head coach Kevin Ritsche has claimed five consecutive CIAA Coach of the Year honors.
Tickets for all Rams games at BB&T Ballpark are $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 12 and under. Fans can purchase their seats on gameday at the Baker Roofing Box Office, which is located under the scoreboard in right-center field. Outside food and beverages are not permitted, but concession stands will be open.
"Winston-Salem State baseball has become an important part of our schedule each year," Dash President Geoff Lassiter said. "We are excited to watch Coach Ritsche and the Rams continue their recent success, and we encourage Dash fans to follow the Rams before the Carolina League's season begins."
