The Ellsworth Community College men's baseball team has announced its schedule for the upcoming 2014 season. The Panthers will open up their season on the road, traveling to Millington, TN, to play against Rend Lake College on Feb. 17.
ECC's home opener will be against Region XI Division I Marshalltown Community College on Mar. 16 for a pair of games at 2 and 5 pm.
This is Panther Head Coach Travis Akre's first spring season with ECC and he is looking to the sophomores on the team for leadership. "We have some great sophomore leadership on the mound along with talented freshman position players. This group has worked extremely hard to prepare for this season!"
ECC will play its first 16 games on the road. "This is a very tough schedule, but that's what we prefer. Playing these quality teams in the beginning is going to prepare us for our tough conference schedule later in the season," commented Coach Akre.
