MORAGA, Calif. -- To steal a line from Major League Baseball's All-Star Game campaign, this time the Saint Mary's Fall World Series counts.
After a fall spent working out and adjusting to new head coach Eric Valenzuela and his staff, the Saint Mary's baseball team will bring the curtain down on its series of intersquad scrimmages by hosting the team's Fall World Series. Action begins Thursday at 3 p.m., with games also scheduled for Friday at 2:30 p.m. and Saturday at 12:45 p.m. Admission is free all three days and anyone is welcome to attend.
And, this year, there will be some high stakes on the line for both teams. The loser of the three-game set between the Red team and Blue team will report for duty on Sunday at 7 a.m. to host a free car wash just outside Louis Guisto Field. The car wash will last until 10 a.m. and is open to anyone.
"We've put in some good work this fall and I'm excited to see our guys compete for three straight days," Valenzuela said. "We wanted to have a little fun with it by involving the car wash, but I'm sure the fact that the losing team has to get up at 7 on a Sunday morning to wash cars will make for some highly competitive baseball all three days."
Saint Mary's begins the 2014 season on Feb. 14 when it plays the first of a four-game set at New Mexico State. For the entire 2014 schedule, click here.
