Wildcats to Wrap Up Official Practices with Fall World Series

UPDATE: The first pitch time for game one on Friday, October 30 has been changed to 3 p.m. It was originally scheduled for 4 p.m.

MANHATTAN, Kan.
– The K-State baseball team will square off in a three-game, intra-squad Fall World Series starting this weekend to wrap up its official practices.

The trio of seven-inning contests at Tointon Family Stadium are set for Friday at 3 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and Wednesday, November 4 at 5 p.m., with all featuring free admission. Gates will open one hour before first pitch.

The contests provide an opportunity for fans to preview the Wildcats as they move towards their season opener on February 19, 2016 at UC Riverside. The team has been taking part in their official fall practices since the end of September.

K-State, led by 13th-year head coach Brad Hill, returns 17 letterwinners from last year’s team that reached the Big 12 Baseball Championship for the eighth time in the last nine years. Key returners include All-Big 12 selections shortstop Tyler Wolfe, catcher Tyler Moore and pitcher Corey Fischer – all three of which help make up the Wildcats’ nine-man senior class. In total, 19 upperclassmen are featured on K-State’s 36-man roster.
