MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Mountaineer fans are invited to Hawley Field on Saturday, Aug. 23 for the first annual WVU men’s basketball charity slow pitch softball game. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
The game will feature the WVU men’s basketball staff (coaches, support staff and managers) versus the current WVU men’s basketball team. Fans who attend will be asked to give a small donation to benefit the Conquer Chiari Research Foundation (www.conquerchiari.org).
“This is a great opportunity for our basketball program to have a little fun to kick off the school year while also raising money for a good cause,” said WVU coach Bob Huggins. “With some new faces on this year’s team, it is also a good opportunity for Mountaineer fans to come out to see our team in person for the first time.”
