BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State has added an April 10 nonconference game at North Carolina to the 2018 baseball schedule.
First pitch for that Tuesday game is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Boshamer Stadium in Chapel Hill.
In a series dating back to 1974, this will be the 29th meeting between the Tar Heels and Mountaineers, who last beat UNC in 1997. Their last meeting occurred in 2015, as current seniors Reed Howell (starting pitcher), Luke Watts (relief pitcher) and Conner Leonard (first baseman) played that day.
North Carolina is currently 15-10 overall and 5-4 in the ACC.
App State’s trip to Chapel Hill will follow a weekend home series against Troy and come a day before the Mountaineers play a Wednesday game in Greensboro against North Carolina A&T.
