Right about now, around 10 pm on Tuesday, Hagerstown Community College’s baseball team was planning on leaving for Grand Junction, Colorado via bus for the NJCAA Division I World Series.
Sometimes plans change and they did for the Hawks, due to requirements by the NJCAA in fullfilling pre-tournament requirements.
Coach Scott Jennings said the Hawks would get a practice session in on Wednesday before they head West, now scheduled for Thursday morning — by plane.
Jennings told me this evening the NJCAA needed to have the Hawks in Grand Junction on Thursday. The bus trip has been reduced greatly from its original 1,8600-mile venture. The team will fly from Baltimore to Denver and then make a four-hour bus trip into Grand Junction. while they’ll miss the youth clinic Thursday at 5 p.m. (MDT), they’ll be on hand for all the other festivities.
Jennings said there is paperwork to be completed Friday morning followed by a media photo session in which players will have their pictures taken onto trading cards.
The Hawks will be hosted by the Rotary Club there and will be feted at a noon luncheon and then have practice from 3-4:30 p.m. Afterward, there will be a banquet.
Saturday there will be a picnic, hosted by Rotary, for the HCC players andfamilies at 3:30 following an 11:30-1 practice. Saturday night the Hawks will watch the games taking place.
They’ll make their initial appearance at 9:30 Hagerstown time on Sunday night against Grayson Community College (Tex.).
“There were regulations attached with making it to the World Series,” Jennings said. “We moved on to plan B and that involved flights and the HCC administration came through with the flights to make it happen.”
