WCJC BASEBALL GAME/MIXER AGAINST ALVIN PHOTO
Wharton County Junior College outfielder Jared Lira of Corpus Christi gets struck with the ball just above his left knee while attempted to bunt during the Pioneers’ game against Alvin College on Thursday. The Pioneers won both games by 6-4 scores to improve to 21-17 in conference and 27-26 overall. WCJC had fantastic fan support as the Wharton Chamber of Commerce and Wharton Babe Ruth sponsored a Chamber Mixer at Thursday’s home game. Fans enjoyed free food and 70th Anniversary memorabilia, which was passed out by the WCJC Office of Marketing and Communications at Tiger Field. The Pioneers qualified for the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 14 Tournament which begins on Friday, May 13, at Constellation Field in Sugar Land.
