A trip to the ballpark has become an American summertime tradition.
Last week, contingents from NEC members Robert Morris and St. Francis Brooklyn took part in that tradition and went out to the “old ballgame.”
Robert Morris hosted RMU Night at PNC Park in Pittsburgh on June 27.
The University reserved a block of tickets in the All-You-Can-Eat Seats so students, alumni and friends could “come together and show Pittsburgh what we’re all about.”
RMU President Gregory Dell’Omo is no Doug Drabek, but he does have a decent arm. The right-hander threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Pirates’ 3-2 victory over the Mets.
One day earlier, St. Francis Brooklyn men’s soccer manager Tom Giovatto showed off his arm at MCU Park in Brooklyn. Giovatto and his captains threw out the first pitch prior to the New York-Penn League game between the Cyclones and Aberdeen.
The Terriers, who are reigning NEC men’s soccer champions, received on-field recognition as part of Cyclones’ Soccer Night on June 26.

What a win for the #Buccos! The Colonials must have given them some good luck.
