Black and White World Series - The Quest for the Cup

The annual Edgewood College Eagle Baseball, Black and White World Series will begin Thursday, October 9 at 6pm (BP at 5pm), at “The Chuck” (Stampfl Field), in Verona.

The Series is a three-game format. Game 1 is a nine-inning affair, with games 2 and 3 being seven inning.

This Series marks the annual completion of the Eagles' fall season and traditionally pits two of the assistant coaches against each other for a year of bragging rights. Coaches Matt Eichhorn and Nick Pepper will be leading their respective squads while Coaches Brisack and Wachholz complete fall evaluations. The coaches conducted a draft and even made some trades before Thursday’s first game.

For the players, this is the ultimate accomplishment of their fall season – winning the coveted Eagle Cup! The perpetual trophy is kept for one year by the winning team. Like Lord Stanley’s Cup, it will be taken to homes, elementary schools, dinners and even classes – a proud symbol of what teamwork and dedication can accomplish.

A member of each game’s winning team will write a game article for submission.
