Tar Heels to host Ontario for free baseball exhibition

Bookmark and Share

Defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion and College World Series participant North Carolina will host the Ontario Blue Jays in a free exhibition contest at 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, UNC head coach Mike Fox announced Friday.
The Blue Jays are an 18-and-under team from Toronto that competes in the Premier Baseball League of Ontario.
"I think this will be a fun opportunity for our team to play against some outside competition in the fall," Fox said of the game, which is exempt from Carolina's 56-game allotment due to the Blue Jays' international status. "Our players will be excited to face another team after scrimmaging against each other all month."
The exhibition matchup with Ontario is open to all spectators and admission is free.
Carolina also will host its annual Fall World Series on Oct. 4-6, 11-13 and 15 (if necessary).
Details on the FWS will be available on GoHeels.com in September.
