ECU Softball expansion gets underway.

As I passed by the corner of Greenville and Charles Blvd. I noticed something a little different. I began to slow my vehicle and was amazed at the number of trees that lay flat on the ground. Beginning Wednesday, October 21, T.A. Loving Company in collaboration with ER Lewis, began the removal of trees and other shrubbery from the site of what is soon to be a new 1,000 seat softball stadium that will includes 250 chair back seats, a press box, toilets, and other support elements.

A Great Shirt For An Even Better Cause

If you have ever read Boneyard Banter, there is a pretty good chance you know who Whitey is. He could just be another username on Boneyard that you see replying in a funny way to a topic or coming up with a clever nickname for something about the Pirates. However, Whitey’s presence on Boneyard could mean a lot more than that if you are one of the people that has been fortunate enough to be touched by his kindness and sincerity. If you don’t read Boneyard (and you should) then let me pass along an incredible story about one of the biggest East Carolina University fans that I have ever come into contact with.
