Cameron Pittman commits to Virginia Tech

Saturday, the Virginia Tech baseball team picked up a commitment in the trasnfer portal from Cameron Pittman who played at Radford in 2024. The Hokies got an up close look at him as they played a home-and-home with the Highlanders.

In the first matchup at Radford in February, Pittman went 2-for-4 with a run scored in a 14-4 Virginia Tech victory. In mid-April, the Highlanders came to Blacksburg and lost, 7-2, with Pittman reaching base three times on a hit and two walks. He led Radford with a .357 batting average in 48 games, collecting 66 hits, eight doubles, eight triples and two home runs.

ACC has had a very good start to the Super Regionals

To say that the ACC has had a very good NCAA Tournament would be an understatement. Five teams reached the Super Regionals with three teams already punching their ticket to Omaha, Nebraska for the College World Series beginning June 14.

Florida State swept UConn, winning the opener Friday, 24-4, then surviving the Huskies' in extra innings Saturday to advance. Virginia took down Kansas State and former Virginia Tech coach Peter Hughes in two games. After winning the opener Friday night, 7-4, the Cavaliers completed the sweep Saturday with a 10-4 win. North Carolina swept Big 12 foe West Virginia to advance to Omaha next weekend. The Tar Heels rallied to win the opener with three runs in the bottom of the ninth for an 8-6 win before winning a 2-1 pitchers duel Saturday night.

Clemson dropped their first game Saturday at home to Florida, 10-7 and will look to stay alive Sunday in Game 2 and force a Game 3 Monday. NC State is one win away from Omaha after blasting Georgia, 18-1, in Game 1 Saturday in Athens, Georgia.
