CVCC baseball hosting Inaugural First Pitch Banquet

HICKORY, N.C. — Celebrating its 10th season, the Catawba Valley Community College baseball program will host its first-ever 'First Pitch Banquet' on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019 at 6 p.m. This special evening and dinner will be an opportunity for Red Hawk baseball supporters to help kick off the 2019 season.

The event will be headlined by a special sitdown interview with MLB All-Star and coach Bryan Harvey, who played nine seasons with the California Angels and the Florida Marlins. Harvey was elected to the MLB All-Star Game twice — as a member of the American League in 1991 and in the National League in 1993. He led the American League with 46 saves in 1991. He finished second in the 1988 American League Rookie of the Year balloting and was named Rookie Pitcher of the Year by The Sporting News. Harvey currently owns and operates the Harvey Baseball Academy while serving as a special pitching coach for the Texas Rangers organization.

The 'First Pitch' dinner will start with a meet and greet with the current 2019 Red Hawk Baseball team at 6 p.m. followed by the dinner and program starting at 6:30 p.m. The dinner will take place in the brand new Workforce Solutions Complex on the Catawba Valley Community College main campus (click here for a campus map).
