Penguins Open Spring Break Trip Friday

The Youngstown State baseball team will play eight road games in a 10-day span, beginning with the opener of a three-game series at Cincinnati on Friday at UC’s Marge Schott Stadium. The games on Friday and Saturday will start at 4 p.m., and first pitch in Sunday’s finale is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Senior shortstop Jacke Healey had a standout season-opening series, highlighted by a two-homer effort in the season opener on Feb. 27. Healey hit a solo home run in the third inning, and he followed that up with his first career grand slam in the eighth. Healey hit eight home runs in 2009 in his first season on campus, which was the most ever by a Penguin shortstop. He went 5-for-11 overall last week with team highs in RBIs (six), runs scored (five), homers (two) and slugging percentage (1.091).
