MORGANTOWN -

Randy Mazey will guide his Mountaineers to Pittsburgh to face Penn State at PNC Park on May 10. The Pittsburgh Pirates announced the game Friday as a make-up for a previously scheduled meeting between the two teams that was postponed due to weather.

“Our program is very excited for the opportunity to play at PNC Park,” WVU baseball coach Randy Mazey said in a statement. “I’d like to thank the Nutting family, Frank Coonelly and the Pirates front office for helping facilitate the event. We look forward to a great game against Penn State in the best ballpark in Major League Baseball.”

Tickets will cost $10 for the general public, $7 for each team’s season ticket holders, partners, donors, alumni and faculty and $2 for students from WVU and Penn State. Pirates season ticket holders will also be offered $7 tickets.

First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.

“We are extremely humbled and excited to have this opportunity to play at PNC Park against such a quality opponent as West Virginia University,” Penn State head coach Rob Cooper said.  “The Pittsburgh Pirates are always leading the way when it comes to promoting baseball and education in this region of the country.  We are excited to take part in what we all hope will be a regular event. Thank you to all within the Pirates organization who have helped to make this possible.”

West Virginia (19-12, 6-3 Big 12) is currently gearing up to host a three-game series against No. 2 TCU (27-5, 8-1) this weekend at Monongalia County Ballpark, starting Friday evening at 6:30. Penn State sports a 12-20 record and will compete against Big Ten foe Maryland this weekend.
