Short Season A West Virginia Black Bears
The West Virginia Black Bears will get the season started on Friday, June 19th at Monongalia County Ballpark near Morgantown, West Virginia. The Black Bears open the season with a three-game weekend home stand with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.
The Black Bears had an announcement today:
Bill Brink of the Post-Gazette reports that First Round Pick Kevin Newman will report to Morgantown to play for the Black Bears.
Many local fans, including this writer, will be heading out to see the Black Bears in action since they are just a short drive. We are very excited to add the Black Bears to our weekly Pittsburgh Pirates Minor League Report.
