Former Calvin Softball Player Throws Out First Pitch At Pirates-Cardinals Game at PNC Park

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

During her four years on the Calvin softball team, Loren Scarbrough faced many pressure-packed moments as a fulltime infield starter. None of those moments, she said, could compare to what she faced on August 8 when she was chosen to throw out the first pitch in front of a sell-out crowd of 38,593 fans prior to a game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park.

Adorned in a Pirates jersey, Scarbrough responded to the moment in fine fashion, zipping a pitch over the inside corner. The fiery fastball drew a standing ovation from the crowd - listed as the seventh-largest in PNC Park history.

2009 Calvin Men's Soccer Schedule

With 16 returning letterwinners including five who either received first or second team All-MIAA recognition a year ago, the Calvin men’s soccer team will seek to win its third consecutive league title this fall.

Over the last two years, Calvin has produced a combined won-loss record of 29-10-3 including 24-2-2 in MIAA play. A key to Calvin’s success has been its defensive play, particularly in conference games. During its 2007 MIAA title season, the Knights gave up just nine goals in league games to lead all conference schools. In 2008, the Knights gave up just eight goals in league play, again leading all MIAA schools.
