Fall baseball practice opens today

-- The 49ers' baseball team opens fall practice today at 1:30 p.m, going again Saturday at noon and Sunday at 5 p.m.

Charlotte is coming off a 39-17 record (20-7 in the Atlantic 10). The 49ers tied school records last season with 17 consecutive home victories and 29 home victories overall. They return players like pitcher Corey Roberts and infielder Justin Roland, who both made All-American teams last season.

The 49ers' pro scout day is Oct. 12 and alumni day is Oct. 23.

-- We'll probably have news over the next few days about which two teams will fill out the Charleston Classic -- the tournament the 49ers' men's basketball team is playing in November --as well as who Charlotte's first-round opponent will be.

-- The 49ers volleyball team hosts three matches today and Saturday. Although it's called the Hilton University Place Classic, it should be called the Ampersand Classic. Charlotte's opponents are William & Mary, N.C. A&T and Alabama A&M.

-- The men's soccer team is playing in a tournament in Birmingham, Ala., against Alabama-Birmingham tonight and Memphis on Saturday.

-- The women are at UNC Greensboro today and home to UNC Wilmington on Sunday. Coach John Cullen's team (3-1) then plays six straight on the road. They're not home again until Oct. 6 against St. Bonaventure.
