His 1963 team posted a 30-3 record, by far the best in the university’s baseball history.
Randy Mazey, who guided WVU to a fine 33-26 mark in his first season as the new head coach, admittedly is in favor of continuing the baseball rivalry with Pitt.
The teams split a two-game series this spring, each school winning on the road.
Continuing the series “would be a good match-up,” Mazey said. “I wouldn’t see why they (Pitt) wouldn’t want to continue playing”
Obviously, it would be an interesting series.
WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck was quoted recently that he’s liked to play other old rivals who no longer are scheduled in football or basketball.
Those he reportedly mentioned were Virginia, Virginia Tech, Penn State and even Pitt. But the thought herein is that this could be difficult to arrange.
All are in different conferences now and in football, there are spots for just three non-league games. And Maryland still occupies one of these.
