Uwharrie Wampus Cats release inaugural season schedule
Published 12:14 pm Thursday, April 13, 2023
The Uwharrie Wampus Cats have announced their season schedule, which features 25 home games from late May to late July this year at Albemarle’s Don Montgomery Park.
The team has also placed season memberships on sale at $125 for the season at the “Tickets” tab at wampuscatsbaseball.com. Single-game tickets, which go on sale later this month, will be $7.
The brand-new collegiate wood-bat team’s home slate features a Memorial Day home opener on May 29 at 6 p.m. when the team will welcome the Carolina Disco Turkeys. The Wampus Cats will also be at home on Father’s Day and on Independence Day.
Of the 25 games at home, high-profile match-ups include top regional opponents including the Carolina Disco Turkeys, the Wake Forest Fungo, The Kingsmen and the Southern Collegiate Baseball League’s Queen City Corndogs.
Away trips for the Wampus Cats include two trips to face the Boone Bigfoots and a trip to play the Wilmington Sharks, both of the Coastal Plain League. In addition to these games and trips to play the Disco Turkeys, the Wampus Cats also have a pair of away games at the Mooresville Spinners, a Charlotte area powerhouse, and two return trips to face The Kingsmen, who play out of Rock Hill, South Carolina.
“It was important for us to find opponents that would challenge our team in our first year,” said Wampus Cats team owner and president Greg Sullivan. “Once we started making headway with our roster and realized we’d have some very good talent coming in for us, we started looking to add a few more challenging opponents.”
The Wampus Cats-Disco Turkeys match-ups on the schedule will be for a rivalry trophy — the Highway 52 Cup. Another highlight is the Wampus Cats will play the Native American National Team on June 29. The July 4 opponent is the Greensboro Yard Goats, a semi-pro team that features former MLB draft picks and regularly sends players to play for the Savannah Bananas.
The team will play a schedule of 41 games.
Most games at Don Montgomery Park will start at 6:30 p.m. However, holiday games and Sunday games feature different start times.
