The Sailfish baseball team, under the direction of second-year head coach and Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famer Gary Carter, opens its 2011 season Tuesday, Feb. 1, at Jupiter's Roger Dean Stadium, one of the top minor league ballparks in the country.
The opening pitch is set for 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The Sailfish, who are coming off a 17-win campaign in Coach Carter's first season, take on the Lynn University Fighting Knights, who finished 16-37-1 last year. In 2009, Lynn captured its first NCAA Division II National Championship under head coach Rudy Garbalosa.
