Pirate fans watching the nationally-ranked ECU baseball team.

According to a question the NCAA placed on its Twitter, fans voted Clark-LeClair Stadium one of the best in college baseball. Out of every athletic division in college sports, East Carolina University’s home stadium was the most mentioned ballpark outside of universities within the Southeastern Athletic Conference.

Mississippi State University’s Dudy Noble Field received the most votes, as well as the University of Arkansas’ Baum-Walker Stadium and Alex Box Stadium at Louisiana Southern University.

The NCAA posted a question on its Twitter account, encouraging fans to reply and comment with which college had the best baseball stadium.

For the second season in a row, ECU was again the host of an NCAA Regional Tournament. The Pirates hosted the 2018 Greenville Regional, but fell to advance with a 1-2 record.

In a post on ECU baseball’s Twitter account, sophomore infielder Thomas Francisco talked about ECU fans and how they compare to other colleges across the country.

“One thing I’ll say about ECU is that the fans are the best in the country, hands down.” said Francisco.

During the 2019 postseason, ECU had a different performance, as they had a 4-1 record and advanced all the way to the Louisville Super Regional Tournament.

The Pirates’ season ended when they fell to Louisville in its Super Regional Tournament on June 8.
