WHAT: The 3rd Annual Freedom Classic is coming, a series that brings college baseball to Historic Grainger Stadium as the Naval Academy and the Air Force Academy battle in an exciting four game event at the end of February.
The Eight…Eighties of Kinston are sponsors for the event and invite all active military and their families to attend. This is a free event for all active military, and the Eight…Eighties hope to bring 3,000 people to the Kinston stadium. They invite military from Seymour Johnson Airforce Base, Fort Bragg, Camp LeJeune, and the National Guard. Admission to the stadium will be free along with concessions (a hot dog and soda). A wounded warrior will throw out the first pitch, and there will be C-shirt giveaways.
