Gulf Coast Baseball prepares for home opener on Thursday night

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - After playing the first three games of the season on the road, the Gulf Coast Baseball team is preparing for its first home game of the season on Thursday. 

The commodores traveled down to Bradenton, Florida to play State College of Florida on Friday, losing 18-3. They had a quick turnaround and played a double header on Saturday, winning the first game 10-6 and losing the second game 10-3.

Defense was an area of struggle for the Commodores. They gave up 34 runs in 3 just games.

Gulf Coast will look to turn things around against St. Johns River in its home opener. 

That match up will kick off a four-game stretch for the Commodores.

Gulf Coast Assistant Coach Tyler Younger says the team is ready to finally play at home. 

"Guys are definitely excited. We've had a good week of practice. As you can see, guys got a lot of energy. They're looking forward to it. We've got some good teams coming into town this weekend. It'll be good for our team. Good competition," said Younger.

Thursday's game starts at 5pm CT.
