3 Hole Punch: No baseball on Sundays, a politician without a platform, and MEAT
Here are three new (and short) North Carolina stories, hand-curated for you, the discerning Rabbit Hole reader.
3. Southern Baptists + Sunday Baseball = NOPE
Wake Forest is in the College World Series for the first time since 1955. To give you an idea how long ago that was: The university was still known as Wake Forest College and was still located in the actual town of Wake Forest (it moved to Winston-Salem, its current home, in 1956). If you’re wondering: Yes, the original campus is still there. It’s been home to the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary ever since the move.
The current iteration of the Wake Forest baseball team keeps winning. They beat LSU last night in a nailbiter, despite the fact that Tigers fans tried to instill good mojo in their team by downing a frightening amount of Jell-o shots at a nearby bar.
Before that, the Demon Deacons beat Stanford 3-2 on Saturday. Wake has the number one overall seed in the college baseball playoffs, and they haven’t lost a game this postseason. Even on Sundays.
