ECU BASEBALL: Former East Carolina University shortstop Jack Reinheimer became the 21st Pirate in program history to make his Major League Debut when he stepped into the batters box at Wrigley Field (Chicago, Ill.) on Aug. 2 for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

With his debut, ECU has had seven players appear in a MLB game this season joining Shawn Armstrong (Cleveland Indians), Jharel Cotton (Oakland Athletics), Chris Heston (Seattle Mariners), Jeff Hoffman (Colorado Rockies), Seth Maness (Kansas City Royals) and Mike Wright (Baltimore Orioles).

Four years after he was drafted in the fifth round (pick 147 overall) by the Seattle Mariners in the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft, Reinheimer pinch hit for pitcher Patrick Corbin in the fourth inning facing left-hander John Lester of the Chicago Cubs, where Lester got the best of him recording his ninth strikeout of the night and 2,000th of his career in a Cubs' 16-4 victory.
