Following West Virginia’s 10-0 victory against Pitt in the baseball edition of the Backyard Brawl, former basketball guard Erik Stevenson announced on Twitter that he will be throwing out the first pitch for Friday’s game against Oklahoma.

Stevenson wrapped up his final year of eligibility at West Virginia, helping the Mountaineers return to the NCAA Tournament in March. Stevenson averaged 15.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists on 43 percent shooting from the field. The fifth-year senior played his best towards the end of the year, recording five-straight 20-point-plus games at the end of February.

Stevenson is pursuing a professional career in basketball. The Lacey, Wa. native participated in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in April, competing in-front of scouts.

WVU baseball is currently on a nine-game winning streak, sweeping TCU and Baylor. West Virginia has a run differential of plus-66 during their winning streak. The Mountaineers and Sooners will begin on Friday night in Morgantown with a first pitch scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
