Greenville sports store has ties to NCWC national title

If you were in town in June of 1989, you have to remember North Carolina Wesleyan's baseball team winning the NCAA Div. III national championship in Bristol, Ct. in the wee hours of that special Monday morning.

The guy who propelled the Battling Bishops to that 8-7 win over California State -Stanislaus with his 13th-inning home run, then-senior Eric Jarman, now is in the sports equipment business in his hometown of Greenville.

Jarman, who played baseball for Ron Vincent at Greenville Rose, now owns Stadium Sports in Greenville which is located at the corner of 14th Street and Charles Blvd,  just down from Minges Coliseum and Clark-LeClair Stadium.

The store specializes in equipment for baseball, fast pitch softball and volleyball, while carrying other sports equipment as well. Half of the store is an East Carolina University Spirit Store and it is an official ECU Licensed Retail Champion.

Some of our brands it carries include Easton, Wilson, DeMarini, Mizuno, Louisville Slugger, Combat, Marucci, Russell, The Game, Cutter & Buck, Asics, Under Armour and Hurley.
