Coastal Carolina University has basketball, tennis, baseball and softball teams playing at various times and locations, including the baseball team participating in some tournaments at TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark before the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ season starts the first weekend in April.
