Posted: Updated:
Miami, FL - MIAMI- The East Carolina baseball team celebrated a Conference USA series victory over Florida Atlantic with an unexpected meeting with NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.

Irvin took time out to take a picture with many of the Pirate players. He also had a photo with Pirate head coach Billy Godwin.

"I was like a ten year old," said Godwin on the unlikely encounter with Irvin. "As a huge Dallas Cowboys fan, it was really a neat deal."

Irvin tweeted about meeting the Pirate baseball team later that day.
