JONESBORO, Ark. (9/7/17) – The Arkansas State baseball program will hold its annual “Alumni Weekend” for former A-State baseball players and their families Oct. 13-14 in conjunction with the Red Wolves’ football homecoming festivities throughout the weekend.
Head coach Tommy Raffo and the rest of the A-State baseball program would like to encourage all former players and their families to come back and reconnect with their former teammates.
“We had a great turnout last year with our A-State baseball alumni and look forward to a bigger weekend this year,” said Raffo. “It is special playing under the lights on Friday at the “Tom” with our former players and team. The highly competitive golf tournament on Saturday with many of our alumni is a great event. It is a fun time for all those planning to return to campus for homecoming.”
The activities begin Friday night with the Alumni Baseball Game that will pit former players against the current A-State baseball team. Pregame activities will begin at 6 p.m. with first pitch set for 7 p.m.
The weekend continues with an A-State Baseball Alumni Golf Tournament set for Saturday morning. Registration will get underway at 7:30 a.m. at Sage Meadows Country Club with a shotgun start for the event set for 8 a.m. Lunch will be served at noon during the tournament. Cost to play is $100 per person or $400 per foursome for 18 holes and includes green fees, cart, range balls, snacks, and drinks during play.
The A-State football team will play Coastal Carolina at 6 p.m. Saturday night.
Former players that plan to play or coach (if not able to play) in the Alumni Baseball Game should contact Coach Raffo by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 870-680-4337.
