The Butler baseball program hosted its annual alumni gathering on a gorgeous sunny Saturday, Oct. 9. Forty-six former Bulldogs came out for the event, the largest turnout in the event's history.
Alumni spanning from the class of 1970 to 2010 were in attendance. Players from Butler's championship teams of 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000 were recognized as well as players named to all-decade teams. All-Decade plaques will soon be displayed in Butler's indoor hitting facility.
In the alumni game, the current Bulldog squad scored an 8-3 win over the alumni.
All Butler baseball fans are invited to attend Long Ball In The Fall, which will start at 10 a.m. on Homecoming Saturday (Oct. 23). For a $10 donation, fans can take batting practice and swing for the fences at Bulldog Park. Food and drinks will be available.
