Baseball To Hold Long Ball In The Fall Fundraiser On Saturday

Oct. 22, 2008

Butler baseball parents, alumni and fans are invited to attend the Bulldogs' annual Long Ball in the Fall fundraiser, which will take place this Saturday (Oct. 25) beginning at 10:00 a.m. at Bulldog Park.

Long Ball in the Fall coincides with the Butler University Homecoming and features a home run derby-type competition and tailgate party at Bulldog Park.

Butler players will take pledges for the farthest ball they can hit in batting practice during the day. Parents, alumni and friends can take some swings off Butler coaches and players as well for a small $5 donation to the program.

Tailgate-type food will be provided by parents of Butler players, and team apparel items will be available for purchase as well.

All donations go towards the Butler baseball program and will help fund the player's equipment and team budget.

In case of inclement weather, the make-up date for the event will take place on Sunday, Oct. 26, at 10:00 a.m.
