Baseball Welcomes Alumni Back To Campus
SPOKANE, Wash. - The Gonzaga University baseball team will welcome back Bulldog alumni to campus this weekend as it hosts its annual Alumni Weekend.
Festivities begin Friday with the annual golf tournament. The shotgun tournament will take place at the Meadowwood Golf Course with a 10 a.m. tee time. After golf, alumni are welcomed back to Patterson Baseball Complex at Washington Trust Field for batting practice at 4 p.m. The day concludes with a social at Jack and Dan's where head coach Mark Machtolf will update alum on everything Gonzaga baseball.
The alumni game will take place Saturday at noon when they face the 2013 Gonzaga baseball team at Patterson Baseball Complex at Washington Trust Field. Fans are encouraged to attend and the gates will be open to the general public at 11 a.m. and admission will be free of charge.
A new wrinkle was added to the weekend with the Alumni Home Run Derby. The derby will start after the conclusion of the game on Saturday.
"We are excited for the 2012 Gonzaga Baseball Alumni Weekend, as we welcome back all of our great alumni," Machtolf said. "This group represents the strong history and tradition of what Gonzaga Baseball is today and we are thrilled to have them all back on campus for a fun, memory filled weekend of being a Zag!"
