Alumni Game and Barbecue Rescheduled to Sept. 23

Sept. 15, 2017

STORRS, Conn. - Due to the change in our football schedule, and East Carolina now playing the Huskies on Sunday, September 24th in East Hartford, the UCon baseball team is changing its annual UConn Baseball Barbecue and Alumni game festivities to commence a day earlier on Saturday, September 23rd

The festivities will begin with a barbecue at J.O. Christian Field at noon.  All current Dugout Club members are welcome to attend (having paid membership dues for 2017-’18 of $100 or more), as well as all returning UConn Baseball alumni.  A $20 fee will allow for an all-you-can-eat barbecue buffet lunch.  We will follow the luncheon with an award presentation for the 2017 team and our annual alumni game.  First pitch for the game is scheduled for 2:30 pm.

Noon:  Baseball barbecue luncheon under tent on third base side of J.O. Christian Field
