The second annual Spartan Baseball Alumni Series is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 at the NBC Spartan Sports Complex.
There will be a game featuring more recent graduates and also a (much slower moving) game with the older alumni.
“Last year's games included graduates from 1972 to 2017 and turned out to be a tremendous success,” SHS coach Don Dembroski said. “We hope to continue growing the event each year (including adding some kind of evening social gathering), so please share this post with any alumni that you know.”
More information will be available soon in the Telegram and on the Spartan baseball Facebook page.
