The 2012 edition of SLU Lions baseball will be introduced to the public on Friday February 3rd at the annual spring banquet to be held at Twelve Oaks on the Southeastern campus. Doors open at 6pm. Individual tickets for the banquet are $25 and will allow fans an opportunity to meet and dine with the team.
Head coach Jay Artigues will present the first ever Lion For Life award at the banquet this year. The award will be given to the Lion baseball alumnus the coaching staff feels best represents the program through community involvement.
Wrapping up the weekend on Saturday February 4th will be the annual Lion Alumni Game, featuring former Lion greats playing the 2012 Lions. Admission to the game is free, as first pitch is set for 1pm at The Pat. Free hot dogs will also be available. "We'll have batting practice on the field for those that don't feel up to playing in the game, but want to come out, reminisce, and take some ground balls or BP," Artigues said.
For banquet tickets or baseball alumni wishing to participate contact the baseball office at (985)549-3566.
