UCLA Baseball to Host Alumni Game on Feb. 2

Jan. 9, 2008

LOS ANGELES - With the 2008 season fast approaching, UCLA's annual Alumni Baseball Game is less than one month away. Former Bruin ballplayers will have the opportunity to be the first to play on the newly-renovated field surface at Jackie Robinson Stadium on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Thanks to a major gift, the UCLA baseball team will play on a brand new, major-league caliber playing surface this season. With new drainage, irrigation, infield dirt and natural grass, Jackie Robinson Stadium will feature one of the premier playing fields in the nation.

The 2008 Alumni Baseball Game is open to the public and free of charge. The Bruin baseball program encourages former players, coaches and managers to return to Jackie Robinson Stadium for an enjoyable day of baseball. However, due to new NCAA rules pertaining to the start of the season, the Alumni will not scrimmage the current Bruins as in years past. Instead, the day's events will feature two exhibition games - one featuring Alumni playing Alumni followed by the 2008 Bruins competing in a six-inning intersquad contest.

Last season, over 80 former Bruins returned to Jackie Robinson Stadium for an enjoyable afternoon. The UCLA baseball program looks forward to an even greater turnout of former players and families this year.

HOW TO REGISTER
Registration for the Alumni Game is being handled by assistant coach P.C. Shaw. To RSVP for the 2008 Alumni Game, e-mail P.C. Shaw at pshaw@athletics.ucla.edu (phone: 310-794-8210). Please RSVP by January 19 and confirm that you will be at Jackie Robinson Stadium for what will surely be an enjoyable day.

Please let Coach Shaw know your t-shirt size and jersey number. The UCLA baseball program would love to see as many of its former players back at the ballpark to honor our baseball alumni. Please spread the word to former teammates about this year's Alumni Game.
