The defending champion UCLA baseball team has announced that it will host the 2014 Alumni Game on Saturday, January 25 at Jackie Robinson Stadium. The day's events will feature two games - one "Old-Timers" game beginning at 10:30 a.m. and the "Young-Timers" game at 12 p.m.
Former players who would like to play in either of this year's Alumni Games should contact UCLA Director of Operations Seth Moir (via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 310-794-8210) by Wednesday, January 8. Alumni should send their name, baseball jersey number and t-shirt size to Moir when they RSVP.
As has been in previous years, this year's Alumni Game will be free of charge to the public.
The 2014 UCLA baseball team will take on the "Young-Timers" Alumni Team in an exhibition contest beginning at 12 p.m. Baseball alumni from 1980 through 2013 are encouraged to compete for the "Young-Timers" Alumni Team. The "Old-Timers" Game will take place prior to the "Young-Timer's Game" at 10:30 a.m. Alumni who played from the 1930's through 1979 are encourage to take part in the "Old-Timer's" Game.
The day's events will begin with batting practice at 9:30 a.m., followed by the two Alumni Games. Following both games, food and refreshments will be available to former players, former coaches and their families in the Gifford Hitting facility.
ABOUT THE REGISTRATION PROCESS - Admission is free to the Alumni Game. The UCLA baseball program does not need a list of alumni family members attending. Stadium gates will open by 9:00 a.m. and participants should report to the third-base bullpen for check-in. Participants will have the opportunity to take batting practice at 9:30 a.m. in order of their arrival.
