Los Angeles, Calif. - The UCLA baseball team will host its annual Alumni Game on Saturday, Jan. 26, 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 12:15 p.m. UCLA will also be presenting a new 17 X 49 foot state-of-the-art LED video board at the event.
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 email@example.com or by phone at 310-794-8210) by Wednesday, Jan. 16. Alumni should send their name, baseball jersey number and t-shirt size to Moir when they RSVP.
This year's game, as in years past, is free of charge to the public.
The 2013 UCLA baseball team will play the "Young-Timers" Alumni Team in an exhibition contest beginning at 12:15 p.m. Baseball alumni from 1980 through 2012 are encouraged to compete for the "Young-Timers" Alumni Team.
Before the "Young-Timers" game at 12:15 p.m., the Bruins will hold a short ceremony to present a new LED video board at 12 pm. Photo galleries of the new scoreboard will be posted on uclabruins.com in the coming weeks.
