CHICKASHA – Softball and baseball alumni will have the opportunity to gather for a weekend reunion in August.

“I think it’s a great thing. It keeps them involved in our programs and it provides tradition,” Softball Coach Jenn White-Cody said. “And I think people love to come back … It’s a way they can reconnect with the guys and gals they played ball with.”

Baseball and softball alumni will meet for dinner and drinks beginning at 5 p.m. August 28, and will follow with an alumni baseball or softball game, beginning at 1 p.m. the following day at Bill Smith Ballpark. Registration for both is $30. Any additional guests — including spouses — are $15 each.

“It’s important for me that the alumni still come around and stay involved,” Baseball Coach Mike Ross said. “I don’t ever want to lose touch with those guys, (like those) who started the program, even on back to the 70s.”

They had a mini-reunion last year, and Ross said attendees loved the gathering.

“It’s important to me because I want our alumni to always be a part of the program,” he said. “It’s a family and always will be.”
