Homecoming reunion to celebrate Crusader Baseball

November 1, 2016

During Homecoming & Family Weekend 2016, Northwest Nazarene University will be hosting a Crusader Baseball reunion on Friday, Nov. 11 and Saturday, Nov. 12.

“The pioneer players should be congratulated. Their perseverance prepared the way, and over the years the teams improved until today NNU is a conference powerhouse,” commented Lilburn Wesche (’51). This reunion will celebrate the growth of the baseball program over the decades and those who made it possible. Alumni of all ages will have the chance to connect during two days of events.

On Friday prior to the men’s basketball game, a reception for all baseball alumni will be held in the upstairs lobby of the Johnson Sports Center at 6 p.m. followed by recognition of baseball alumni and the 2016 GNAC Championship team during half-time of the game.

An alumni baseball game will be played at 1 p.m. on Saturday, followed by a barbecue for baseball alumni, family and friends. Batting practice begins at 11 a.m. Please RSVP at nnu.edu/homecoming.
