Fri, 11 Apr 2014 00:34:40 EDT

Reunion Weekend - Friday & Saturday - November 6 & 7, 2009 - Friday, September 18, 2009

GOLF-DINNER / PROGRAM LEGENDS-----BASEBALL GAME

Make your plans now to attend the Auburn Baseball Lettermen and Associates Club annual get together.  The last three have been super fellowship and fun. This year the Club salutes the 1963 SEC Championship Team along with the Auburn All-Americans of the 1960's decade.

The golf on Friday will be a shotgun start and will have similar playing rules to last year. Coach Pawlowski and members of his staff will participate in some fashion along with the 2010 senior / junior baseball players by hitting some tee shots and putt on designated holes. This will be a super time to meet the coaches individually including David Mines, Associate AD and new coach Link Jarrett, a Florida State baseball alumnus, who came to Auburn from a successful program at East Carolina. Also, it will be good time to tell the seniors / juniors how much we support them and their efforts in Auburn baseball program.

Saturday morning brings the Reunion Baseball Game. Details are enumerated on the attached Reunion game registration form. We have had some really good games in the past with young and old former players participating and we see no reason to expect anything less this year. Call your teammates and prod them to plan to attend and join in the fun. Commissioner Buz Walsh promises an even more competitive and better game this year with more participants including the older guys playing the early innings and the young studs playing the late innings. Since we are having our activities later this year, we anticipate more of our Major and Minor League players being available to attend all of our functions this year.

Since the year’s events are taking place on a football weekend, we have not attempted to make provisions for rooms to be set aside for participants needing accommodations. Also, you may want to allow extra time for travel to Auburn and getting around campus for the Club’s functions. I have included lodging lists for your consideration. The Athletic Department will attempt to provide assigned parking and transportation to Plainsman Park for the Reunion Game participants on Saturday. Particulars will be forthcoming at a time closer to that week end and you will be notified.
