Baseball to Host Homecoming Festivities

INDIANAPOLIS – Butler alumni, baseball fans, family, and friends are invited to Bulldog Park this weekend as the baseball program will host a string of events during homecoming weekend.

The day will begin with a baseball alumni / parent picnic at 11 a.m. The picnic will be held at Bulldog Park and will feature sandwiches from Chick-Fil-A. All families are asked to "pitch in" with a salad or dessert, yet drinks will be provided.

Alumni, parents and children are invited to play catch on the infield, run the bases, or tour the press box and the indoor hitting facility to see the many new improvements to the ballpark.

BIG EAST t-shirts will be for sale on Saturday and there will also be a free raffle for one lucky fan to throw out the first pitch at a 2014 home game.

After the completion of the football game vs. Campbell which starts at 1 p.m., there will be a baseball team picture and a live varsity scrimmage at approximately 3:30 p.m.
