Badger Baseball Scrimmage for Homecoming Weekend

Badger+Baseball+Scrimmage+for+Homecoming+Weekend

Spring Hill College alumni had the opportunity to relive and make new memories during the baseball scrimmage series on homecoming weekend.

The purple and white baseball scrimmage separated the 53-person baseball roster into two teams.

The teams played each other in a series of three games on Oct. 21 and 22. Badgers fans, including SHC baseball alumni and former baseball head coach, Frank Sims, lined the edge of the field to cheer on the baseball team. After two days of competition, the purple team came out victorious going two for three against the white team.

According to alumni and students, the Historic Stan Galle baseball field is one of the many places on campus that holds memories both on and off the field. Particularly, alumni Lawrence P. Howen, class of 1983, spent most of his days during baseball season supporting the Badgers.

“The only time I did not watch a baseball game was when I was stuck up there in class. If you weren’t out there playing, you were watching,” Howen said.

After Howen reunited with his friends and reminisced about their time on the Hill, he emphasized, “I was put here, right here in 1979 by God so I could meet the people I met, and those people are all here right now. I absolutely love them; they became lifelong friends.”

Alex Martinez, named MVP of the purple and white series, described the emotions he felt during the game as fans watched. “It was definitely electric, it was really cool to have all of them and see all of them up there. It was a really good environment and really cool to be a part of,” Martinez said.

Martinez said that baseball continues to contribute to the community through family. “It’s a really small school, so everyone knows each other. And once we are all out there on the field it attracts a lot of fans, alumni and students. Once we get that support we play and show what we are about. It is a really good homie vibe,” Martinez said.
