STARKVILLE, Miss. - Plans are moving forward for the 13th alumni baseball weekend next week at Mississippi State. The biennial event, scheduled October 18-19, is expected to draw more than 50 former baseball players and managers representing teams spanning eight decades of Mississippi State baseball to the MSU campus.

The weekend schedule kicks off Saturday at 1 p.m. with an alumni golf tournament at the MSU Golf Course, followed by a dinner in the Bryan Athletic Administration Building. Capping the weekend will be the 2008 alumni baseball game, with Diamond Dogs of the past teaming with members of the 2009 Mississippi State team in a Maroon/White game at Dudy Noble Field. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. and is open to the public with no charge for admission.

"Saturday will be a full day with the golf tournament and the alumni dinner," said MSU baseball administrative assistant Greg Drye. "We’re giving the alumni game a different twist this year, with the returning alumni playing alongside our current players. It’s an opportunity for our current players to get to know some of the past players who have been a part of our strong baseball tradition at Mississippi State."

Among the former Diamond Dogs expected to return to Starkville for baseball alumni weekend festivities are former Major Leaguers Eric DuBose and Jack Lazorko and Major League manager Nat Showalter.

"We’ve heard from former players from all over the country, some that will be returning and others who wish they were," said Drye. "We want them all to have a great weekend when they come home to Mississippi State."
