Alumni Weekend Festivities Cancelled Due to Rain

Jan. 27, 2007

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - After a fun-filled night of both remembrance and outlook on Friday at the Alumni Dinner, Mother Nature literally rained down on the parade that was scheduled for Saturday. The day was supposed to begin at 10 a.m. with the annual "Old-Timer's Game," followed by the Home Run Derby at around 11:30 and finally the Alumni Game at 1 p.m.

Although rain spoiled the games for this weekend, all is not lost for honoring alumni in 2007. The team had already planned to start having an "Alumni Weekend" in October, and it seems that the new tradition will be instituted this year. Stay tuned to to follow this season's squad and for more information on the upcoming alumni events.

The 2007 Gauchos, led by senior Robbie Blauer and hurlers Steve Morlock and Justin Segal will begin their new season on Friday, Feb. 9 on the road against San Jose State at 2 pm.
