Friday evening, a Baseball Alumni Social will be held at 7 p.m. at Degraff's Restaurant and Tavern in Shawnee. Dinner and a soft drink will be provided to those who attend.

On Saturday, November 5, alumni and community members are invited to participant in in a golf tournament at the Jimmie Austin Municipal Golf Course in Seminole.

Mulligans are available for $10 each, with a limit of two per player.

Hole sponsorships, providing recognition for business and individual supporters of the baseball team, are available for $100 each. Half sponsorships are available for $50 each.

SSC Head Baseball Coach Dax Leone said, "This is a great event every year for all former and current Trojan baseball players. Our tradition here is much more than just wins and losses, it's a brotherhood. As a former player at SSC, I understand the amount of hard work it takes to be a Trojan. I welcome all alumni back for this great weekend of events."
