Baseball rounds out annual alumni weekend
Several fans put football on hold for a few hours Saturday to watch the annual JU alumni game at John Session Stadium to wrap alumni weekend.
The alumni held the current Dolphins to a pair of runs through the first 2.2 innings, but two walks and an error opened the door for three runs, capped on a sophomore Garrett Ruckel, for a 5-0 deficit. The current Dolphins tacked on two more runs in the final three frames for a 7-1 win.
“This was another great alumni weekend,” JU head coach Terry Alexander said. “We are grateful to everyone who came out. I enjoyed catching up with new and old faces from our program’s past. We have some great alumni and I hope to see some of them during the upcoming season.”
