Hokies announce 125 years of baseball celebration weekend

Alumni Weekend link

BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech baseball's 2018 season will begin this weekend at the 19th Annual Brittain Resorts Baseball at the Beach tournament in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This tournament opens the 125th season in the program's history, prompting the Hokies to commemorate this great milestone with a celebration weekend later in April.

The Tech baseball program started in 1892, with its inaugural campaign finishing with a 2-0 record. More than a dozen decades later, the Hokies now compete in the nation’s top conference, has sent countless players to Major League Baseball and, this season, will open a new baseball complex at English Field at Union Park.

Over the years, the coaches, staff, student-athletes and Hokie Nation have been an integral part of telling the Tech baseball story. Tech is hoping our great alumni will join us in Blacksburg to celebrate their legacy as Hokies and the 125th anniversary of Tech baseball.

The celebration of 125 years of Tech baseball will run throughout the weekend of April 27-29, 2018 with on-field recognition to take place prior to Game 2 versus Duke on Saturday, April, 28th - a 3 p.m. first pitch. For more information and to register, please visit: http://vthoki.es/BB-125Y. We ask that all alumni RSVP via this link by April 1, 2018 and we hope to see you in there.

If anyone has any questions or would like more information, please contact Ryan Connolly via email at rconnolly@vt.edu.
