COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech baseball team is joining this year's Homecoming festivities, hosting its annual alumni event on Saturday, Oct. 26 beginning at 10 a.m. CDT at Quillen Field at Bush Stadium at the Averitt Express Baseball Complex.

All former Tech players are invited to come back and meet the players and coaches as well as enjoy some talks with both current head coach Matt Bragga and hall of fame coach David Mays. The team will practice and put on fielding and hitting drills for those in attendance with a lunch to follow at 12:30 p.m.

Alumni will also be invited to take on-field batting practice, infield drills, and partake in a quality at-bat contest.

"We love it when our former players can make it out to these events and get know the future of our program," said head coach Matt Bragga. "We've had many guys make their start here and go on to great success, both on and off the field, and we love being able to share good fellowship with them when they come back to Cookeville."

Following the lunch, everyone is invited and encouraged to attend the homecoming football game against Jacksonville State at 1:30 p.m. at Tucker Stadium.
