COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Former Golden Eagle baseball, softball, soccer and football players are being invited back to campus in the next couple of months as Tennessee Tech hosts alumni activities for each of those sports.

The softball team goes first, hosting its annual "Legends Weekend" on Saturday, April 13, when coach Bonnie Bynum's team hosts OVC newcomer Belmont in a weekend series. The doubleheader begins at 1 p.m. Former softball players are invited to attend and participate during an on-field recognition.

On Saturday, May 18, the baseball team hosts its "Legends Weekend" on the final day of the regular season. Like softball, the alumni event takes place when coach Matt Bragga's squad faces Belmont, with first pitch scheduled for 2 p.m. Interested players can contact Roy McGinty (615-330-2057) in Development.

Former Tennessee Tech football players are invited to gather on Saturday, July 13, for the team's annual Alumni Golf Classic at the Cookeville Golf Club. Prior to the golf outing, the public is invited to join the festivities with a Friday night BBQ dinner.
