HLGU Alumni Baseball Game October 8

Hello Hannibal-LaGrange Baseball Alum!

The Hannibal-LaGrange College baseball team will be holding its annual alumni game on October 8, 2011 at Nichols Field on the HLGU campus. The field will be open for batting practice at 9:00 AM and the game will start at 10:00. The day will consist of batting practice, and a nine inning game. We will provide your lunch following the game and encourage you to stick around and catch up with OLD friends.

Your participation is what will make this day a success. Our hope is to have enough alumni play so they can be divided into two teams of 10-12 players apiece. If we do not have a sufficient number of alumni, current players will fill in. Our current list of alumni is limited and sometimes it is hard to locate individuals who have moved, so please help us by spreading the word!

We are excited about the upcoming 2011 Trojan Baseball season. We hope that you can come share this excitement with us as well as revisiting your college home. We will ask that each participant make a minimum donation of $25 which will cover lunch and an alumni game T-shirt while helping support your program. If you are planning on attending please send me an email: Be sure to indicate your t-shirt size so we can have them ready on that day. Registration money may be paid the day of the game.

We look forward to seeing you there!

2010 Trojan World Series Game 3 Recap

BB Drops D to Push Blues Past Reds in Game 3
- Hannibal, MO

An unlikely hero emerged Tuesday afternoon in the tenth inning of an edge of your seat thriller that took two days to complete. Twenty-four hours earlier, Brandon Bennett left Nichols Field feeling like a goat after getting doubled off second on a one out, bases loaded line drive to the outfield. The Ao Kamio blast looked like a game winner off the bat until a cat like Ian Hatton dove to corral it and doubled off Bennett at second, ending the game for the day. Fast forward a day and two innings later...Bennett stepped to the plate with two men on and one out and drove a first pitch fastball to the base of the wall in the right center gap plating the tying and winning run. The former goat was mobbed at the plate after striding into third with a stand-up triple.

The Blues now lead the best of five series 2-1, taking the Reds to the brink of elimination. Part of the Blues success has been Josh Pierce. The lead-off man has reached base safely seven out of eight times in the series. The Blues will need him to stay hot if they are to take a highly contested game 4.
