PAINESVILLE, OHIO – The Lake Erie College baseball team saw over a dozen former member come back to campus for the first ever Alumni Game on October 8.
"It was great to see a nice turnout from the guys on short notice," said Head Coach Brian McGee. "We realize that we don't have the rich baseball history of some other schools but there have been some really great ballplayers and some really great individuals to come through here this past decade. Our coaching staff feels it's important to connect our current squad with the past graduates and it's something we will look to continue and expand in years to come."
The event brought both recent graduates and players from the early years of the Lake Erie program, which will be entering its 11th season this Spring, back to the field. The current players won the contest but were given a good run by their predecessors.
The game wrapped the Storm Fall League, Lake Erie's annual Fall ball inner squad competition. The Black team won the Championship game, 7-2, over the Green squad in the three-team competition. Freshman Shaun Guydos (North Royalton, Ohio/North Royalton) went three-of-four with four RBIs in the game.
The Black team finished the season 8-4-1 while the Green went 7-7 and Grey went 4-8-1.
