Titan Alumni Game Set for Saturday

FULLERTON, Calif. – Titans from the past will make a return to their old stomping ground this Saturday as four-time national champion Cal State Fullerton hosts the Titan Alumni game at 1 p.m. at Goodwin Field.

 

The Alumni take on the current roster of Titans that enter 2014 as the No. 1 preseason pick as evaluated by Collegiate Baseball. The Titans will open the season on Friday, Feb. 14 vs. Washington State at Goodwin Field.

 

In recent years, 60-75 former players have made the trek back to Goodwin Field for the event, with many of them still populating the major and minor league ranks.

 

This season, the list of former Titans expected to return includes 2013 Major League Baseball first round draft pick Michael Lorenzen, 2013 Big West Conference Player of the Year Richy Pedroza, 2013 conference co-Field Player of the Year and Senior Class Award winner Carlos Lopez, former Atlanta Braves outfielder Reed Johnson, current San Francisco Giants prospect Gary Brown, two-time BWC honoree Blake Davis, 2011 MLB sixth round draft pick Jake Floethe, 2006 Collegiate Baseball National co-Player of the Year Wes Roemer, former New York Mets infielder Justin Turner and Eddie Delzer, the winning pitcher of the 1984 Championship game who has started the last 16 alumni games.

 

Last year, the Titans erased a three-run deficit and scored two runs in the eighth to secure a 5-3 victory over the Alumni. The Titans have won the game four straight years with the Alumni's last victory coming in 2007. The game was cancelled due to inclement weather in 2008 and 2009.

 

The game is free of charge for all fans wishing to attend. The Titans will take the field at 10:15 a.m. for batting practice followed by the Alumni squad at 11:10 a.m. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.

 

Season ticket holders can pick up their packages at the Marketing Table located in the ballpark from 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. All season tickets which are not picked up will be mailed out on Jan. 27.
