Former Saints Invited to Weekend of Nostalgia
KSCB News - July 19, 2010 12:00 am
It’s time to dust off those old cleats and squeeze into the pinstripes
for the Inaugural Saints Baseball Alumni Weekend. That’s right, SCCC/ATS is
inviting all Seward County Saints Baseball alumni and their families
back to Liberal on Labor Day Weekend (September 3-5) to relive the glory
days at Brent Gould Field. The weekend will consist of a new facilities
tour, a home run derby, a game against the current Saints, a dinner and
social after the game, as well as a golf tournament on Sunday morning.

Under current Head Coach, Galen McSpadden, the Seward County Community
College baseball program has amassed a record of 986-546 over the past
29 years, which has included: 1 NJCAA World Series appearance; 5
regional tournament championships; 13 regular season conference
championships; 18 All-Americans and 144 All-Conference players. The
sustained success of Saints baseball has been a direct result of both
the quality of players that have performed on Brent Gould Field as well
as the quality of men that have continued their lives after Seward
County. Winning has become a tradition for the Saints, and Seward
County Community College would like to invite all of those who have been
a part of it back to Liberal, Kansas (this Labor Day weekend) for the
Inaugural SCCC Baseball Alumni Weekend.
