The Ontario Blue Jays are a traveling team consisting of players 16-18 years old who play top college competition annually. The Blue Jays played schools such as Arkansas, Kansas, Wichita State, Auburn and Florida in the past.
The game with the Blue Jays will not count towards Duquesne's record or number of games allowed in 2009. The NCAA permits teams to play one game per year against international competition.
On Sept. 28, Alumni Day will open at noon with the "not-so-recent" alumni playing a game against each other. At least 14 people will need to sign up in advance for this game to take place. At 2:30, the more recent alumni will take on the 2008-09 Dukes.
All alumni participants will receive a complimentary t-shirt as well as food and beverage. Contact the baseball office at 412-396-5245 or by e-mail at email@example.com if you would like to participate. All baseball alumni are encouraged to attend even if you don't wish to play.
