"Saturday will be a full day with the golf tournament and the alumni dinner," said MSU baseball administrative assistant Greg Drye. "We're giving the alumni game a different twist this year, with the returning alumni playing alongside our current players. It's an opportunity for our current players to get to know some of the past players who have been a part of our strong baseball tradition at Mississippi State."
Among the former Diamond Dogs expected to return to Starkville for baseball alumni weekend festivities are former Major Leaguers Eric DuBose and Jack Lazorko and Major League manager Nat Showalter.
"We've heard from former players from all over the country, some that will be returning and others who wish they were," said Drye. "We want them all to have a great weekend when they come home to Mississippi State."
