The event's key note speaker will be Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne. The former Husker head football coach led NU to three national championships in his 25-year tenure while compiling 255 wins. He was named the school's athletic director in October of 2007 and has overseen Nebraska's ongoing facility upgrade, which includes the $4.75 million Haymarket Park Indoor Practice Facility.
The cost of the banquet is $50 per person or $450 for a table of 10. All proceeds from the event will go to the Husker Home Run Club, and its support of the Nebraska baseball program. Invitations were sent to Home Run Club members and season ticket holders earlier this month. A limited number of seats are still available for this annual event, although reservations are due Monday, Jan. 24.
