Baseball and Softball Teams Announce Alumni Challenge Softball Games

The Catawba Baseball and Softball teams have announced an Alumni Challenge during Family Weekend on September 21, 2013.  Whether you were a former baseball player, softball player or just a college alum you are invited to play in softball games which will be played at Newman Park prior to the football game.  You will also still have plenty of time for tailgating before the game.

Those interested in playing will be divided into teams with men playing at noon and 1 p.m. and the women at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.  Each game will be limited to one hour.  Alumni/players, please arrive 45 minutes to an hour prior to your first game to sign liability waiver & to stretch & loosen up.  Some may need to stretch prior to signing waiver?!?!  All you will need to play is a glove and sneakers, but no spikes or cleats.  The Catawba softball team will be in action earlier in the day, playing at 10 a.m. and noon at Whitley Field. 

Come on out and join the fun and fellowship and get your chance to play at historic Newman Park.  Games will use 70 foot bases and you will be swinging for the BIG FENCE!

Blowing Smoke BBQ will be provided at 5 p.m. for participants in challenge/their families/and players and families of current baseball/softball teams!  Additionally, Boston Butts can be purchased for $30.00.  All proceeds go to helping support our Baseball and Softball Programs-Donations are appreciated!

Contact Head Baseball Coach Jim Gantt ( or 704-637-4281) if you are interested in playing.
