Pirates to host Alumni Game on Dec. 22

COSTA MESA -- The Orange Coast College baseball team will host its first-ever alumni vs. alumni baseball game, set for Friday, Dec. 22 at 12 p.m. on the newly-turfed Wendell Pickens Field.

Construction is underway for the new field surface, but according to those monitoring the project, the field should be completed by Thanksgiving.

According to head coach John Altobelli, batting practice will start at 10 a.m. with a noon start to the game, followed by a postgame get-together at a site to be determined later.

Cost per player is $25, which includes food throughout the day.

The Pirates are looking for any/all former OCC baseball players to attend, as well as former coaches. Former head coach Mike Mayne will be attending the event and all family and friends are welcomed to attend.

Coast reminds all who attend this simple request for the new field ... no sunflower seeds, tobacco, food or drinks allowed.

For more information on the event, contact Altobelli via email jaltobelli@occ.cccd.edu or by phone at 432-5892.
