Any former Cowley College baseball player from the program’s inception in 1970 through this past season’s team is invited to attend the Tiger Magic Baseball Alumni Weekend on Sept. 9-10 in Arkansas City.

Cowley head coach Dave Burroughs, along with assistant coaches Darren Burroughs and Brock Buckingham, long have discussed having a weekend full of events for baseball alumni.

“We are excited about this happening, and look forward to seeing the former players and their families come back,” Dave Burroughs said. “This is not just for my former players — this is for anybody that played for me, Ben Cleveland or Rick Holman. We want all former players to know they are welcome.”

A social will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1254, 3212 N. Summit St., in Arkansas City. A golf outing will take place at 8 a.m. Sept. 10 at Great Life Golf & Fitness, 8731 East U.S. 166, with a home run derby to follow later in the afternoon at Tiger Ball Park, 1500 S. Summit St.

For more information or to reserve a spot at the Tiger Magic Baseball Alumni Weekend, call (417) 850-2032.
