Why mess with a good thing?

That is Northwestern State baseball coach Bobby Barbier’s thought process for the annual Demon Baseball Auction presented by Maison Louisiane, which is set for 6 p.m. Feb. 10 in the NSU Student Union Ballroom.

Prior to his first season as head coach, Barbier tweaked the setup of the team’s largest annual fund-raiser and saw it become an unquestioned success.

“We were very excited with how last year’s auction turned out, and we had many positive comments from those who attended the event,” Barbier said. “We are always looking for ways to enhance our student-athletes’ experience here. The success of last year’s event led us to keep the format the same as we look to complete our plans of adding a new locker room and clubhouse for our student-athletes.”

The 2018 Demons will be in attendance, mingling with fans and supporters, who will enjoy a catered meal and will have the ability to bid on numerous auction items from sports memorabilia to vacation getaways and much more.

There also will be special recognition for all Demon baseball alumni.

Corporate sponsorships are available for $500 an include a reserve table with eight seats, a mention of the sponsor in the program insert, a verbal thank you during the event, an exclusive gift from the NSU baseball program and premium event seating.

Individual seats are available for $25. Proceeds from the event will benefit all areas of the Northwestern State baseball program.
