NSU Baseball Sponsorships RiccaKunert.jpg

Nothing whets a baseball appetite quite like dingers and dinner.

Six days before the 2019 college baseball season begins, the Northwestern State baseball team will offer both to its alumni, fans and supporters.

The annual Demon Baseball Auction, presented by Maison Louisiane, is set for 6:30 pm. Saturday, Feb. 9, inside the NSU Student Union Ballroom. Earlier that day, all Demon baseball alumni will have the chance to take part in a Home Run Derby at Brown-Stroud Field.

“We have had a tremendous turnout the past two years with our current setup,” third-year head coach Bobby Barbier said. “We look forward to having another great night where our players and staff can meet with and thank our supporters and their families.

“The Home Run Derby will be an exciting way to start the day with us being able to bring back a lot of guys who helped lay the foundation for this program.”

The 2019 NSU team will be in attendance to mix and mingle with fans and supporters, who will enjoy a catered meal and will have an opportunity to bit on numerous auction items, including travel packages, sports memorabilia and more.

All Demon baseball alumni will be recognized at the event as well.

Corporate sponsorships are available for $500 and include a reserved 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 team and premium event seating.

Individual seats are available for $25. Proceeds from the event will benefit all areas of the Northwestern State baseball program, which broke ground earlier this month on a refurbished press box and the addition of a pair of suites at Brown-Stroud Field.
