Annual NSU Baseball Auction set for Feb. 5

NATCHITOCHES – After a one-year hiatus, the annual Northwestern State Baseball Auction presented by Maison Louisiane returns Feb. 5.

The annual fund-raising event for the Demon baseball program will take place that Saturday inside the Student Union ballroom on the NSU campus.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for a social hour before the program begins at 7:15 p.m. Dinner will be served starting around 6:30 with the social hour continuing until 7:15.

In accordance with university regulations, guests will be asked to wear a mask when not eating or drinking.

The 2022 Demon baseball team will be introduced to the guests, who will enjoy a catered meal and will have an opportunity to bid on numerous auction items, including travel packages, sports memorabilia and more. Additionally, several former Demon players are expected to be in attendance and participate in a roundtable discussion about their post-NSU playing careers.

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 benefit all areas of the Northwestern State baseball program, including the improvements at Brown-Stroud Field.
