April 2: Montie Weaver Day and Baseball Alumni Day

 
 

Baseball card.jpgEveryone is invited to be on campus as we unveil a plaque to remember the great contributions of our alumnus, Montie Weaver. Mr. Weaver gradated in 1927 and went on to play professional baseball for the Washington Senators. His place in history will be remembered with a plaque on the Emory & Henry campus near the baseball field. Former E&H baseball players are especially invited back for this gathering which will also be Baseball Alumni Day. The E&H Baseball team will play a double-header against Virginia Wesleyan that begins at Noon. Come early to hear Dr. Charles Sydnor tell the story of Montie Weaver, and gather at 11:30 am at the baseball field for the unveiling of the plaque.

Here is the full schedule:

10:30 am           Remarks by former E&H President, Dr. Charles Sydnor, in Van Dyke

11:20 am           Arrive at the baseball field

11:30-11:45 am  Special presentation to unveil plaque, at the Baseball Field

11:55 am           Member of the Weaver family throws out the first pitch

Noon                 E&H Men’s Baseball double-header with Va. Wesleyan (Bring a chair!)                                                                    

We’ll have free hot dogs and drinks at the game from Noon-2 pm!

(Also, E&H Women’s Softball plays a double-header with Eastern Mennonite that begins at 1 pm)

In the event that the game is rained out, we will still have the presentation by Dr. Sydnor and the unveiling of the plaque.

 

 

Registration is not required for this event, but it will certainly help us plan. Thanks!
