The Alumni game returned to the Light after Missing out last year due to COVID. Many of our favorites were on hand to welcome back the crowd and treat the fans to an evening of baseball and welcome the beginning of a new season of Cane baseball. This is usually a tuneup session where the future plays the oldies in a confidence builder. Instead, not only did they boost their level to an uptime high but put the hurt and showed no respect to their senior heroes. Behind the pitching of Carson Palmquist and company, they held the Alum to just a single hit, striking out 12 while only giving up 2 walks. Carson can credit 9 of those strikeouts pitching 5 very strong innings. Gave up the sole single off the bat of Romy Gonzalez leading off the 4th inning. While our pitching staff was putting on a clinic so did the bats make a strong statement. A 13 run barrage behind 14 hits where everyone in the starting lineup contributed with at least one hit. Three players had multiple hits and the only thing missing from the outflow of hits was the bomb. Gaby Gutierrez almost made it with a GRAND SALAMI, but only came away with a very deep SF to left-center. Gino gave everyone a chance to bat switching out in the 5th inning. It was an evening for all to remember, particularly our freshman playing for the first time in front of the Cane fateful cheering them on. Towson beware, after tonight this is a team ready to take on all takers. A 13-0 clobber why shouldn’t they feel they are the baddest team around.
