Baseball Gets Championship Rings Saturday

Oct. 25, 2012

The Florida Atlantic University baseball players, coaches and support staff will receive their rings for winning the Sun Belt Conference regular-season title last spring on Saturday. The event will coincide with the program's Alumni Game as part of Homecoming festivities. The ring ceremony is scheduled to start at noon with the game to follow.

The baseball team will also be recognized at the football game against Troy for winning its second conference title in the past three seasons. The football game starts at 5 p.m.

"It was a really good year for Owl baseball," said John McCormack, FAU's head baseball coach. "We won the championship on the field. We also had guys drafted and former players make their MLB debut. When one player makes it to the big leagues we all make make it."

Several players were on the team that won the conference championship in 2010. It is nice to see the team celebrate last year's championship team with the alumni present and players who enjoyed success when they played in Boca Raton.

FAU is in the middle of fall workouts, going through 10 intra-squad scrimmages and a fall exhibition game against Team British Columbia yesterday. The team tasted success last season and with newcomers on the squad it is working hard to winning another conference title. The 2013 spring schedule can be found here.

I encourage you to come out to the FAU Baseball Stadium, 777 Glades Road on the Boca Raton campus and witness the ring ceremony and a baseball game.
