STOCKTON, Calif. - The Pacific baseball team had a fun-filled weekend as they hosted alumni for the annual alumni game on Saturday.

Over 35 alumni were in attendance and ran out onto Klein Family Field to reunite with one another and returned with high hopes of showing the current Tigers a thing or two.

The six-inning game was packed with excitement as the Tigers scored two runs in the first inning, but the Alumni quickly answered with two run of their own and tied the game. That would be all from the Alumni as the 2017-18 Tigers racked up the runs to bring the friendly game to 7-2.

"Saturday was a great day for the Pacific Baseball Family. The staff, players and I had a great time getting to meet and talk with so many alumni about their UOP experience and our shared love for the baseball program," said head coach Ryan Garko. "We are so thankful for all of the men and their families that decided to be a part of this day and our Alumni weekend to continue to grow moving forward."

The Orange and Black will have their first fall scrimmage on Saturday at 10 a.m. as they face off against Folsom Lake Community College at Klein Family Field.
