Festivities set for Baseball this Weekend

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University baseball team will return home this weekend to take on Culver-Stockton College on Saturday, Apr. 6 at 1 p.m. for a doubleheader and will also host the University of St. Mary on Sunday, Apr. 7 for a nine inning game beginning at 2 p.m.

Lot's of festivities are planned for fans at the games, including a promotion for all ages on Saturday.

The Baker athletic department will set up a net outside Sauder Field and will feature a radar gun for participants to see how hard they can throw a baseball.

The contest will start during the 3rd inning of the first game and will conclude in the 3rd inning of the second game. The fan to clock the fastest throw on our radar gun will win a Baker University warm up jersey. Also on Saturday, free icy pops will be handed out to the first 50 fans.

On Sunday, before the 2 p.m. first pitch, Jeremy Isenhower, a world-renowned power-hitting exhibitionist will put on a hitting display at Sauder Field for all to enjoy.

Isenhower was a teammate and roommate of Philadelphia Phillies All-Star Ryan Howard at Missouri State University and was a two-time All-American and Conference Player of the Year.

He was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies and has been a member of the Team USA men's softball team since 2010. He is also part of the Long Haul Bomber Stadium Tour since 2009.

Isenhower also released his own Jeremy Isenhower Freak Signature Series Bat, that is sold in the U.S., Canada and Europe. He will begin the hitting display at approximately 1:20 at Baker's Sauder Field.
