Alumni Baseball Game a Success

MACON, Ga.- First Presbyterian Day School head softball and baseball coach Jim Turner welcomed back former FPD baseball players for the annual Alumni Baseball Game on Saturday, October 6, 2012. The event coincided with FPD’s Homecoming Weekend for 2012.

More than 20 players were able to catch up on old times and fellowship with each other while competing in a friendly game that was and still is close to their hearts.

“What a great time it was to renew the friendships formed in baseball over the past thirty-some-odd years at the Alumni Baseball Game this past weekend,” Turner said. “It always means a lot to see guys you knew when they were 18 and now seeing them in another venue as successful adults!”

All players in attendance participated in a homerun derby and baseball game at Ben Harden Memorial Field on the campus of FPD.
