  • Many former players and supporters of the Crowder College baseball program will converge this weekend as the Crowder College Baseball Alumni Association is hosting a weekend full of fundraisers and dedication to its history.
    The festivities kick-off on Friday with the alumni baseball game at 7 p.m. Former standouts such as Marty Brown and Neosho native Scott Berry are expected to attend, along with many other well-known Roughriders of the past.
    Events will continue on Saturday as the Alumni Association hosts a four-man golf scramble at the Neosho Golf Course slated for 11 a.m. The tournament currently has 18 teams signed up, with enough spots left to fill two more teams. Cost for the golf tournament is $50 per person and includes a round of golf and a cart.
    That evening the Roughriders will hold their annual Hall of Fame banquet at the Flower Box Theatre, formerly the Flower Box Lanes bowling alley, where former Roughriders coach Chip Durham will join former players Loren Storey, Pat Miller and Josh Fritsche as the newest Hall of Fame inductees.
    This will mark the 30th year of the Alumni Association, which was founded by legendary former Crowder head coach Gary Roark. Cost to attend the banquet is $15 per person, or $20 for couples. Those who donate an auction item will eat for free. Bob Lasswell is the evening’s auctioneer, and catering for the event is being conducted by Les Rainwater.
    For more information on the events, please contact Keith Reardon at 417-619-7417.
