The Brainerd Warriors baseball program will conduct its first alumni recognition day before Thursday's 5 p.m. game against Willmar at Adamson Field.
Alumni are asked to arrive between 4:30 and 5 p.m. and register at the front gate. Alumni will be recognized on the field before the entrance.
Former players will be eligible to win entered in a drawing for autographed bats and caps. Each alum will receive a Warrior baseball record book, Warrior pen, bottle of Warrior water, baseball with a Warrior logo and a certificate for a free hot dog and pop. An informal gathering is scheduled at Shep's on 6th following the game.
The family of former Warriors coach Kermit Aase will be presented with a plaque by Dan Anderson and Ray Austin, organizers of the alumni event.
