The campaign to build the new backstop at Ithaca College's Freeman Field brought out the best in the Bomber family. This spring, players, spectators, students, and families had the chance to enjoy the improvements and have taken tremendous pride in these upgrades.

To celebrate this accomplishment, the baseball program is hosting a ceremony to officially dedicate this new aspect of our beautiful facility -- and the entire campus community is invited.

The dedication will be held at 5:30 p.m., Friday, July 20, at Freeman Field and will be attended by head coach George Valesente '66, M.S. '75, College president Tom Rochon, members of our current team, Bomber baseball alumni, and members of the community.

We hope to see you July 20.
