Gator Alumni Night @ the Ballpark

UHD Alumni came together for a special night at the ballpark, hosted by the UHD Alumni Association, to watch the Sugar Land Space Cowboys win against the Albuquerque Isotopes last week.

Gator alums and guests were joined by UHD President Loren J. Blanchard to cheer UHD Head Baseball Coach and former MLB Houston Astros pitcher Scipio Spinks  throw out the first pitch!

Our very own mascot Ed U Gator buddied up with Space Cowboys’ mascot Orion to engage the crowd and take some memorable photos.

Thanks to the Alumni Association for securing a great package for alumni to attend with their guests, including a concession combo and a UHD baseball cap!

We look forward to hosting more alumni events soon to show our UHD Gator Spirit!
