Ball State's baseball team held a successful Meet the Team Night to start the 2013 season. 

The day started with a sold out baseball clinic where the student-athletes worked with the youths attending the camp.  All the proceeds went back into the baseball budget to offset the cost of running a championship program.  The autograph portion of the night featured free posters, snacks and the opportunity for the kids to throw the baseball and see their velocity.

The main event of the evening featured the introduction of the 2013 team, an excellent dinner, and an outstanding auction. 

A highlight of the night was listening to the team captains share from their heart the love they have for Ball State and their teammates.  Dinner was followed by a 50/50 raffle and live auction. 

Al Heuss, who pitched on the 1952 Ball State baseball team and then served 30 years in the Air Force retiring as a Colonel, told a remarkable story of his time of service. 

"I want our players to understand and appreciate the deep love our alums have for Ball State," Ball State head coach Rich Maloney says.  "If you have a story you would like to share of your experience with Ball State baseball or how it has helped shape you into the success you are having now please send to me and I will share with our team."
