2011 Annual Halloween Game/ Joe Nathan comes back to SBU
« on: October 28, 2011, 01:01:49 pm »
Saturday October 29th prior to the Coastal Carolina matchup at 4pm, All-Star baseball closer Joe Nathan will come back to Stony Brook to officially open our $ 1.3 million field which was partly funded by his $500,000 donations.

The Halloween matchup will be played from 10:00AM-11:30AM and his ribbon cutting ceremony will occur at 12:15pm according to Newsday. This weekend will be jampacked with Seawolves sports. Go Seawolves

Excerpt from Newsday: 

"Nathan will make an appearance at a ribbon-cutting for the field at 12:15 p.m., Fiore said. The event is free and open to the public.

“He was a great player, a great student, and really embodies everything that we’re trying to produce,” Fiore said. “Someone that’s a scholar-athlete.”

The new field is on the campus at the same location as Stony Brook’s old University Field, but is an entirely new facility, said university spokesman Thomas Chen.

The field has a 1,000-seat capacity, artificial turf, and 16-foot fences in centerfield, Chen said. The rest of the fence is 8 feet tall, and the park is 390 feet to centerfield, 330 feet down the lines and 360 feet in the gaps, he said."

One great pitcher. So awesome that he went to SBU. I catched the late innings of last nights game on TV. It felt great to see him once again in ASG
