To kickoff the 2019 baseball season, Seminole State College will host its annual Trojan Baseball Alumni Banquet February 2 at 6:30 p.m. at the Enoch Kelly Haney Center.

Carlos James, former Trojan and head baseball coach at Arkansas Pine Bluff University, will serve as the guest speaker at the event. James played outfield for SSC in the 1991 and 1992 seasons, reaching the NJCAA College World Series in both seasons and then went on to play baseball for the University of Arkansas. From 2005 to 2008, James worked for the Seattle Mariners as an Associate Scout. He took the head baseball coach position at Arkansas Pine Bluff University in 2010. He has led the team to numerous western division titles and has had four players go on to sign Major League Baseball contracts.

Three former SSC baseball teams will receive special recognition at the banquet: the 1989, 1999 and 2009 rosters. Members of the 2019 Trojan baseball team will be introduced by SSC Head Coach Mack Chambers.

“We are hoping to have many of our former players and our supporters become actively involved in the Seminole baseball program,” Coach Chambers said. “Attending this banquet will be a great show of support for a program that has played an important part in all of our lives.”

Tickets are $25 per person or you may purchase an event table sponsorship for $200, which includes eight tickets. Tickets may be purchased online at sscathletics.com. For questions about the event, contact the SSC Athletics Office at 405-382-9541.
