CSU Baseball out for support

In an effort to raise money for their top-ranked club baseball

team’s trip to defend its national title, the members of CSU

Baseball are hosting a fund-raising golf tournament May 21 at Mad

Russian Golf Course.

Planned in conjunction with Party On Event Planning, the

tournament will feature 18 holes of golf, a home run contest and

raffle prizes. All proceeds will go to benefit the Rams in their

quest to win the National Collegiate World Series for the second

year in a row in Bradleton, Fla.

“It’s a good opportunity to help a club in need,” said CSU

Baseball Vice President Nathan Klein in a press release. “We’re

making our fourth consecutive run at Nationals and need all the

The course is located at 2100 Country Club Pkwy., Milliken,

Colo. Businesses interested in sponsoring the event or those

wanting to participate in the event can contact CSU Baseball head

coach Frank Gonzalez at 217-3771.
