KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Friday evening, June 19, is WMU Faculty and Staff Appreciation Night at the Kalamazoo Growlers baseball game. The game will begin at 7:05 p.m. at Homer Stryker Field.


Students and faculty and staff members can purchase adult admission tickets to attend the game that night for $7 each. To help Bronco families attend, WMU President John M. Dunn will cover the cost for children 18 and under. The offer is good for the first 300 child ticket requests from staff and faculty, with up to two child tickets available for each adult ticket purchased.

Tickets may be purchased by calling (269) 492-9966.

The Growlers are part of the Northwoods League and the team roster is made up of talented college athletes, including Bronco pitcher Derek Schneider. The June 19 game will pit the Kalamazoo team against the La Crosse (Wisconsin) Loggers.

In addition to WMU employees, WMU alumni are expected to be out in force to attend a special alumni gathering at the field that evening. An appearance by Buster Bronco and fireworks are also part of the evening's activities.
