Southern AD Roman Banks joins former SU Baseball alum Calvin Beal and SU Baseball in celebrating Baseball Alumni Weekend at the DONALD C Wade House. Our special guest for the evening are MacVea Griffin and Henry Triplett, two members of the 1959 NAIA National Championship team who were honored during today’s game in honor of the 60th anniversary of their historic win. The 1959 team, led by future MLB Hall of Famer Lou Brock, defeated Omaha 10-2 in the title game on June 6, 1959. Today, Griffin and Triplett tossed out the first pitch for Game 2 of the Grambling series and watch SU rally to win 15-13 and take the series.
