Chipola Set to Host Alumni Weekend

Marianna, FL---As of way of helping to kick off the juco baseball season Chipola set once again for it's all-star alumni weekend! It begins with games Friday at 11 and 2. The alums says Chipola head coach Jeff Johnson should start arriving Friday afternoon, with a reception set for them Friday night.

The action, says Johnson really heats up Saturday.

"We'll start our game on Saturday at ten in the morning. Then at one we'll have our home run derby. Jose Bautista, the two time home run champ will be back. And was leading last year before he got hurt so we got a guy who had the chance to win it three years in a row returning. We'll have a lot of our other guys in here as well. Don't have as many big league guys this time because a lot of them had to report early. But we got a lot of challengers who think they can hang in there. Jeff Mathis will be in here, who's won it before also, as well."

Bautista, Mathis and the others will be set for pictures and autographs after that home run derby.
