'Celebration of Catamount Baseball' Set for Jan. 18

The 2014 "Celebration of Catamount Baseball Fundraiser Banquet" will be held on Saturday, Jan. 18 in the Grand Ballroom of the on-campus A.K. Hinds University Center.

Headlining the 2014 Catamount baseball banquet is keynote speaker, former WCU relief pitcher - and current Kansas City Royals closer - Greg Holland. Last season, Holland became the first former Catamount baseball player to ever be named a Major League Baseball All-Star.

"We are honored to have former Catamount great and current MLB All Star, Greg Holland, back on campus for our baseball banquet," said  WCU head coach Bobby Moranda, who is entering his seventh season at WCU. "His story of tremendous perseverance and achievement are unprecedented. To go from a WCU walk-on to a Major League All Star is an inspiration to all."

RSVP's are requested by Monday, January 13. All funds raised through this event will directly support the operation of the WCU baseball program.
