Barons form summer league for current students and alumni

Season opener set for this Saturday

The Lima Campus Barons baseball team will play in their first-ever summer league game against the Ottawa American Legion at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 6, 2009, at the Ottawa City Park. The Barons summer league baseball team is comprised of current students and alumni of Ohio State Lima and Rhodes State College.

“The summer league gives our students additional experience beyond the regular season and helps to keep them active on our campus,” said Abe Ambroza, coordinator of the Barons summer league. “Plus, it allows students to interact with fellow alumni and community members from other teams.”

The team has 14 games scheduled through mid-July and is still accepting additional team members. Anyone interested in playing on the Barons team should contact Abe Ambroza at ambroza.1@osu.edu.

Saturday’s game is free and open to the public.
