On Friday Sept. 25 Michigan State’s baseball team will host its annual alumni golf outing at Forest Akers West.
The festivities will get underway with a 9 a.m. shotgun start and former players from just about every decade, even dating back to the 50’s, will be out on the links.
It’s the 13th outing under current head coach Jake Boss’ watch and today he shared how important this event is to the Spartans’ baseball program with WLNS sports director Audrey Dahlgren.

The fall baseball season is also underway for MSU and the Spartans are practicing six days a week until the end of October. Four of those days consist of intersquad scrimmages.
The Spartans season in the spring was cut short due to COVID-19. MSU played 15 games before the season was canceled.
Boss is hoping his players will use this time to hone in on certain skills and former Grand Ledge pitcher Wyatt Rush has done just that by adding a new pitch to his repertoire.
“The last couple of intersquad games it’s been my cutter,” said Rush. “I kind of picked it up this summer and so far it’s a pitch that I’ve been able to throw for strikes and miss a lot of barrels with so I’ve been confident in any count with that pitch.”
