Kent State University’s Golden Flashes baseball team will be honored at a Season of Champions celebration event on Thursday, June 28, at the Kent Student Center Ballroom. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with a presentation beginning at 7 p.m.
The celebration event is free and open to all, including Kent State faculty and staff members and their families, students, alumni, community members and the general public. All attendees will receive a free T-shirt and other giveaways, and will have the opportunity for a meet-and-greet and signing with members of the baseball team before and after the event. Ballpark-style refreshments will be served at the event, which also will feature video highlights from the championship season.
The 2012 Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year Scott Stricklin, who led the team, will address attendees at the celebration event.
The Kent State baseball team made its 12th NCAA tournament appearance this year and advanced to the Super Regional for the first time this season. The team also played in the College World Series for the first time in program history, which dates back to 1915. The Golden Flashes edged out top seed Florida in its second game at the College World Series.
Wear your blue and gold and join the Kent State community as it celebrates the Golden Flashes on a successful championship season.
