This is the second year for the event and Irons hopes it will continue to grow.

“Hopefully, word of mouth will get out and help let everyone know about it,” he said. “It’s great fellowship and good for the program.”

Irons cited the prestige and history of the program as a reason for holding the event and that all former Trojan baseball team members, coaches family members are invited to attend.

The event will take place on the fifth floor of the Stadium Tower at 6 p.m. just before kickoff of the CHHS football game. Dinner will be served and there is no cost to attend.

“I feel this will be a successful event because of the strong history of the program,” Irons said. “Everyone can come out and enjoy good food and fellowship and then a good football game.”
