Students and alumni came out strong for Volcanoes game

First-year students took in a Volcanoes baseball game on Saturday as part of Opening Days student orientation.

The event drew more than 800 members of the Willamette community — students, alumni and their families — to the ballpark for an evening of fun with new friends and an opportunity to see Blitz the Bearcat throw out the first pitch.

Photo ops and autographs with our bearcat buddy were in great demand by fans. Bearcat spirit soared as the sea of cardinal and gold in the stands rang with the Bearcat Rumble.
