UCLA Starts Baseball Season Today Against Alumni

The UCLA baseball team opens its 1988 season today at Jackie Robinson Stadium when it meets a team of former Bruin stars now playing pro ball. The program begins at 10 a.m. with a home run hitting contest and a game between alumni. The varsity-alumni game will follow.

Among the former Bruins expected to participate in both games are pitchers Tim Leary of the Dodgers, Matt Young of the Oakland A's, Dave Schmidt of Baltimore and Eric Nolte of San Diego, first baseman Pat Dodson of Boston and former Yankee and Atlanta first baseman Chris Chambliss.

The day will conclude with the induction of 10 charter members into the UCLA baseball Hall of Fame. They are: American League President Dr. Bobby Brown, Jackie Robinson, Chambliss, Bob Andrews, Lynn Compton, Curt Counts, Moose Myers, Ed Stewart, Randy Schwartz and Kenny Washington.

Admission is $3.00.
