Southwest Tennessee Community College

November 19, 2003


The Southwest Tennessee Community College baseball team will open the 2004 season by participating in the first ever Nostalgia Man Classic on February 16-17, 2004, hosted by the Memphis Redbirds at AutoZone Park. In addition to Southwest, the classic will include Crichton College, Christian Brothers University, LeMoyne-Owen College, and Rhodes College. Southwest, the only two-year college invited to play in the tournament, is scheduled to play two games on Monday, February 16, against LeMoyne-Owen at 10 a.m.; followed by a game against Christian Brothers at 1 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our program,” said Southwest head baseball coach Johnny Ray. “We continually put a good product on the field. This is a chance to prove what we can do. The Southwest baseball program has produced four consecutive seasons of at least 30 wins, and it’s time for people to take notice.”

General admission tickets for the Nostalgia Man Classic will be consigned to each team for sale. These all-inclusive passes will be sold for $15 each. The pass allows entry for all five games and serves as a voucher good for a future weekday Memphis Redbirds game. To purchase tickets, or for more information, contact Southwest head baseball coach Johnny Ray at (901) 333-6060.

Southwest, Tennessee’s largest two-year college, serves more than 12,000 students in Memphis, Shelby, and Fayette counties, and the Tri-State area.

Southwest, a Tennessee Board of Regents institution, is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
