The Illinois State softball team welcomes back veterans of its program for Alumni Day on Saturday, April 27, when the Redbirds battle Northern Iowa in a double-header. Game 1 is slated to begin at noon, with Game 2 scheduled for 2 p.m.

To start off the day, an alumni tailgate will be held in the parking lot located between Marian Kneer Softball Stadium and Adelaide Street Field at 10:45 a.m. Fifteen minutes prior to the start of Game 1, an on-field recognition will take place for all alumni in attendance. After the first game commences, special recognition will take place on-field honoring the members of the 1976 NCAA College World Series team.

Then to round out the day, all alumni are encouraged to attend an alumni reception at Pub II.

Those wishing to attend any of the events throughout the day are asked to RSVP to pitching coach Shannon Nicholson by calling (309) 438-3278 or via email at

This event would not be possible without RB4L, Illinois State’s club designed to connect current and former student-athletes, coaches, administrators and associates of ISU.
