The Hancock Bulldogs will finally get to break in their new field on Saturday, Jan. 26. The day will begin with the alumni taking the field for batting practice at 10:30 a.m., followed by the much-anticipated rededication of John Osborne field at 11:45 a.m.
The master coach himself, John Osborne, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The game will kick off with the alumni taking the field against the Bulldogs.
The new field is directly across the street from Allan Hancock College, featuring new irrigation, dugouts, batting cages, and grass baselines.
The public is invited to attend this event free of charge; a snack bar will be on site and available starting at noon. The Bulldogs will play their first game on the new field Feb. 7 at 2 p.m. against Porterville College.
