As summer approaches, major league baseball stadiums throughout the US fill up with fans who are excited to enjoy a night outside with America’s favorite pastime.

Among those fans are thousands of GW alumni, in cities all across the country, who gather to watch games together and mingle.

For several years, GW has hosted alumni gatherings at numerous ball games throughout the baseball season. These events give alumni a chance to meet fellow Colonials in their city, or enjoy a night out with old friends.

GW hosts baseball games throughout the country, from DC to NY to Denver to San Diego and Los Angeles.

A reception usually takes place before the game, either at the ballpark or at a favorite local spot nearby. Guests can catch up, get acquainted or compare notes about their days as GW students.

Once it’s time for the first pitch, the group sits together during the game to cheer on their team.

A favorite among alumni, the program is popular among a variety of age groups. Nearly every game hosted by GW sells out.

Many 2013 baseball events are now open for registration, and the fun will continue through September.

    With this big build up I expected more than the four major league games listed on the schedule. Are there any activities for GW alums in Wisconsin, where I live?
