Gardner-Webb Night at the American Legion World Series

Each summer, the top eight American Legion Baseball teams, their families and fans converge on Shelby, N.C., for the American Legion World Series.

Gardner-Webb University Alumni Relations is inviting alumni and friends to participate in all the excitement on GWU Night, which is Friday, Aug. 16, at Keeter Stadium in Shelby, N.C.

Beginning at 6 p.m., alumni can visit with each other in the air-conditioned GWU tent while enjoying an assortment of tasty treats to please the whole family.

“Attending this event is an excellent way for alumni to connect with each other and with Gardner-Webb University,” shared Leah Robinson Clevenger, director of Alumni Relations. “Our new president, Dr. William Downs, will be on hand to greet alumni and their families.”

After the meet and greet, Downs will throw out the first pitch, and alumni can join the crowd to cheer on the athletes as they play in game six of the tournament.
