Alumni Go Maroon for the Yankees

All clad in maroon baseball caps featuring the Fordham “F”, 170 alumni, family members, and friends gathered for the third annual Tampa Brunch and Baseball event on March 11.

Sponsored by Alumni Relations, the day included a Mass at the Jesuit High School’s St. Anthony Chapel led by Joseph M. McShane, S.J., Fordham’s president, and Daniel Gatti, S.J., Fordham’s alumni chaplain and interim director of alumni relations.

Brunch was held in the Yankee Pavilion at Steinbrenner Field. Peter Farrell, director of admissions, discussed Fordham’s achievements and Fr. McShane gave updates on the University and the Excelsior | Ever Upward | The Campaign for Fordham.

Following brunch, the group watched the Yankees triumph over the Phillies, 4-0. The Fordham group got a shout out by the announcer and on the scoreboard during the 7th inning stretch.

Following the Yankee win, several alumni got autographs from Yankee greats, Reggie Jackson and David Wells.
