The Arkansas State baseball team and supporters will gather for the 18th annual Grand Slam Banquet. The doors will open at 5 p.m.

The guest speaker for the evening is former St. Louis Cardinal catcher, three-time Gold Glove winner, and Major League All-Star, Tom Pagnozzi.  Currently, Pagnozzi is founder and chairman of Northwest Arkansas-based Pagnozzi Parker Charities, whose mission is to "open the doors of athletic experiences to children of low-income families with the goal of advancing the well-being of children by giving them the same athletic opportunities as their peers.”

Several ticket options are available, including Grand Slam tables for $600 and a Heavy Hitter package for $1,000 that includes a premium table location, an autographed baseball by Pagnozzi, and an exclusive reception with a personal photo with Pagnozzi prior to the event. Table options include eight guests or seven with an A-State baseball player. Individual tickets are available for $75 and youth tickets (13 and under) are available for $25.

The event also features dinner, an opportunity to meet the 2020 A-State Baseball team, a silent and live auction, a 50/50 raffle, and a special guest appearance from semifinalist on “The Voice,” Marybeth Byrd. The A-State baseball program will also be awarding the Ed Way “Heart & Hustle Award.”
