Current and former Matador baseball players and coaches got together on Saturday afternoon to play in the 2014 CSUN baseball alumni game, part of the annual alumni weekend.

Fans gathered to watch the game and preview the 2014 Matador baseball squad and enjoyed complimentary food as the baseball team provided grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, and drinks.

Among the attendees was former baseball head coach Bob Hiegert, the most successful head coach in Matador history. Hiegert led the Matadors to two NCAA Division II National Championships and was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Hall of Fame, according to Go Matadors.  The Matadors also the inaugural Bob Hiegert Golf Classic for alumni on Friday.

The Matadors will open their season next Friday in Daytona Beach, Florida as they take on the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats in a three game series beginning Feb. 14.  The Matadors will host the Seattle Redhawks on Feb. 21 for their season home opener.
