The Blazer Brigade and Spartan Baseball

The Spartan Foundation's annual Spring Blazer Brigade is scheduled for Tuesday, May 12th at San Jose Municipal Stadium as the Spartans take on cross-town rivals, the Santa Clara Broncos. The Blazer Brigade will be from 6:00 - 8:00 pm on the Martinelli Deck next to the Spartans home dugout along the 3rd Base dugout line. Be sure to wear your favorite Spartan cap and enjoy ballpark fare of food & beverages. Complimentary tickets will be provided and all Blazer Donors will be recognized at during the game on the diamond!

The Blazer Brigades recognize Spartan Foundation donors who have made a commitment of $2,500 or more. Today, the cost of a single scholarship exceeds $22,000. Many of our 450 student-athletes would not have the opportunity to succeed on the field or in the classroom without academic and scholarship assistance. Your gift makes a difference.
