Baseball Banquet Information

Alvin Baseball: A Playoff Tradition

Alvin Baseball: A Playoff Tradition

The 2013 Alvin High School Baseball fundraising banquet is set for January 19th in the Alvin High School cafeteria, as always, the 3rd Saturday in January. Culinary Arts is preparing the dinner, and the players are serving. Doors open at 5:30 pm for browsing the fantastic auction and raffle items that the players and parents are collecting. The program begins at 6:30 pm, and tickets remain at only $15!

Each year we sell about 400 tickets to this banquet and raise funds to improve the facilities and purchase items for the players. All proceeds go the players, the program, or the field!

The program includes an introduction of the players, a moving video of them in the off-season, and a video of sponsor  commercials cast with the players. The highlight of the program is the live auction that always brings prized and uncommon items. See a list of items from the last two years. The silent auction begins when the doors open. A cake auction is also included with elaborate and delicious desserts for your table. Go in as a group and enjoy these treats, or take one home!

Tickets and table assignments

Each player receives eight tickets to sell at $15 each, which will populate one table of their guests. Players are free to sell more tickets, but any ticket buyers over eight will have to sit at a separate table. Coach Rogers will do his best to arrange the tables so that your guests are near each other, but it is not always possible. Players do not have to buy tickets for themselves.

Seniors tables are in front, juniors behind them, then sophomores, and freshman in the back. Coach Rogers makes the table assignments, and it is completely random.

Table decorations

Each player (parent) is responsible for decorating his own table. Decorations should reflect the player himself. Examples include mementos of the player’s baseball career, baby pictures, hobbies, homemade photo placemats—the sky’s the limit.

Tables (except for senior tables) are octagon. Round 8′ – 9′  tablecloths work well under your decorations. You can rent Read more
