Saturday’s Western vs. Arkansas-Little Rock baseball game will be more than a pivotal Sun Belt Conference contest for the Toppers.
Western will celebrate its 100th year of athletics, which also coincides with the formal dedication of the Paul Orberson Clubhouse.
The first 100 fans at Denes Field Saturday will receive a commemorative bat. The Clubhouse is open from 11 a.m. until noon, when the clubhouse will be dedicated. The game begins at 3 p.m.
Western’s first game on record was a May 2, 1910 baseball win over what is now known as Eastern Kentucky University. In that game, the Topper pitcher threw a no hitter.
