From Madhu -- NYC Alumni Dinner

Greetings NYC Area Baseball Alumni and Friends,

My name is Madhu Satyanarayana '03. I am writing to invite you to an informal baseball alumni dinner next Friday, April 1st, at a steakhouse TBD in Midtown Manhattan (location will be finalized upon determination of how large our party is).

Head Coach Joe Walsh had initially asked me to help set up a formal dinner for the team in conjunction with the Varsity Club the night before they play Columbia this year, for two reasons:

1. Get the team a good meal, but more importantly,
2. Show support for Wes Cosgriff '06 (LHP)

Wes has testicular cancer that has spread throughout his body. He is in chemotherapy and, last I heard, he was beating it, albeit slowly. It turned out that Wes would not be able to come to a dinner, as his schedule will not permit it. Therefore, we had to cancel the formal dinner.

It is our intention turn this into an annual event before either the Princeton or Columbia games, much like the fundraisers that other teams have. The lax team, for example, gets a strong turnout and raises a good deal of money for the program. A strong turnout next weekend will no doubt help us organize a larger event next year. Plus, the more alums in attendance, the more "Glory Days" stories we will all have the pleasure of listening to.

Please RSVP to me via email by Tuesday, March 29, so that I may make a reservation of appropriate size. I look forward to seeing many of you Friday night, and just as many Saturday afternoon.
