news story imageChicago (Mar. 24, 2008) A record 144 alumni and friends of Saint Xavier University watched the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs square off during a spring training preseason game on Saturday, March 22, at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, Ariz.

Participants enjoyed skybox seating and warm Arizona sunshine at the 4th annual Saint Xavier University Alumni and Friends Weekend. But neither Northsiders nor Southsiders could claim bragging rights when the game ended in an 8 to 8 tie in the 10th inning.

“We are pleased this event continues to be so popular among the University's alumni and friends,” said President Judith A. Dwyer, Ph.D., who attended the game. “Their support is of tremendous importance as we move toward our vision of becoming a leading comprehensive Catholic university.”
