As many of you know, yesterday was the final game played at Siebert Field where the Gophers have played baseball since 1971. The Gophers beat St. Thomas 9-2 and improved to 27-20. Video below the other links has the stadium's final hit, a grand slam by Andy Henkemeyer.

Approximately 90 Gopher alums and their families came to the final Siebert Field game. Daughter of Siebert, Marilyn, threw out one of the ceremonial first pitches, along with former Gopher coach George Thomas and alum Terry Steinbach. Prior to the game, alums were allowed to take a few last swings at the storied facility, which housed the Gophers for the past 41 years.

It is the end of an era but there has to be some real excitement about the new facility set to be built!
