Hawley Field will be full of former West Virginia University baseball players for this weekend's Alumni Weekend on Friday and Saturday. 

To honor Breast Cancer Awareness this month, three former players did an autograph signing hosted at the Ramada Inn in Morgantown.  Jedd Gyorko, David Carpenter and Grant Buckner spent the day signing autographs and talking sports to all the Mountaineer fans that attended.

Since Buckner's grandmother passed away from Breast Cancer, he was very happy to help the fight anyway he could. 

Carpenter was the most experienced of the three Mountaineers, making his MLB debut with the Houston Astros in 2011.  Carpenter graduated from WVU in 2006 and has been traded between the St. Louis Cardinals, Astros and recently to the Toronto Blue Jays. 

All three former Mountaineer baseball players have been in contact with head coach, Randy Mazey, and plan to attend this weekend's Alumni Weekend. 

"I'm excited. I get to go to the football game Saturday and play in the Alumni game Sunday," said Buckner.  "I have had it marked on my calendar for months now."

The Mountaineer coaching staff is excited going into the season, flying under the radar with a talented ball club.  Mazey tweeted about his appreciation of all the fans who attended Scout Day for the Mountaineers and supported the players as major league scouts took notes during practice. 

Mountaineer baseball is working hard and creating excitement for the spring season.

All fans are welcome to come watch anytime.  Practice is every weekday and begins at 2:30 on Hawley Field.
