Seawolves Baseball Shocks the World

To all Faculty, Staff and Students,

I'm very excited to extend this special invitation to the entire campus community to join us today outside of the Stony Brook University Sports Complex at 2:15 pm as we welcome back our Stony Brook University Seawolves Baseball Team and Coach Matt Senk following their historic run at the Coral Gables Regional and their defeat of the storied Louisiana State University Tigers in Baton Rouge this weekend. Our Seawolves are now the first ever Athletic team in the State University of New York and the first ever America East Conference team to reach the NCAA College World Series.

All wearing red are welcome!!

As a show of support to our amazing team that has "Shocked the World," by defeating some of the top college baseball programs in the country to reach the College World Series, I encourage all faculty,
staff and students to "get your red on," every day this week as we countdown to Friday's first official Stony Brook game in Omaha, Nebraska.

Not only are we encouraging all faculty and staff to wear red, we want you to send us pictures of you and your unit wearing Stony Brook red in support of the Seawolves so we can post it to the website and
Facebook. If you need to update your Stony Brook red wardrobe, there are two retail locations on campus: Melville Library Bookstore and Wolfmart in the Student Activity Center. You can also access apparel
on the Shop SB website ( for your official Seawolves License material.

If you would like a photographer to come take a photo of you and your staff to support the team, contact the communications office at 2-6335 and they will make an appointment to have your picture taken.

The team heads to Omaha on Wednesday and we are planning a special send-off event. Plans are also underway for a viewing party for Friday's game. Details for both events will follow.

A special fan portal through the Stony Brook Athletics website will be set up for those who would like to travel to Omaha to watch Stony Brook compete in person.

I look forward to welcoming the team back at 2:15 today; I hope you can join me.

Now more than ever - "Get Your Red On!"
