Dear Lobo Baseball Family,

As I am sure you are aware, we tragically lost one of our own this week. Jackson Weller was one of the classiest young men I have ever had the pleasure to coach and this Friday, May 10, we would like to honor him and his memory, with all of our Lobo Baseball family

Lobo Baseball will host a tailgate beginning at 4p.m. on Friday. There is no need to bring anything as Rex’s Hamburgers will be supplying the food while drinks will also be provided for those who are able to stop by to share stories and honor Jackson. There is also no need RSVP! We are looking forward to having as many of you that can make it to come out and join us in honoring our teammate. We hope to have a “packed house” in his memory.

In addition to the tailgate, a small ceremony will take place on the field prior to the 6 p.m. first pitch and National Anthem, along with some other special tributes from our team.

We hope you will be able to join us as we all come together as a family to honor Jackson Weller, and all that he meant to Lobo Baseball as well as the UNM community.

Thank you and I hope to see you there,

Coach Birmingham
