ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Lobo Baseball Update

• This past spring, members of the 2008 squad participated in the Albuquerque Public Schools "Power Pals" program at Kirtland Elementary School. The program is designed to give "at risk" children one-on-one interaction with mentors in order to overcome emotional, academic and personal difficulties. APS recognized the teams' efforts in the 19th year of their involvement in the program.

"These athletes are young enough for the children to relate to," wrote Kirtland Elementary School principal Peter Espinosa. "Our students admire and respect these young people and see them as role models."

"The players gain a great deal from the mentorship program as well and enjoy being actively involved in the community," Lobos head coach Ray Birmingham said. "It is a great opportunity to serve as a role model and make a difference."

Patrick Leach will be the new volunteer assistant coach for the 2008-2009 season. Leach is from Wichita Falls, Texas, and will be working with the hitters and infielders. This is his eighth year in college baseball, having previously assisted at Stetson (2008), Paris JC (2006-07) and Daytona State College (2001-04). Leach has also spent three years coaching in NCAA-sanctioned summer leagues.

• The Lobo Baseball Golf Invitational on Aug. 23 proved to be a success. The event was held to fundraise for the upcoming season. Former Lobo Joe Patterson, who played for the Cherry and Silver in the late 1950s, made the trip to be in attendance. The baseball program will host its next golf outing on Oct. 3 as part of the Alumni Baseball events taking place Homecoming weekend, Oct. 2-4.
