February Baseball in San Antonio

By Bill O'Neil

San Antonio will be talkin' baseball in February--with the return of the Fighting Irish Classic after a year away.  

The tournament--which begins Thursday Afternoon--is back after Notre Dame's recently hired coach dropped it last year.  

"I had no idea how important this tournament was to the players and to their famileis--so we want to start it again" said tournament director Ben Davis--recounting the Coach's decision to put the tournament back on the schedule. He told 550 KTSA News you'll see some Division I firepower. 

"We've got Santa Clara, Gonzaga, Incarnate Word, and Notre Dame" Davis said, hoping the presence of the UIW team will help boost attendance numbers.  

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 10 and under--with active and retired service members getting in for free Saturday--with a military ID.
