“We can’t ready for Wednesday night to get here,” added CSU head coach Greg Appleton. “You can feel the enthusiasm around campus and the community, and we are thankful for the support we’ve been shown. We are excited to welcome Auburn to Columbus and show off our wonderful facility.”

Columbus State and Auburn are pleased to announce that the ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by Brigade Commander Colonel Michael Scarpulla of Fort Benning.
