As the Cardinal men’s baseball team entered their new clubhouse for the first time, selfies were taken; high-fives were given; and exclamations of excitement filled the air. A special ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in January, as Saint Mary’s unveiled its new $704,000 baseball clubhouse to the team for the first time. The 2,500-square-foot facility was made possible by a generous lead gift from alumnus Marc Weisenburger ’75. The players walked around their new locker room and players’ lounge with big-screen TVs and couches — as well as the coaches’ space, bathrooms/shower facilities, and laundry and storage areas — all impressively branded with Cardinal Pride. Weisenburger, of Plymouth, Minn., made the lead gift in honor of his experiences at Saint Mary’s, both in school and on the field — particularly under the guidance of Hall of Fame Coach Max Molock. The clubhouse will be named “Pudge’s Place” after Weisenburger’s nickname from his playing days as a catcher with the Saint Mary’s baseball team from 1971 to 1975. A public open house for the clubhouse will be held the afternoon of April 27, and more details will be announced soon.
