An exciting chapter was added to the 107-year history of baseball at the University of Kentucky when Coach Keith Madison and Director of Athletics Mitch Barnhart introduced the inaugural UK Baseball Dugout Club on Thursday, Sept. 26.

In addition to Madison’s guests, new UK athletics staff members Greg Byrne (Associate Director of Athletics), Rob Mullens (Executive Associate Director of Athletics), and Rick Thompson (Associate Director of Athletics) were introduced to the crowd of over 100 former players, alumni, fans and Bluegrass baseball supporters. Before the festivities, the Dugout Club enjoyed refreshments and a delicious catered lunch by Billy’s BBQ.
