More than 20 former Buc softball players pitched in and played in the annual alumni game in January. The game, held at Buccaneer Field, brought together players from as far back as 1991 and served as a kick-off to the sport’s spring season. Players included Barry’s Vice President for Human Resources Jennifer Boyd-Pugh, an All-American who led the Bucs to its first national final in 1994. It was a family affair for former shortstop, Cindi Perantoni Rodgers ’01, whose sister, Ali Perantoni Bronis ’08, also played four seasons with the Bucs at shortstop. “It was great to be back on the Bucs softball field again with old teammates and fellow alums, especially my sister,” Rodgers said. “Coach Penner did a great job and I look forward to supporting Barry softball this season!”

Several players who had played professionally, including Chris Stasio (1990-1993), Alex Meneses (2003-2006), Nick Corbeil (2003-2006), and Cesar Aranguren (2003-2006) came back for the action.
