Hawkins' Heroes

Like Harry Carey always said, nothing beats fun at the old ball park. There is nothing more American than sitting in the stands of a baseball game with a hot dog in one hand and a cold drink in the other. Vandy's newest student organization, Hawkins' Heroes, is going to create this fun baseball atmosphere for Commodore fans at Hawkins Field.

The Student Government Association, along with the help of the Athletic Department and first-year Head Coach Tim Corbin, is sponsoring this new fan group. Hawkins' Heroes will get the ultimate Vandy Baseball experience this season: watching the Commodores roll through the SEC with a bunch of other wild fans, enjoying a pre-season barbecue with players and coaches, and donning Commodores' game hats in the Hawkins field bleachers. Hawkins' Heroes will also get the inside scoop on Vanderbilt Baseball and opposing teams, giving them the firepower to get inside opponents' heads as Vandy's 10th man.

Commodore players and fans are excited about the intensity Coach Corbin is bringing to Vanderbilt's Baseball program, and Corbin is excited about the atmosphere that Hawkins' Heroes will bring to his team, making Hawkins' Field one of the toughest and most hostile baseball environments in the SEC. Heroes will attend 12 required games with flexibility on weekend series. Required games include SEC powerhouses Florida, LSU and Auburn as well as in-state rival Lipscomb. Heroes will also meet the team and coaching staff at a BBQ dinner before the season begins.

If you are ready to get fired up about Commodore Baseball and want to help make Hawkins Field a great baseball atmosphere, then you are perfect for Hawkins' Heroes.
