Cheer on the Fighting Illini Men’s Baseball team as they take on Northwestern on Saturday, April 20 at 3pm.
On April 20th, 2024, Illini baseball will host Northwestern for the Annual Lee and Euline Eilbracht Scholarship game at Illini Field. This scholarship was established to honor Lee Eilbracht’s coaching tenure at Illinois. He coached from 1952-1978 and was the winningest coach in Illini baseball history until the 2023 season. He led the team to 518 wins, 4 Big Ten Conference Titles, and 3 NCAA District Playoffs.
The scholarship provides a financial stipend to one Illini player each year in recognition of their contributions to the team and achievements in education. In addition, the baseball program honors his memory by having one of his family members throw the first pitch in the game and stand on the field. It’s a great time for everyone. There is no entry fee for the game and it is open to the public.
Games are free to attend. Check out the full schedule here.
