The event benefits the Coach Louis “Rags” Scheuermann Baseball Scholarship, named in honor of the Loyola legend and New Orleans icon.
From 1957 to 1972, Scheuermann led the Wolf Pack baseball team to unprecedented heights, winning 234 games and compiling an impressive .649 winning percentage. He passed away in 1997.
Tickets are $80 per person or $130 per couple, and VIP tables are available for $1,000. The cost includes a buffet, wine, beer and valet parking.
Athletic scholarships were eliminated in 1972 when Loyola disbanded its intercollegiate athletic program. Loyola reinstated its athletic program in the 1990s and athletic scholarships in 2004. The Louis “Rags” Scheuermann Scholarship is the first for Wolf Pack baseball since then.
