Cal State Fullerton Night at Dodger Stadium

Give me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks and a few thousand Titans, and you have the makings of one great night of baseball at the inaugural CSUF Night at Dodger Stadium Friday. Titans cheered on the Boys in Blue wearing special event LA/CSUF hats while watching President Fram Virjee toss the ceremonial first pitch. Alums, faculty, staff and students also were treated to a special treat: CSUF opera student Danielle Priybl singing the national anthem. The Alumni Association-sponsored event was a hit with the fans, as well as former Titans and now Dodgers Justin Turner and Dylan Floro. Play Ball!

Yanitza Berrios '17 and Alexandra Beltran '17 showed off their Titan Pride during the CSUF Night at Dodger Stadium. While at CSUF, Berrios was ASI president and Beltran was vice president.

President Fram Virjee tossed out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the game. Dodger Justin Turner, an alum and Titan baseball standout, did the honors of catching the president’s pitch.

Alumni Association’s Justine Budisantoso sports a brand new Dodgers/CSUF hat. Fans who bought the special event ticket each received the baseball cap.

Music major Danielle Pribyl sang a rousing version of the national anthem before the start of the game between the Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants. Even though the Dodgers lost, Pribyl was a powerhouse at home plate, belting out the anthem.

Alum Michelle Wagner '14 poses with Tuffy the Titan on the field of Dodger Stadium. Tuffy was everywhere during the event, taking photos with fans, helping with the on-field ceremonies and also snacking on all you can eat peanuts.

“I am super excited and a little nervous,” Pribyl, who is studying opera, admitted. “It isn’t opera but what an experience! And what a way to kick off my final year at Cal State Fullerton.”

Alumn Andre Leon '16 and student Vanessa Villa spent the evening cheering for the Dodgers and soaking in all the Titan Pride during CSUF Night at Dodger Stadium.

Alumni Association President Adam Koyanagi '07, Connor Virjee, Justin Turner, President Virjee, First Lady Julie Virjee, and Tuffy the Titan got in a few photos and selfies on the field before President Virjee threw out the first pitch.
