Crowd at a Baseball game.

Hostos Community College’s Alumni Relations Office held a special event on Friday, August 7, at Yankee Stadium. Hostos alumna Lina Cruz, now the Coordinator for Latino Affairs for the New York Yankees, worked to secure 50 tickets for the game for alumni to enjoy a night out and to reconnect with their Hostos family.

The Yankees also saluted new Hostos President David Gómez and the College on the big screen!

“The connection we share with our alumni, including Lina, is special and was highlighted at the game. Our alumni are so important and maintaining those relationships is something I, and my entire office, truly enjoys,” said Nydia Edgecombe, Director of Alumni Relations, who also attended the game with her husband, the former longtime Hostos Director of the Arts and Culture, Wally Edgecombe.
