NOTRE DAME, Ind. - In what has become an annual tradition, the University of Notre Dame baseball team will hold the 13th Meet the Team Dinner Tuesday, Feb. 25 in Club Naimoli at the Joyce Center from 6-9 p.m. Following the dinner, the team will partner with Notre Dame's The Bald & The Beautiful organization to have their heads shaved to raise money for The St. Baldrick's Foundation.

The guest speaker for this year's event will be former Irish All-American and MLB pitcher Aaron Heilman. Heilman, who played for the New York Mets, Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks over nine years, was the 14th Notre Dame student-athlete to become a four-time All-American and the 14th Division I pitcher to reach 40-plus wins and 400-plus strikeouts in a career. The Logansport, Ind., native led the nation in ERA as a freshman and left the program with a plethora of Notre Dame and BIG EAST records.  

A pre-dinner reception with the Notre Dame coaches and Heilman from 6-6:45 p.m. will offer fans a chance to meet and get autographs with the former big leaguer.
