Worcester Tornadoes Summer at Becker

Published on Monday, May 21st, 2007

Becker College administration and staff members turned out this morning to welcome 17 Worcester Tornadoes players to their summer home on the College’s Worcester campus. Team manager Rich Gedman was on hand to help his players get settled in, and City Manager Mike O’Brien stopped by to welcome the team to the community.

The 2007 season marks the second year Tornadoes teammates have bunked on the Becker campus. Becker President Ken Zirkle said of the relationship, "It’s an excellent opportunity for the players to become part of the local community, and it’s an example of the many partnerships between Worcester business and higher education."
