Donor Days: Kohorst Family MVP Club day at the Hog
The Kohorst Family MVP Club provides an exclusive experience to grand slam members of the Diamond Club to enjoy the Jayhawks. LAWRENCE, Kan. – Throughout the course of the 2017 season, Kansas baseball will honor its many donors and supporters of the program with special “Donor Days” at Hoglund Ballpark.
Tuesday’s contest against Oral Roberts marks the first Donor Day of the season, as the club honors the Kohorst Family for their continued generosity and support since Matt laced up the spikes from 2010-12.
“The Jayhawks are very grateful for the Kohorst Family and their continued generosity to the program,” head coach Ritch Price said. “Support from people like the Kohorsts have made everything you see at Hoglund Ballpark a reality, and gives the current players a first-class experience at the Division I level. We are forever grateful for their generosity and support.”
With help from the Kohorsts, grand slam members of the Kansas Baseball Diamond Club are provided an exclusive hospitality area to root on the Jayhawks at home.
The Kohorst Family MVP Club provides food and beverages to those members with the option of watching the game from either the Bud Walker Patio or Trombold Lounge. The exclusivity of this unique gameday experience provides a fun-filled environment as the club overlooks the Jayhawks’ dugout and offers a one-of-a-kind vantage point to catch the game.
Matt Kohorst played baseball at Kansas from 2010-12, where he was a three-year letterwinner and First Team Academic All-Big 12 honoree. He appeared in 26 games during his time, posting a perfect 3-0 record. He struck out 20 percent of the batters he faced (30-of-150), while holding hitters to a .286 batting average.
Upon graduation in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Business Management and Leadership, Kohorst worked for Alliant Insurance, Inc., as a Program Administrator for their Owner/Contractor Controlled Insurance Programs for the Construction Services Group. Then in 2014, he joined the management team at Everest Properties, where he currently serves as a Senior Financial Analyst.
The Jayhawks will honor Kohorst, and his father, Robert, with a pregame recognition and first-pitch privileges against the Golden Eagles Tuesday afternoon.
