The setting for this exclusive tailgate event is a shaded green area adjacent to the parking area behind Wildcat Stadium. Enter the parking area at no charge, identify yourself as a Jesuit alumnus, and proceed to the far end of the lot where a large “Welcome Blue Jays” banner beckons like a neon sign. Game tickets are NOT required to enjoy the tailgate festivities. However, tickets for the game will be available at the stadium’s box office and are priced at $8 per adult and child (ages 6-11).

Questions about this event? Contact Jesuit alumni director Mat Grau ’68 at or (504) 483-3840.

Go Blue Jays!
