Former Razorback and Cardinals catcher to be special Bucks guest

By Ethan Nahté

The UARM Bucks baseball are having their First Pitch Banquet, and they’re bringing a three-time Gold Glove Award winner off the bench for the event.

Tom Pagnozzi is an Arkansas Razorback baseball alumnus. He then moved on to play for the St. Louis Cardinals in ‘87, spending his entire MLB career as a catcher for the Cardinals until August 1998. He won the Gold Glove in 1991, 1992 and 1994. He was also selected for the 1992 All-Star team. He also placed within the top five in Cardinals franchise history in catcher defensive categories.

Pagnozzi’s career stats: .253 AVG, 44 homeruns, 320 RBIs and a .658 OPS.

He will be the special guest at the banquet to help support Bucks baseball, and guests are invited to “hang around” afterwards for autographs.

Although the event is not until Jan. 20, the deadline for table and ticket reservations is Jan. 12. Tables are $100, a table plus eight tickets is $250, and individual tickets are $25.
The event will take place at the Ouachita Center on the UARM campus, 5 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 20. To purchase tickets and tables call Yanel at 479-394-7622 ext. 1210 to pay by cash or check; scan the QR code to pay by credit card.
