The 2004 Bruins and Bruin professionals played to a 2-2 tie in a five-inning contest at Jackie Robinson Field.
Philadelphia Phillie Chase Utley drove in the first alumni team runs in the top of the third inning with a double to right field. Both Jack Santora and Los Angeles Dodger Dave Roberts scored on the hit.

David Johnson pitched the fourth frame and struck out two of the three batters he faced.
The Bruin rally started in the bottom of the fourth frame as Sean Carpenter singled to start the frame. After moving to second on a passed ball, Carpenter would come around to score on a Brandon Averill single. Hector Ambriz would drive the tying run with a single. After four innings, the teams were tied at 2-2.

The Old Timers game, which consisted of alumni from 1939 - 1979, ended in a 6-6 tie after a late rally from the home team.
The Young Timers gamer, which featured alumni from 1980-2003, also ended in a stalemate with a 3-3 tie.
