GREENSBORO, NC – UNC Greensboro Director
of Athletics Nelson Bobb has announced a special promotion in which
fans will be able to get into this season's Friday baseball
home games for free.
The Spartans will call it "Freebie Fridays" and all fans will be able to get into games played at UNCG Baseball Stadium on a Friday for no admission charge. UNCG will play eight home games on Fridays this season, beginning with the season opener this Friday, Feburary 20 against preseason nationally-ranked Kent State at 4 pm. There will also be one additional "Freebie Friday" game added on Wednesday, March 11 at 2 pm against Old Dominion.
"We wanted to do something for the community," said Bobb. "It is no secret that we as a nation are facing difficult economic times. We thought it would be a good gesture to let people come to a baseball game for free. Baseball is America's pastime. We felt Friday was a logical night to try this since it isn't a school night and might not have as many youth leagues playing – making it a Family Night of sorts."
The other home Friday games will fall on February 27 against Princeton at 4 pm, March 13 against Georgia Southern at 7 pm, March 20 against Albany at 7 pm, March 27 against Samford at 7 pm, April 17 against The Citadel at 7 pm, May 1 against Western Carolina at 7 pm and May 8 against Appalachian State at 7 pm.
Tickets for all UNCG athletic events are available by calling 336-334-3250 or online at UNCGSpartans.com with the print-at-home system.
