It's spring. Ready for some baseball? On Fridays this season, it'll be free.
It's called 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 five more home games on Fridays this season.
Fridays this spring will be a wonderful time to get out with the family and enjoy America's pastime for free.
We wanted to do something for the community, said Athletics Director Nelson 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 home Friday games will fall on March 20 against Albany at 7 p.m., March 27 against Samford at 7 p.m., April 17 against The Citadel at 7 p.m., May 1 against Western Carolina at 7 p.m. and May 8 against Appalachian State at 7 p.m.
