Video: Baseball game to support flood relief
Nationally ranked Vanderbilt and Louisville meet Tuesday, May 11, at Hawkins Field in a key game that has now taken even more meaning after the Department of Student Athletics announced it would serve to help Middle Tennessee flood relief efforts.
Vice Chancellor David Williams is making the remaining unsold tickets for the game, approximately 1,300 in the 3,700 seat stadium, free of charge to the public with the hope that all fans will donate to the Red Cross and/or the Second Harvest Food Bank at the entry gates. Here are some key game details:
*The free tickets will begin to be distributed next Tuesday (May 11) at 8:30 at the McGugin Center box office. They will be distributed on a first-come basis with no assurances that there will be enough to meet the potential demand.
*Game time is 6:00 p.m. It is a rematch of last year’s NCAA Tournament Regional final.
*Monetary donations are encouraged to the Nashville Area Red Cross while canned goods and water will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
*Vanderbilt officials are working on a variety of special activities for this game.
