SEC weekends offer multitude of fan-friendly giveaways and special events
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky baseball games will be the place to be this spring, as a jam-packed giveaway and special event calendar highlight the 36-game home schedule at Kentucky Proud Park.
Big Blue Nation will have an opportunity to receive such giveaways as a UK baseball collectors pin, apron, umbrella hat, aviator sunglasses, Hawaiian lei and beach ball and SEC schedule cup. Additionally, each SEC home weekend will feature a theme, including Players Weekend (April 3-5), Bark in the Park (April 9-11), Salute to Service (April 23-25) and Beach Weekend (May 8-10).
For each giveaway, quantities are limited to the first 1,000 fans and early arrival is recommended. Gates will open one hour prior to scheduled first pitch.
With two SEC series running Thursday through Saturday this season, opening night of those (April 9 vs. LSU and April 23 vs. Missouri) will be Ladies Night, with ladies receiving free admission and a UK baseball SportBand giveaway. Friday nights during league play will be giveaway night and at the conclusion of Saturday conference games kids can run the bases. On the SEC weekends with a Sunday game, player trading cards and postgame autographs will be available.
The Wildcats again will face one of the most difficult schedules in the country in 2020 with 31 games slated against teams that made the 2019 NCAA Tournament, including 11 against College World Series participants and 20 against teams ranked in the preseason top 11. The season opens on the road against perennial power TCU before returning home on February 18 to open a 15-game homestand as part of a 36-game schedule at Kentucky Proud Park.
