    Pacific Athletics: Tigers Triple Play This Saturday

    Apr 27, 2010

    The second annual Tigers Triple Play will be taking place this Saturday, May 1. The event kicks off with the Pacific Softball team taking on Cal State Fullerton in a double header at Bill Simoni Field on the Pacific campus. The game starts at noon.

    Food and fun festivities will follow the softball game at 4 p.m. at the Sunken Field, directly next to the Bill Simoni Field. There will be live music by the Advocates and Sugar Water Purple. There will be a brisket and hot dog barbeque and lots of free giveaway items, as well as a chance to win great raffle prizes including a flat screen TV and bike. There will be a BeepBall Demonstration and more! To round out the afternoon, the Pacific Baseball team faces the #12th ranked Cal State Fullerton Titans at Klein Family Field at 6 p.m.

    Pacific Athletics has teamed up with a number of organizations for this event including RSC Opportunities for Special People, the United Way, the Alumni Association, Lions, Pacific Office of Services for Students with Disabilities, KPAC, Pac 2 TV, and ASuop.

    "Tigers Triple Play is an opportunity for students to mingle with folks with disabilities. It's important to see there are different people in the world," said Dr. Alan Ray, a professor in Communication at Pacific and one of the event coordinators. "Also, it is a great opportunity for free food and prizes."

    The cost of the event is just $5 and includes admission to both games and the BBQ. Admission is free to all Pacific students and, remember, kids come free (ages 12 & under) courtesy of Wells Fargo.
