BATON ROUGE - Free admission to Saturday's game highlights a fun-filled weekend of promotions and events when Arkansas visits Tiger Park for a three-game SEC Western Division series.
There are a limited number of reserved seats available in sections 101 and 107 for Saturday's 4 p.m. tilt on a first-come, first-serve basis along with standing-room only admission to the berm located in left field. Season tickets holders are still being asked to bring their tickets to Saturday's game to be able to sit in their normal chair-back and bleacher seats. Gates will open 90 minutes prior to first pitch.
Sunday's series finale at 1 p.m. is one of the most anticipated events each season at Tiger Park where fans can enjoy the ball game with their furry friends as part of "Bark in the Park". There will be dog-themed contests and prize packs.
All dogs are required to be on a leash at all times and not allowed to go into the seating areas. There will be a "Canine Cabana" located in section 206 on the third base side concourse.
YELP! Baton Rouge, a non-profit animal welfare organization that is committed to ending euthanasia of healthy and treatable companion animals in the Greater Baton Rouge area, will be bringing five dogs for adoption for a nominal fee. All dogs up for adoption have had all of their shots and are either spade/neutered. YELP! Baton Rouge has been responsible for 1,000 adoptions to date since Fall 2009.
All three games of the series will have live video, live audio and live stats inside the Geaux Zone on www.LSUsports.net/live. The game also will be carried live Country Legends 104.9 FM in the Baton Rouge area with Patrick Wright and Kent Lowe set to call the action.
Fans also can follow every pitch of LSU softball this season via live in-game updates on LSU softball's social media outlets at www.Facebook.com/lsusoftball and @lsu_softball on Twitter.
As part of Brittany Mack's "Geaux Play" initiative, LSU softball is encouraging fans to share the gift of sports with special needs children. Fans can donate new or gently used sports equipment during the remaining LSU softball home games at Tiger Park. For more information, visit www.LSUsports.net/geauxplay.
All items collected will be given directly to the Miracle League Association and six local schools that Mack will visit during the season. At LSU's series finale versus Ole Miss on April 22, Mack will invite all the children to the game as her special VIP guests for "Geaux Play" day at Tiger Park.
The Tiger Park Ticket Booth will open 90 minutes prior to first pitch on Friday and Sunday. Fans can purchase tickets on-site starting at $5 for adult general admission and $3 for youth ages 3-12. Tickets also are available online at www.LSUtix.net.
Season ticket holders will have their tickets scanned upon entrance to Tiger Park. The LSU Athletics Ticket Office urges season ticket holders to be cautious when separating their bar-coded tickets. The barcode must be attached to the ticket when arriving at the gate. If the barcode detaches, season ticket holders must stop by the LSU Athletics Ticket Office on the first floor of the Athletics/Administration Building for a reprint of their tickets.
