RENO, Nev.—The Reno Aces and the University of Nevada baseball team will renew their annual exhibition contest at 6:05 p.m. on Tuesday, April 1 at Aces Ballpark, with proceeds once again benefiting the Nevada Dugout Club, the entities jointly announced today.
The University of Nevada Ticket Office is selling discounted tickets for only $10, while supplies last. Tickets will be available on Friday, Jan. 17, at the 30th annual Bobby Dolan Dinner. Tickets can also be purchased leading up to the game at Legacy Hall from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by calling 348-PACK option #2 or on www.nevadawolfpack.com.
Tickets for the game are $14 for adults, $10 for college students and $7 for children 12 and younger and seniors 62 and older. Aces season-ticket holders will have the chance to purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $10, and will be eligible for an exclusive presale opportunity. Tickets may be purchased online at www.RenoAces.com or at the Reno Aces Ticket Office beginning on the official single game on sale date, which will be announced next month.
The 2014 game will mark the fifth-straight exhibition contest between Reno’s Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks and the NCAA Division I Wolf Pack. The Aces are 3-1 all-time against the Wolf Pack, including an 11-6 victory last season.
“We are excited to partner with the University of Nevada to again host the exhibition game this year,” said Stuart Katzoff, Aces President and Managing Partner. “The chance to give back to the community by supporting the local university is a great opportunity, and we look forward to making another donation to support the Wolf Pack baseball team.”
In each of the last four seasons, the Aces have made a $15,000 donation to the University of Nevada Dugout Club, an organization that serves as the main fundraising body of the University of Nevada baseball team.
The game will serve as the final tune-up for the Aces before opening the 2014 season on April 3, while Nevada’s student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete against some of professional baseball’s top prospects at the Triple-A level.
Once again this season, the game will be played in an exhibition format, with Aces pitchers and catchers playing for both squads. All players will use wood bats, and the contest will last seven and a half innings. Utilizing the traditional Minor League Spring Training format, pitchers will be placed on a pitch count, and should a pitcher reach his limit, the game will immediately proceed to the next half inning.
The Aces kick off the 2014 season at home on April 3 by hosting the El Paso Chihuahuas, the newest Pacific Coast League franchise. First pitch is slated for 6:35 p.m. Discounted full and partial season tickets are on sale now. For more information, and to purchase an Aces ticket plan, call (775) 334-4700.
