It's a promotion that allows spectators to purchase “bad songs” for the Reno Aces and Las Vegas Aviators players as they go to bat.
Spectators watching the game can purchase from a list of songs not typically played during baseball for $10, or for $20 they can select a song that is not on the pre-determined list. Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit RMHC® Northern Nevada, which supports families with children receiving treatment at area hospitals.
Bad Songs for a Good Cause started in 2014 to help the charity raise money for its work of keeping families close in their time of need. The collection of songs is diverse and includes choices that aren’t normally played during baseball games, like “Oops I Did It Again” by Britney Spears and “Dancing Queen” by ABBA. They are designed to sound atypical from the usual, motivating at-bat songs for players and to give spectators a unique game experience.
“We are extremely grateful to the Reno Aces for continuing this tradition and for being such a great community partner,” says Laurie Gorris, Executive Director of RMHC® Northern Nevada. “It’s a fun way to educate people about our programs and how we help families while cheering on the Reno Aces.”
The game begins at 6:35 p.m. at Greater Nevada Field.
