Aces, Wolf Pack to play exhibition game

RENO – The Reno Aces Baseball Club and the University of Nevada baseball team will play an exhibition game at 6:05 p.m. Tuesday, April 6 at Aces Ballpark, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the University of Nevada Dugout Club.

The game will serve as the final tune-up for the Aces before the April 8 Opening Day at Aces Ballpark, while Nevada’s student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete against some of professional baseball’s top prospects at the Triple-A level.

Through the partnership, a portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated directly to the University of Nevada’s Dugout Club, which benefits the Wolf Pack baseball program.

Tickets are $13, $7 for children, and go on sale March 11 at the Aces box office or by calling (775) 334-7000.

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 between seven and nine innings, depending on the status of the Aces pitching staff. 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’ regular season starts April 8. For information on tickets, call (775) 334-4700 or visit http://www.RenoAces.com.

The 5-3 Wolf Pack host Central Arkansas in the home opener at Peccole Park, at 2 p.m. Friday at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For ticket information call 348-PACK or go to NevadaWolfPack.com.
