The ACU Alumni Association will again be hosting an ACU night at a Texas Rangers game. It’s called “Meet us at the ballpark” and will take place June 10 at 7 p.m.
The Rangers will be playing against the Cleveland Indians.
According to the ACU website, last year more than 800 members of the ACU community attended the game.
Once again, the ACU Alumni Association is offering a huge discount on tickets for the All You Can Eat Porch.
The ACU website said tickets are $25 each and children age 2 and under are free. Â Regular tickets for the All You Can Eat Porch cost $47. The ticket price includes as many hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, popcorn and grilled chicken sandwiches as you can eat and all the soft drinks or water you can drink before the 8th inning.
Members attending the game will be sitting in sections 248 and 249 of the All You Can Eat Porch in the right corner, closest to the first base and center field gates and parking lots A, C and D south and east of the ballpark.
Parking in ballpark lots is $15 and is not included in the ticket price. The gates open at 5 p.m. and tickets will be mailed about a week before the game.
Samantha Adkins, senior Alumni Relations officer, is helping with the event.
“This gathering is so much fun for everyone,” Adkins said. “It’s a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, meet new ones and enjoy being with other ACU alumni.”
Adkins said this is the second year they’ve been in the All You Can Eat Section. Before that, the Alumni Association used the Museum section as the venue.
She said this year ACU has the opportunity to throw out the first pitch.
“We’re still working on who that VIP will be,” Adkins said. “It will be a notable alum.”
Mark Lavendar, a former employee, had the idea about this event back in 2004.
Kaila Daley, sophomore nursing major from Boerne, went to the game last year and already has her tickets for this year’s game.
“The Rangers are my favorite baseball team,” Daley said. “So combining them with ACU is a dream come true, plus it’s a great deal on the tickets.”
The registration deadline to purchase tickets is June 3 at 11:55 p.m.
