|Wildcats/Ladycats selling Kid Glove Reds tickets|
Each year, the Wildcat Baseball team has participated in the Cincinnati Reds’ Kid Glove program to help offset the rising cost of baseball equipment. The program provided $250,000 in equipment to local baseball/softball programs for the 2013 season. This year is no different for Wildcat Baseball but they have been joined by Ladycat Fastpitch in selling Kid Glove Reds’ tickets.
Wildcat baseball has received 300 ticket vouchers for four Reds’ baseball games at a cost of $10 per ticket while Ladycat Fastpitch has 50 tickets for sale. The teams receive $8.00 back from each ticket sold to purchase equipment that is bought through the Reds’ program at a reduced price.
"The Kids Glove game is a great, great program that is so beneficial to the local baseball programs in the past years and we owe a big thank you to the Reds’ organization," Athletic Director Keith Smith commented. “This is money for equipment for both teams that we don’t have to spend or ask the booster organization for, allowing them to do more things for the both programs. It is a huge benefit for us.”
The Wildcat Baseball games are Monday, May 6, and Tuesday, May 7, versus the Atlanta Braves. And in hopefully the midst of a pennant race, Monday, August 19, and Tuesday, August 20, versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Ladycat Fastpitch has tickets for Monday, June versus Colorado Rockies.
If all 350 tickets are sold, the Ladycat Fastpitch team will have $400 for equipment purchases for 2014 while the Wildcat Baseball team will have a $2,400 bonanza.
If you are interested in purchasing individual tickets, taking the whole family or putting together a group for your church, youth group, scout group or just a bunch of friends, contact Keith Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
