May 7, 2008
FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU Baseball team will play its final three home games of the regular season this upcoming weekend. A multitude of events surround the final homestand as the Frogs host UT-Pan American beginning Saturday night. They will honor five seniors Saturday night, pay tribute to mother's around the world on Sunday and host Fort Worth ISD seventh-grade students on Monday.
Fans are encouraged to come to the ballpark early on Saturday night as the team will honor the five 2008 seniors prior to first pitch. Clint Arnold, Bryan Kervin, Dillon Farish, Steve Ellington and Collin Auten will all be suiting up for their final home stand at TCU. A ceremony honoring the five will commence around 6:10 with individual recognition followed by a tribute video.
On Sunday, the Horned Frogs will do their part in the fight against breast cancer as they will don pink jerseys in honor of Mother's Day. The Horned Frog baseball mothers will throw out the first pitch prior to the game, which is slated for a 1 p.m. start. The marketing department will also be passing out pink t-shirts at the ballpark.
Additionally, the jersey's worn by the players will be on sale during the game with proceeds going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The jerseys will cost $60, 15 of which will be donated to Komen for the Cure, Tarrant County Affiliate. If they run out of jersey's that are already made, fans will have the opportunity to place an order for one that will be custom made and delivered in two weeks.
Finally, Monday will mark the return of FWISD day to the ballpark. A special start time of 11 a.m. will see thousands of select seventh-grade students pack the stands at Lupton Stadium.
