Baseball to Have Youth Day Oct. 16 at Orange and Blue World Series
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia baseball team will hold Youth Baseball Day on Oct. 16 during Game 6 of its Orange and Blue World Series at Davenport Field. All Little League programs and youth 14 and under are welcome to attend.
Prior to the 6 p.m. game, all little leaguers will be welcome to come onto the field and play catch in the outfield and meet the Virginia players. Three little leaguers will be chosen to throw out the first pitch, while one will be selected to introduce the lineups for the first inning. Players are encouraged to wear their baseball uniforms.
Authentic Virginia old-timers hats will be available to the first 100 fans entering the ballpark.
Youth Baseball Day will coincide with a special evening at Davenport Field, as Virginia will celebrate the 2009 College World Series and ACC Championship team and hold the team’s ring ceremony. There also will be a video presentation featuring highlights of the 2009 team’s historic season as part of the presentation.
