University of Central Arkansas alumni and friends will have a chance to enjoy some peanuts and Cracker Jacks in the outfield of Dickey Stephens Park on UCA Night with the Arkansas Travelers in June.
The event will be held Friday, June 14, starting at 6:10 and will feature a casual buffet of burgers, hot dogs, beans, chips, popcorn and soft drinks.
This is the third year for the event, which is held in the Pinnacle Structures Pavilion overlooking right field of the park. In addition to the dinner, attendees receive tickets for that evening’s game, which will feature the Travs squaring off against the Tulsa Drillers.
The event has proven to be a popular one, with numerous attendees returning year after year. Mark and Cindy Fowler of Mayflower have made it to every one.
“We like to attend because we like to go to see the Travelers at least once a year but we really like to see some of the alumni that we don't get to see at other events during the year,” Mark said. “We know several people that can't come during the fall for the tailgates, but that do take a vacation in the summer and make Alumni Night at the Travelers Game part of their plans.
“It is always fun to get together with friends and enjoy a night at the ballpark, even if the field is not purple and gray striped” he added.
Tickets are $15 each and be on sale May 1-30 and can be purchased online at uca.edu/alumni or by calling the alumni office at (501) 852-2955.
