Wolf Pack Takes On Aces Tuesday Night At Aces Ballpark
April 1, 2013
RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada baseball team will take a break from its regular season to play the Reno Aces in an exhibition contest on Tuesday night at Aces Ballpark. First pitch for the contest is set for 6:05 p.m.
Tuesday's game with the Arizona Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate is the fourth meeting between the Reno teams and is a fundraiser for Nevada's Dugout Club. The Pack won for the first time last year 7-3 after the Aces took the first two meetings. The Aces won 9-3 in 2011 and 11-1 in the inaugural game in 2010.
In each of the last three seasons, the Aces have made a $15,000 donation to the University of Nevada Dugout Club, an organization that serves as the main fundraising body of the Wolf Pack baseball team.
The game will serve as the final tune-up for the Aces before opening the 2013 season on April 4, while Nevada's student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete against some of professional baseball's top prospects at the Triple-A level.
Once again this season, the game will be played in an exhibition format, with Aces pitchers and catchers playing for both squads. All players will use wood bats, and the contest will last seven and a half innings. Utilizing the traditional Minor League Spring Training format, pitchers will be placed on a pitch count, and should a pitcher reach his limit, the game will immediately proceed to the next half inning.
