RACERS, BANDITS SQUARE OFF IN WEEKEND SERIES

Coming off a two-day series in Chicago on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Akron Racers (5-5) and Chicago Bandits (7-3) meet up again, this time at Firestone Stadium in Akron, Ohio, for a Saturday/Sunday series.

Saturday, June 23
, (today) features the Bandits and Racers playing on the 40th Anniversary of Title IX - the important legislation that impacted women’s athletics and education 40 years ago today, giving many of the athletes you’ll see on the field today a chance to play the sport they love. Racers PR staff members stopped by Friday practice to find out what Title IX meant to the Racers. Check out their responses on YouTube here. The LIVE broadcast for today’s game will begin at 6:25 ET with a special pre-game ceremony to honor 40 of Northeast Ohio’s top female fastpitch players, coaches and administrators. The live stream can be found online here.

In addition to the pre-game festivities, the Racers have some giveaways for fans at the gate. In honor of Title IX, the first 500 fans will receive a commemorative Title IX medallion and all female fans will receive an additional giveaway at the gate. More information about those items can be found here.

Probable pitchers for both teams have not yet been reported. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 ET with the pre-game Title IX ceremony and recognition beginning at 6:25 ET.

Sunday, June 24, features the ever popular Mascot Mania. Over 15 mascots from around the NE Ohio area will be in attendance to celebrate Wheelie’s birthday. Sunday is sure to be a day of sun and fun with mascots from the Cleveland Indians, Columbus Crew, Akron Beacon Journal, Akron General Hospital, Kent State, Cleveland State and many, many more in attendance to interact with fans and cheer on the Racers. Sunday also features Pepsi Kids Day! where every kid entering the ballpark gets a raffle ticket for a Pepsi Prize Pack!

As a special bonus, anyone with a ticket to the Saturday, June 23, game can bring their ticket stub to the ticket windows on Sunday, June 24 and receive a special Buy One, Get One offer on tickets for the Sunday ball game.

First pitch is scheduled for 2:05 ET on Sunday, June 24.
