The first weekend of spring can mean only one thing. BASEBALL! On Saturday, March 23, the Hackett Hornet Baseball Team will pack their gear and head to Arvest Park in Springdale, Arkansas. That’s right. Small town USA is headed to the big city to play in a professional baseball park. Are the Hornets excited? Dang skippy they are! How many people can say they’ve done that?
Along with the Hornets wanting to be a part of this awesome program, this opportunity also comes in the form of a fundraiser. Until the end of the school year, the Hornets will be selling tickets to the Naturals games to cover the cost of playing at their field. “If we sell all the tickets we also get money back as a fundraiser. It is a really cool opportunity and I’m excited we get to be a part of it,” says Coach Adams.
The Hornets still have tickets left for purchase and can be bought from any player or from Coach Adams. The Naturals tickets are $8 each and good for any home Naturals game excluding the Fourth of July.
Hackett will be playing against the (1-7) Sloan-Hendrix Greyhounds from Imboden, Arkansas. The Hornets are sitting at 1-3 in total season play. The game will start at 11:30 a.m. and admission is free. Since there will be no concession available, fans are more than welcome to bring in food and drinks.
