UE Hosts IU Baseball Team – Homecoming for Dunham and Ashley
The Big Ten and the MVC face off in an interstate baseball battle at Braun Stadium on the campus of the University of Evansville. The UE Purple Aces welcome the Indiana Hoosiers to town this Friday, April 12th at 6pm.
It'll be a nice homecoming for a couple Hoosier ballplayers from Evansville. Family and friends will be on hand to cheer for Reitz grad Elijah Dunham and Memorial alumni Drew Ashley. Both players had a great freshman season in 2018 and looking forward to an even bigger and better sophomore season.
Dunham, a three-sport letterman from Reitz High School, played in 38 games for the Hoosiers last season, spending time at first base and as designated hitter.
Ashley, a 4-year varsity starter for Memorial High School, was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team. The infielder appeared in 32 games, starting 22 of them, and finished the season with 3 home runs!
The UE athletic department will be selling t-shirts at the game for just $10 if you exchange an IU t-shirt...it'll cost you $20 without. Limited quantities and sizes will be available and you will NOT want to miss these shirts!
It's Dollar Dog Friday, so you can get those juicy ball park dogs for just a buck! And you'll be entertained by DJ McNaughty throughout the game.
Tickets are just $7 for adults and $5 for youth and seniors.
