UK Baseball is inviting its fans to go out to Kentucky Proud Park this Saturday to participate in a home run derby for free season tickets. The “Swing For Your Seats” event offers fans the opportunity to take five pitches from a pitching machine. From there it is pretty simple: hit a home run, win 2020 season tickets to all UK home games.
Five swings against the machine will cost $20 for adults, $15 for UK students and staff and $10 for children. Children under eight years old will need to clear a 200-foot wall, kids 8-13 a 230-foot wall, and adults will have to hit a true home run.
“Swing For Your Seats” will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. before the Cats take on Arkansas in football at Kroger Field.
Proceeds will go to the UK baseball Diamond Club.
