Kentucky Proud Park to “Stripe Out” against Louisville


When the Bat Cats return to Kentucky Proud Park on Tuesday, April 16th to take on Louisville for the Battle of the Bluegrass, UK will attempt another “stripe out.”

You may remember during football season Kentucky tried pulling off the stripe out in Kroger Field against Mississippi State without giving out t-shirts, for little success.

This time, instead of trying to get the crowd to color coordinate with their own apparel, Kentucky Proud Park will be giving out free t-shirts, presumably in each section. It is still encouraged to wear the color designated in your section.

So, just to be sure.

Blue: 101-102, 105-107, 110-111

White: 103-104, 108-109, 202-205

First pitch on Tuesday is 6:30 p.m. ET at KPP. The forecast says it will be clear skies and around 75 degrees when the 20th ranked Lousiville Cardinals roll into town.

The Battle of the Bluegrass, free t-shirts, and 75-degree weather? I couldn’t imagine anything better to do on a Tuesday evening.

      No kidding. Everyone had raincoats or ponchos on, and most people wouldn’t have a blue one and a white one. I wore one of those clear emergency ponchos, and I’m sure that didn’t look right on camera either.

    I actually feel like the stripe out would have worked if it wasn’t raining so hard.

    Maybe they can paint that hideous plastic turf to match, permanently!
