New, 2 comments

Live in North Carolina? Go see our Boilers this weekend!

If you’re a Purdue alum and you live in North Carolina you’re in luck! Purdue baseball is coming your way, and we need to have a very loud and boisterous backing as we face Houston, North Carolina A&T, and the host Tar Heels. When Purdue played in the 2012 tournament in Gary there were great crowds, and we closed this season by winning 13 straight at Alexander Field. This team definitely responds to a good crowd, so come on out and support them. First, here is your ticket info:

All games will be played at North Carolina’s on campus Boshamer Stadium, which features 4,100 seats. Here is the full schedule for the weekend:

Many times the host teams like to play the prime time second game on the opening night, but North Carolina has opted to play game 1 at 2pm. That means our game against Houston on Friday will be the night game.
