Please note that due to these schedule changes the baseball program's toy drive, where fans are asked to bring unused and unopened toys to Reckling Park to benefit the Children's Assessment Center, will now be all-day Saturday. The silent auction and raffle held in conjunction with this drive will be during the first game of the double-header (only). The doubleheader now serves as the Rice Kids Club game, where youngsters in the group can get into both games for free. All kids will still be able to run the bases after Saturday's second game, weather permitting.
