The Rice baseball team hosts longtime state rival Lamar in a 14-inning exhibition on Saturday (Oct. 18) at Reckling Park. Start time is set for 1 pm. There is no charge for admission to the exhibition. Last week the Owls defeated Tulane 9-4 in the team's first exhibition of the fall.
Kirby Taylor, John Clay Reeves, and Kevin McCanna, the baseball player representatives on the C-USA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), are hosting a food drive during the event to benefit the Houston Food Bank. Please drop your donations of non-perishable items in the boxes located behind home plate. No donation is too big or too small!
Additionally, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to the Houston Food Bank. Please make checks payable to the Houston Food Bank and give it to designated representatives at Saturday's game.

The Houston Food Bank feeds 800,000 hungry people each year by distributing food through nearly 600 hunger relief agencies in 18 southeast Texas counties. The Houston Food Bank stretches every $1 donation to provide a full day of meals for children, adults or seniors.
The Owls thank you for your generosity, and hope to see you at 1 pm Saturday.
