As part of the K-12 Student Day promotion, the first 25 students in grades K-12 will receive free tshirts along with the first 25 FSU students who present a valid Bulldog identification card.
In addition, all kids in attendance will have an opportunity to run the bases after the game and also participate in pitching and batting skills competitions within the batting cages at the FSU complex.
Admission to the doubleheader is free and parking is available near the facility.
