Cats, bats and...bikinis.
UA baseball, beach balls and bikinis on national TV Sunday
Beach balls, bikinis and water sports might be spotted on national television Sunday during the Arizona baseball home game.
Zona Zoo is organizing a "Beach Day" promotion during the baseball game against the University of Southern California at Sancet Field, 640 N. National Championship Drive. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN nationally, said Amber Harryman, spirit director of Associated Students of the University of Arizona.
Harryman, a classics junior, said Zona Zoo planned the event, which will feature "beach-themed" activities with water balloons and perhaps kiddie pools, to get students to fill up the stands and show their spirit for the team.
Arizona shortstop Jason Donald said when fans show up to support the team it can make a difference to the players and the game.
"Just to hear people cheer and get excited can really bring momentum to the game," said Donald, a regional development sophomore. "We definitely appreciate when huge crowds come out, it makes it a good time to play."
When asked if fans sporting bikinis would distract any of the players, Donald said it wouldn't be a problem.
"Oh, no" Donald said. "We don't have our heads in the stands, usually. But having the fans there creates a good atmosphere."
The game starts at noon. Full price tickets are $5, and Zona Zoo members get in free.
All that's missing a little brewski...
"I came here to play for Coach Olson."
