Join the Panthers at Miller Park Friday

Just a reminder to fans that the Panthers will be taking on Youngstown State in a doubleheader at Miller Park this Friday, April 29, starting at 3 p.m.

Unlike in the past, the Brewers are out of town, so the 3 p.m. start time will not be an approximate time. So, no waiting for the Brewers and Pirates to play 14 innings before the Panthers hit the field like last season!

Parking lots and gates open at 2 p.m. and admission for the games and parking are both free. Concession stands will be available until midway through the second game as well.

The Panthers will also be honoring the members of the 20th Anniversary Team that day, on the field in between games. Come out to recognize the finest players to put on a UWM uniform over the past 20 years as an NCAA Division I program. Kevin Conway of the Sports Information Office has designed an impressive poster that honors the team and will be given out that day (see image above).

Also, don't forget, fans have a chance to enjoy the games from the AirTran Landing Zone that day as well. That information is available below.

From 5 to 7 p.m., the Airtran Landing Zone will be open to Panther fans.
