Sunday’s skies were blue and the sun was shining bright as fans came out to show their support for the JSU softball team.
Fan Day saw over two thousand people crowd to the newly renovated University Field for the festivities. Free food and drink were among the things offered to fans that were in attendance. Fans were also encouraged to participate in games that were played on the field.
The team was introduced to the cheers of the crowd followed by the introductions of coaches and training staff. Several door prizes were given out to lucky fans while the team prepared for a game of dizzy bat against Cocky. Unfortunately Cocky fell short and had to be carried to the finish line by the team.
The afternoon continued with various activities such as t-shirt shoots and Family Feud games. The younger fans were even brought out onto the field to participate in a race against Cocky.
The Jacksonville State softball team is picked to win the OVC East. They will open their season against Saint Louis on February 8th. Their first home game in the newly renovated University Field will be on February 19th against Alabama A&M.
