Yeah, I suppose it might be getting old to you by now, my love for the odd-shaped ball game. Don't hate me, because I am excited. The Kentucky Wildcats football team takes the field to practice against themselves this Saturday in the annual spring Blue/White game. If you really have to ask, of course I am going. It's one of my only chances per year to sit on the 50-yard line to watch my other favorite sport.
I tossed around in my head going to Thunder over Louisville again this year, which I really enjoy, but when I found out the game was the same day, the choice was made for me. Football it is. This year they are teaming up with the Bat Cats and offering an entire day of Blue fun. I have morning obligations and I am not sure I have time for both, at this point, but I will try. Whens and wheres after the jump.
The baseball game particulars are:
The Wildcat baseball team will play host to LSU at 2 p.m. at Cliff Hagan Stadium. The teams are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation this week (LSU #1, UK #2) by Collegiate Baseball magazine. UK is 32-5 overall this season and LSU is 30-7. The teams are tied for the lead in the Southeastern Conference with 11-4 records. [Emphasis mine]
Looks to me like the SEC is making a name in baseball too. Tickets for the baseball game may be purchased at www.UKathletics.com or by calling 1-800-928-CATS (2287).
Below is the info for the Blue/white game which begins at 6pm ET (which is after Keeneland this year).
• Admission and parking are free on a first-come, first-served basis. (If you’ve never gotten to sit on the 50-yard line, here’s your chance!)
• The Red, Blue and Green parking lots open at 8 a.m. and fans are invited to tailgate.
• Stadium gates, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 open at 4:30 p.m.

If you choose to listen, Tom Leach will have the play-by-play on most regular Cat radio stations with pregame beginning at 5:30pm ET. Go 'Cats!
