The game will serve as the final tune-up for the Aces before the much-anticipated April 8 Opening Day at Aces Ballpark, while Nevada’s student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete against some of professional baseball’s top prospects at the Triple-A level.

Through the partnership, a portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated directly to the University of Nevada’s Dugout Club, which benefits the Wolf Pack baseball program.

The game will be played in an exhibition format, with Aces pitchers and catchers playing for both squads. All players will use wood bats, and the contest will last between seven and nine innings, depending on the status of the Aces pitching staff. Utilizing the traditional Minor League Spring Training format, pitchers will be placed on a pitch count, and should a pitcher reach his limit, the game will immediately proceed to the next half inning.

Reno begins its 2010 regular season on April 8. Single-game tickets, season tickets and group outings are all available now. Call (775) 334-4700 or visit www.RenoAces.com for more information.
