Reporter- Kayla Anderson, Sports Anchor
TUCSON (UA Athletics) - Over 500 fans turned out on a gorgeous early spring afternoon for the Arizona Baseball Meet the Team Day held on Saturday at Hi Corbett Field. Wildcat players and coaches signed autographs on the field for fans following an eight-inning intrasquad scrimmage.
With teams split into red and blue squads, the Arizona Blue edged the Arizona Red, 3-1. Junior James pitched the first four innings for the Red, while junior Konner Wade tossed the first four innings for the Blue.
The event comes just under two weeks from the official start of the 2013 season. The Wildcats host Coppin State in a three-game series beginning on Feb. 15 to kick off a 38-game home slate.
The season-opener against Coppin State on Feb. 15 will be highlighted by a special National Championship Recognition Night. The first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative 2012 national championship rally towel and there will be a postgame fireworks show. Select stars from the championship team will be on hand for a pregame autograph session. They will also throw out the first pitch for the 6 p.m. game.
