Love bicycles and baseball? Or maybe you’re just looking for cheap family fun? Don’t miss this event on May 10!
Bring the whole family for a day of fun at the ballpark. The KU Alumni trailer will be parked along the first base line at Hoglund Ballpark, and staff will be serving free hot dogs, chips, cookies, water and soda.
The Family Fun Zone will be set up from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. with several inflatables for the kids, plus a balloon artist, face painting and more. Members of our Future Jayhawks program can stop by our table and pick up a special gift!
If you have a bicycle-riding Jayhawk, make sure to stop by the helmet fair. The popular event is typically held before the spring football game, but this year you’ll find the fair near the Jayhawk Soccer Complex.
Pick up a free bike helmet for the kids, or bring one from home—safety experts will be on hand to make sure the helmets fit properly. Kids can also bring their bikes for free inspections and ride on a safe course. The helmet fair is also open from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
Baseball and softball games
The KU baseball and softball teams both have games at 2 p.m.
The softball team will celebrate Senior Day with a game against Iowa State. Bring your grandparents; senior citizens can buy tickets for just $3.
The baseball game against West Virginia is the “Jayhawks for a Cure” game, with $3 admission for anyone wearing pink. Pink pom poms will be available while supplies last.
Kids ages four and under are admitted to the games free!
