Baseball is coming to Dodger Stadium earlier than you think.
On the Sunday, March 8th they will be hosting a college Baseball tournament, recently redubbed the Dodger Stadium College Baseball Classic, and four powerhouses will be there to entertain (well, three powerhouses - snicker, sniker).
Defending champion Vanderbilt (#1) faces TCU (#7) at 11: 45AM and the 2013 College World Series Champion UCLA (#11) will play USC a 3:30 PM. Go here to purchase tickets.
Prices are cheap, so if you're aching for some competitive hardball on the diamond you cannot go wrong this. Tickets are $25 for Dugout Club seats, $20 for Baseline Club seats and $10 for Field level seats. Furthermore, USC and UCLA students and children under 14 years old can purchase $5 tickets either on that day at Dodger Stadium or in advance only at UCLA and USC box offices or at Dodger Stadium.
Per a press relase:
The event dates to 2010, when Vanderbilt edged Oklahoma State, 7-6, and UCLA defeated USC, 6-1. In 2011, Georgia blanked St. Mary’s, 3-0, and USC shut down UCLA, 2-0. In 2012, Pepperdine topped UC Irvine, 3-2, and UCLA downed USC, 7-2. Due to renovations at Dodger stadium, the 2013 games were played at UCLA’s Jackie Robinson Stadium, where Notre Dame trimmed Oklahoma, 6-5, in 11 innings, and UCLA beat USC, 6-1. The event did not take place in 2014.
