Cal U Night at PNC Park - September 12

Pregame activities will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Federal Street, where fans can stop at a Cal U booth outside the center field entrance, near the Clemente Bridge.

As part of the Pirates’ Free T-Shirt Friday promotion, the first 25,000 fans to enter the ballpark will receive complimentary T-shirts with the Cal U logo.

Fans from Cal U can ride to the game in a Vulcan Flyer bus, which will depart at 3:30 p.m. from the Manderino Library’s front entrance. The bus will return fans to campus after the game.

Student tickets
Any current Cal U student with a valid CalCard can make the roundtrip ride on the Vulcan Flyer and receive a grandstand-level ticket for just $5. Students must register in advance by contacting Melissa Dunn.

Support scholarships, enter a drawing

A member of the Cal U community also will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Alumni & Friends
The Sept. 12 Cal U Night at PNC Park continues a season-long relationship between the University and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
