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.
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.

Faculty, staff, alumni and University friends can purchase game tickets in advance through the Department of University Development and Alumni Relations. Ticket price for terrace seats is $35; grandstand-level seats cost $19. The roundtrip ride on the Vulcan Flyer bus is $11.
In addition, Atria’s restaurant will cater a Cal U Alumni & Friends pre-game “tailgate” event from 5:30-6:45 p.m. at the Cal U booth on Federal Street. Cost is $25 per person.
Registration is required. For tickets, contact Daphne Livingstone at 724-938-5467 or e-mail email@example.com. Credit card information will not be taken via e-mail; checks should be made payable to “California University of Pennsylvania.”
Support scholarships, enter a drawing
In addition to the ticket price, participants are encouraged to make a donation to the Cal U Scholarship Fund. Anyone who gives at least $25 to the scholarship fund will have his or her name placed in a drawing; one lucky winner will change the bases during the third and sixth innings of the game. 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. Cal U Alumni & Friends gatherings have been held in conjunction with Pirates games in Bradenton, Fla., Baltimore and New York City, and upcoming events are scheduled for away games at Philadelphia and Atlanta.
