Priority Deadline Approaches for Season Tickets

MANHATTAN, Kan. - The 2015 K-State baseball season is four weeks away, and with the home opener slated soon after for the end of February, fans are encouraged to purchase their season tickets for the 29-game home schedule before the Priority Deadline on Friday, January 23 to guarantee their desired seats.

Fans have already supported K-State baseball this year by purchasing the second-most number of season tickets in program history, trailing only last year's record number of more than 1,000.

Those who purchase by January 23 will be eligible for a drawing, with special items up for grabs including an autographed baseball by head coach Brad Hill, a K-State Baseball fleece blanket, and an opportunity to throw out the first pitch at a select game. Ordering by the Priority Deadline also allows fans to use their athletic department priority points for location upgrades and additional tickets.

Several season ticket options are available and start as low as around $2 per game. Cat Cushion tickets are available for $100 for adults, $75 for K-State faculty and staff, and $50 for those that purchase four or more. Chairback seats are also available, starting at $100 each when purchasing four or more. Single tickets for adults in the chairback sections are $150 while faculty and staff are $125.

Fans can purchase season tickets several ways, including by clicking here, calling 1-800-221-CATS (2287) or stopping by the K-State Athletics Ticket Office in Bramlage Coliseum.

The K-State baseball team will be in attendance during this Saturday's basketball doubleheader in Bramlage. Wildcat fans will have the opportunity to meet the entire team and Coach Hill at an autograph session before the men's 2 pm game. A select group of players will also sign autographs before the women's 7 pm contest against Iowa State. The meet-and-greets will begin when gates open one hour before tip-off and held outside the Legend's Room on the north side of the concourse.

K-State has reported back to campus in preparation for the 2015 campaign and will open its first official team practices on January 23. The Wildcats start the season in Port Charlotte, Florida for the Snowbird Classic. K-State, which has not played in the state of Florida since 2010, will take on Iowa in the season opener on Friday, February 13.

The home opener at Tointon Family Stadium is set for Friday, February 27 against Eastern Illinois, kicking off a three-game series against the Panthers and an 11-game homestand for the Wildcats. Tointon Family Stadium saw a record number of fans attend games in 2014, with a total of 69,998 watching K-State go 16-9 at home.
