URI Baseball Hosts Fourth Annual Autism Awareness Event

The Rhode Island baseball team will host its fourth annual Autism Awareness game on Saturday, April 30 when the Rams take on Atlantic 10 rival Temple at 1 p.m. All proceeds from the day will be donated to The Autism Project of Rhode Island and will benefit local children by providing new services and additional training for the teachers and professionals who care for individuals affected by Autism.

Festivities will begin at 11 a.m., with Cat Country (WCTK, 98.1 FM) on hand to provide music and activities for those in attendance. Inflatable obstacle courses, face painting and temporary tattoos will be available, as well as snacks and beverages. There will also be a silent auction with a number of item to bid upon.

As always, all kids will be invited onto the field after the game to meet and run the bases with the Rams.

This event would not be possible without the help of corporate sponsors. For more information on ways to get involved, please visit the baseball page on GoRhody.com.
