OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss softball team will be giving back in its home opener Feb. 13 against LSU. The Rebels will be facing the Tigers in a non-conference setting as a part of the Geaux Play program established by former LSU All-American Brittany Mack.
With the Geaux Play program, Ole Miss is asking fans to donate any new or gently used sports equipment. From softballs to gloves, to tennis balls, footballs and basketballs, all sports equipment can be donated. Donation boxes will be set up at the Gillom Sports Center and in the main entrance at the Athletics Administration Building on campus. Those who donate sports equipment at the game will receive two free tickets to the baseball home opener vs. TCU on Feb. 15 at 4 p.m. CT.
"We're very excited to be a part of the Geaux Play program this year," Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. "It's a wonderful organization and event started by Brittany Mack, and I'm really proud to be a part of such a great charity started by a young softball graduate. We're thrilled to be able to participate in it this year."
Geaux Play is a non-profit organization designed to help encourage mentally and physically disabled children to be physically active and to participate in sports.
