GOODWELL, Okla. – Oklahoma Panhandle State University Head Baseball Coach Shawn Joy has announced that his team will host a February 20-21 weekend series versus the University of the Southwest in Amarillo, Texas at Hodgetown Stadium. The Aggies will play noon doubleheaders each day versus the Mustangs, at the home of the minor league Amarillo Sod Poodles, and also host a special event open to all Panhandle State Alumni at Sunday's games.
Admission will be free of charge both days for all fans.
"We have many OPSU alums who live in or around Amarillo and this is a great way to get them all together," Joy said. "Playing at a first-class professional stadium will be a great experience for our players and fans. Aggie Nation is a special group of people and we want to get them all together and have some fun"
Hodgetown Stadium is located in the heart of downtown Amarillo and opened on April 8, 2019 as the newest sports and entertainment destination in Amarillo, with state-of-the-art facilities and an unprecedented commitment to quality and service. It features a full range of programming that includes professional and affiliated baseball as well as events like high school and college games, concerts, themed events, and much more. The venue plays host and brings guests from all around the nation to downtown Amarillo annually.
The facility is named in honor of Jerry Hodge, who spearheaded the effort along with other community leaders to bring affiliated, professional baseball back to Amarillo. Jerry is a family-man, pharmacist, businessman, civic leader, philanthropist, and long-time Amarillo resident that has made an amazing impact in the Amarillo community over the past 50 years.
While admission is free to all, OPSU alumni – and their families – who are interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Panhandle State's Alumni Office at opsu.alumni@opsu.edu, or by calling 580-349-1390. Food and beverages will be served for Alumni at the Stadium's Clubroom Suite.
