Thursday, October 10, 2013

The Chattanooga Lady Mocs softball team announced its Blue & Gold Game rosters Thursday afternoon for its 11 a.m. Saturday inter-squad matchup at Frost Stadium. The matchup will feature two split-squad teams along with the pitchers serving as a third, all-time-pitcher team. Admission is and a free picnic sponsored by the Lady Moc RBI Club will immediately follow outside the stadium behind the first base line after the game.

“Blue and Gold weekend is always fun,” Head Coach Frank Reed said. “We always have it the weekend of Homecoming and we always have a great turnout. It’s great to incorporate the softball game into the Homecoming festivities, giving fans a chance to come watch some softball and eat before going over to Finley for the football game.”

Ten Lady Mocs have been assigned to each team while Chattanooga’s four pitchers will wear white uniforms and will not step into the batter’s box.
