How can I get a ticket package for the 2018 University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars baseball season?

University of Houston-Victoria Athletics always is looking for ways to connect with the Victoria community, and we have a 2018 baseball season ticket package on sale now to make that possible.

Baseball season is almost in full swing, and UHV athletics wants to ensure its fans are prepared to come out to Riverside Stadium and support their hometown team. With season tickets to the Jaguars home games, fans will be able to do just that.

Season tickets are on sale now for $99. The season package includes entry into all 26 home games, reserved seating and discounts on food and drinks to enjoy during the games. Also included in the package is a free general admission ticket to bring a friend to another home game if a game is canceled due to weather delays or another reason. Children will get in free with a paid adult.

The first home games of the season began Friday in a planned three-game series against the Trinity University Tigers. The third game, which had been set for Sunday, was canceled because of cold weather. Free T-shirts were also given out.

This season, fans can watch returning players Ross Bludau and Chase Almendarez lead the Jaguars in four home Red River Conference games with opponent teams from LSU-Shreveport, University of the Southwest, LSU-Alexandria and Texas A&M-Texarkana.
