RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics unveiled on Wednesday options for fans with season tickets for baseball home games that were canceled due to concerns about the safety of student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
A total of 16 home games will not be played due to the cancelations. For season ticket holders that paid $125 for 29 games, that leaves a balance of $69. Season ticket holders can choose to either donate the balance to the V Club, receive a credit that is good toward 2021 baseball season tickets or receive a refund.
Suite and corral holders, who also made donations to the V Club as part of their purchases, will receive credits of 50 percent toward their 2021 donations.
Questions regarding tickets should be directed to the UTRGV Fan Relationship Management Center team of Carlos Munoz and Tiffany Ochoa at [email protected].
Questions regarding V Club donations should be directed to UTRGV Assistant Athletic Director for Development Rogelio Chanes at [email protected].
The Vaqueros ended their season on an eight-game winning streak with an 11-7 record. The Vaqueros went 10-3 at home while averaging 1,087 fans per game, the program’s best mark in more than a decade.
