WICHITA, Kansas – The Wichita State softball team will be hosting its second annual Retinal Blindness Awareness Game on Saturday, April 16 against Bradley.
Game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off during first game of the double-header. The auction will end after the last inning of the first game.
Special edition blue t-shirts will be sold for $5 throughout the entirety of both games. Proceeds will go to the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation.
“Retinal Blindness is a rare disease with very little funding to find a cure,” head coach Kristi Bredbenner said. “Shocker Softball is excited to team up with the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation for the second year in a row. We hope to educate our fans and the Wichita community about CRB1 and help find a cure.”
All health care professionals will receive free admission to Saturday’s games.
Along with the Retinal Blindness Awareness game, this weekend is also Kid’s Weekend. All youth 12 and under will receive free admission all weekend and have the opportunity to get a softball poster signed by all of the Shocker softball players at the conclusion of the weekend.
