K-State baseball season ticket priority deadline this Friday
With the 2017 K-State baseball season just a little over 30 days away, the priority deadline for season tickets to the 33 home games at Tointon Family Stadium is set for Friday, Jan. 20.
Fans who purchase by the priority deadline will be entered to win prizes such as a K-State baseball signed poster, a baseball signed by Coach Hill and a chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch.
For the fourth straight season, season ticket prices are unchanged as packages start at less than $2 per game. Cat Cushion seats, located down the first- and third-base lines, are $100 for adults, $75 for K-State faculty and staff, and $50 for those who purchase four or more.
Chairback seats, situated between the dugouts behind home plate, start at $100 when purchasing four or more. Adult chairback season tickets are $150 while faculty and staff are $125.
Purchase season tickets online, call 1-800-221-CATS (2287) or stop by the K-State Athletics Ticket Office in Bramlage Coliseum.
The slate of home games at Tointon Family Stadium features 14 different teams, including regional opponents Creighton, Eastern Illinois, Iowa, Omaha, Nebraska and Wichita State as well as Big 12 foes Oklahoma, TCU, Texas Tech and West Virginia.
The home opener is Friday, March 3, against Eastern Illinois and begins a stretch of 14 consecutive home games in the month of March. The Wildcats will play 16 out of 17 games at Tointon Family Stadium spanning from April 11-May 7. The 33 home games are the most since the 2013 season.
The Wildcats have ranked in the nation's top-32 in attendance in each of the last four seasons, with the 2014 (first) and 2015 (second) total and average attendance figures being the highest in program history. In 2-15, K-State averaged 2,631 fans at its 25 home games, the 28th-best clip in Division I.
The Wildcats finished 2015 with a 26-31 record and made their ninth trip in 10 seasons to the Big 12 Baseball Championship. The squad returns 15 letterwinners, led by All-Big 12 selections Jake Scudder and Josh Rolette. Scudder was named 2016 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year and is part of the Wildcats' nine-man senior class.
