KINGSTON, R.I. - The Rhode Island baseball team is pleased to announce its sixth annual fundraising raffle, giving the winner his/her choice of a $10,000 cash prize a pair of season tickets for the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
The raffle - which runs through March 20, 2014 - is a significant fundraiser for the Rhody baseball team as all proceeds go directly back to the program to help offset the costs of travel, equipment and facility enhancements.
Under the direction of Rhody head coach Jim Foster, URI has traveled to take on nine different teams that have competed in the last three NCAA College World Series - California, Florida, Florida State, Mississippi State, NC State, South Carolina, Stony Brook, Vanderbilt and Virginia. As a result, Rhode Island has had the Atlantic 10's best RPI in two of the last five seasons.
At home, the Rams have continued to develop Bill Beck Field into one of the area's best baseball facilities. Following the complete resurfacing of the field in 2009, URI most recently added a 5,000-square-foot indoor hitting barn along the right field line, giving the Rams year-round access to three batting cages.
With the next phase of developments, Rhode Island will look to add a new press box, grandstand and luxury seating as well as stadium lights.
