Union To Play Diamond Jaxx at Pringles Park

Jackson, TNóOn Monday, April 2, the Bulldogs will play an exhibition game against the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx at 2:05 PM. All seating is General Admission and will be available at the gate on April 2 only. The tickets will be $2 each and the Diamond Jaxx will give all proceeds to the family of Bill Rasbach.

This will be the first time Union has played an exhibition since 1970 when the Bulldogs played the Baltimore Orioles. Baltimore won the game 1-0 off a Boog Powell homerun.
