The Houston Autism Group and the Starlight Brigade offers a night of Rice baseball, a chance to educate the public about Autism and raise funds for Houston Autism. The game will be the Rice Owls versus Harvard on Friday, March 15 at 6:30 p.m.
At the Autism Awareness Night, families who have purchased the tickets will be able to get into the game 45 minutes early so that they can find their seats and avoid the normal lines. Children will also be given the option to wear earplugs or sound silencers during the game, and special food due to dietary restrictions will be allowed in the stadium. In addition, the children will get a “special invite” from the Rice players before the game.
At 100 tickets sold for the game, one of the children will get to announce “play ball” at the start of the game.
At 400 tickets, children will get the opportunity to meet players, take pictures, and walk the bases.
At 1,000 tickets, the group will receive a signed base from the Rice Baseball team.
Tickets cost $12 each, and $4 of each ticket price will be donated to the organization.
Tickets go on sale on February 1, and a flyer can be downloaded at
