Join UK Athletics for a Big Blue Weekend

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
 You better throw all your Kentucky gear in the laundry right now, because you're going to need every clean piece of blue clothing you can find.

This weekend, the UK campus will be buzzing with activity, highlighted by the Blue/White Spring Game at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday. But that's far from the only opportunity fans will have to cheer on the Wildcats this weekend. With upwards of 10 events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday across five different sports, it's going to be a Big Blue Weekend.

Let's take a look at your options (all times Eastern):

Friday, April 12 (Forecast: High of 55 degrees, 20 percent chance of rain)
4 p.m. - Women's tennis vs. No. 2 Florida (Boone Tennis Complex)
6 p.m. - Softball vs. No. 3 Florida (UK Softball Complex)
6:30 p.m. - Baseball vs. Tennessee (Cliff Hagan Stadium)

There's a fair bit of overlap here, but you can make it to doubles play and at least the start of singles at the tennis match before making a short trek north or south to baseball or softball.

Saturday, April 13 (Forecast: Sunny with a high of 57 degrees, zero percent chance of rain)
11:30 a.m. - UK Softball Complex grand opening
1 p.m. - Softball vs. No. 3 Florida (UK Softball Complex)
2 p.m. - Baseball vs. Tennessee (Cliff Hagan Stadium)
4 p.m. - Wildcat Refuge opens (Gate 9 of Commonwealth Stadium)
5 p.m. - Men's soccer spring game vs. Lipscomb (UK Soccer Complex)
5 p.m. - Alumni Association tailgate (Commonwealth Stadium Red Lot, near Gate 4)
5:15 p.m. - Cat Walk (Gate 1 of Commonwealth Stadium)
7 p.m. - Blue/White Spring Game (Commonwealth Stadium)

Does that give you enough to do on a Saturday?

No matter what, start your day at the grand opening of the UK Softball Complex at 11:30 a.m. Refreshments will be available and Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart and head coach Rachel Lawson will speak at the ceremony. From there, you can either stick around for the softball game, head to baseball or some combination of the two.

The baseball game still figures to be going on when pre-spring game festivities begin, but you should have plenty of time to tailgate and maybe even make it to the Cat Walk if you stick around for the end of the game at Cliff Hagan. Gates open at Commonwealth at 6 p.m.

All parking for the spring game is free. A portion of the Green Lot will be reserved, but the remainder is available on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, a shuttle will be available for those wishing to park at Commonwealth and receive transportation to Keeneland and back to the stadium. For complete information on the spring game, visit our Gameday Central page.

Spring game tickets have been distributed at a record rate, but seats are still available online.

Sunday, April 14 (Forecast: Mostly sunny with a high of 63 degrees, zero percent chance of rain)
Noon - Softball vs. No. 3 Florida (UK Softball Complex)
Noon - Women's tennis vs. No. 27 South Carolina (Boone Tennis Complex)
1 p.m. - Baseball vs. Tennessee (Cliff Hagan Stadium)

After a long Saturday, these three events offer a chance to relax outside on what is expected to be a warm, sunny day.
