NORFOLK, VA - For the second year in a row, Old Dominion Baseball is partnering with the Norfolk SPCA to host "Bark in the Park" night at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex. On April 18th, the Baseball Monarchs will host the UTSA Roadrunners and fans can bring their dogs into the game for the only time this season. A special area in Rally Alley will be reserved for pets and their owners.

There will be an ODU travel dog bowl give-a-way for the first 250 fans in attendance and the Norfolk SPCA will be on hand with adoptable pets and treats. Canine games and a "doggie activities area" will also be available in Rally Alley to entertain all the four-legged guests in attendance.

"Our baseball team is excited to partner with such a worthwhile organization as the Norfolk SPCA," said ODU Head Baseball Coach Chris Finwood. "As a dog owner myself, I'm glad we can play a game to benefit the SPCA and create a fun-filled environment at the Bud for our fans. Last year's game was such a huge success and the team enjoyed seeing the more than 200 dogs at the game. We're looking forward to even more this year."

Fans can bring donations for the SPCA and receive a $2 discount off a ticket to the game. Tickets are $5 at the gate or purchase an ODU Baseball season voucher book for only $50 and receive 32 admissions vouchers, good for any game. Donations accepted will be canned pet food, bleach, paper towels, cat litter and detergent, while cash donations will not be accepted.
