The 41st Annual Groundhog Day Luncheon is set for 11:30 Tuesday morning, February 4th in MTSU's Murphy Center.
It won't matter whether Raider sees his shadow or not, the Railbirds are ready for the baseball season to start.
Head coach Jim McGuire and the Middle Tennessee baseball team will host the event to kick off the 2014 inaugural Conference USA baseball campaign. The luncheon will have its traditional menu of ham hocks, white beans, tomato salad, green onions, corn bread, chocolate cake and ice cream.
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Additionally, a table of 10 can be reserved for $250. Reservations can be made by calling the Blue Raider ticket office at (615) 898-5261. The deadline to pre-order tickets is Jan. 31.
The Blue Raiders open the 2014 home slate against Tennessee Tech on Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 3 p.m., before hosting Dayton, Miami (Ohio) and Indiana State for the Mule Mix Classic Feb. 21-23. Season and single-game tickets are also now on sale through the Blue Raider ticket office, located at Gate 1A of Floyd Stadium.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
