Join Huskie Football Coaches at Kane County Cougars' Game July 26
June 6, 2012
DeKALB, Ill. - Northern Illinois head football coach Dave Doeren invites Huskie fans to join him and members of his coaching staff at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva on Thursday, July 26, as the Kane County Cougars, the Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
Doeren and his assistant coaches will visit with fans and talk Huskie Football while enjoying the game, food and drink from the comforts of the Hyundai Deck above the first base line. A limited number of tickets are available for this event for $75 each with proceeds directly benefitting the NIU football program.
The Huskies' second year head coach will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the game, which gets underway at 6:30 p.m., with gates open at 5:30 p.m. The stadium is located just south of the intersection of Rt. 38 and Kirk Rd. in Geneva, Ill.
In addition to Doeren's pregame appearance, it is 90's Night. There will be a pre-game concert by 9D Rox and a post-game fireworks show featuring music from the decade.
"I hope a lot of Huskie fans will join us at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva on July 26th," Doeren said. "It's a great way to support Northern Illinois football while enjoying a terrific minor league baseball experience right in our backyard. Our staff is looking forward to a fun night at the ballpark."
