Giveback Event - Texas vs Baylor Baseball Game

Scott Ruprecht - Tuesday, May 31, 2016

 

*Make Your Tickets Mean More - On every sports ticket or travel package you buy, a portion of our profits gives kids a chance to experience games like you do. Kids who otherwise can't do it on their own.

On Saturday May 21st, 7 students from Gus Garcia Leadership Academy and 2 from The Rise Up Program in Austin attended the Texas Longhorns vs Baylor Bears baseball game with us.

It was our kick-off event for Giveback Sports and the launch of our giving program. It could not have gone any better!

The kids had a blast at their first game. Prior to the game everyone received a private tour of the Moncrief-Neuhaus Athletic Center.  They were able to see the Heisman Trophies of former Longhorn Stars Earl Campbell, Ricky Williams, The National Championship Trophies and more!

In the middle of the 6th inning one of our kids was able to stand on the University of Texas dugout and call out a reply to the crowd. He did an amazing job and UT gave him a Longhorns t-shirt, iTunes and Nike Gift card.

What a thrill for this young man.

Giveback Sports also arranged with The University of Texas for the kids to run the bases and toss a baseball around in the outfield after the game. The Longhorns defeated Baylor with a win in their last game of the season. Hook ‘em!

A special thank you to Cisco Garcia and Jordan Chaplik from Gus Garcia Young Men’s Leadership Academy and Gil Parra from The University of Texas for working with us on this special event.

“Thank you again for today!! The boys had an awesome time. On the way out of the game they were all saying how great it felt to have something to do over the weekend so we really appreciate Giveback Sports and their mission.” - Jordan Chaplik, Gus Garcia Leadership Academy
