Revenue generated from ticket sales during this weekend's series with Boston College will be donated to The One Fund Boston, a fund set up to assist families affected by Monday's bombing at the Boston Marathon. Per the official release from Wake Forest, Ron Wellman had the following to say about the initiative:
"In light of the tragic events in Boston on Monday, the Wake Forest baseball team and coaching staff felt that it would be appropriate to donate all the proceeds from this weekend's series with Boston College to The One Fund Boston. All of us connected with Wake Forest athletics extend our support for those affected by this tragedy."
The One Fund Boston was set up this week by Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino in response to Monday's tragic events, which killed three and injured upwards of 180 people. In addition to the ticket proceeds, Wake Forest will have staffers on hand to collect individual donations, should any patrons in attendance wish to do so.
The first game of the series will take place on Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. Saturday's game will begin at 4:00 p.m., while Sunday's series finale will be played at 1:00 p.m.
All games will be played at Wake Forest Baseball Park, located beside BB&T Field.
