On Sunday, Feb. 21, TCU baseball went face-to-face against Loyola Marymount, and 50 veterans and their families were able to attend the event for free.

The public relations team at Texas Christian University, known as Lila PR, is “a group of students dedicated to raising awareness for the student veterans on TCU’s campus and the Fort Worth community.” This group held an all-day event on Sunday to benefit the veterans’ community.

Two daughters of two student veterans threw out the first pitch: “1o-year-old Lily Howe, daughter of U.S. Army veteran William Howe, and 9-year-old Llanah Gonzalez, daughter of U.S. Marine Corps veteran Steven Gonzalez.”

In addition, 50 tickets to the TCU baseball were set aside so that these veterans and their families could attend the events for free. Included in the event, also, was a tailgate before the game.

What could possibly make a day like that even better? A Horned Frog victory over Loyola Marymount, of course, and TCU baseball came away with a 5-0 victory.
