Big Turnout Greets Rockets for Fan Appreciation Day
TOLEDO - A large crowd of Rocket fans turned out to meet their team at the annual Fan Appreciation Day on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the Glass Bowl.
Fans watched the second half of practice, then met the team for autographs and photos under the West Concourse. A line estimated at between 300-400 fans snaked out of the concourse and into the bleachers. All fans received free posters and schedule cards.
"It was great to see such a big turnout from our fans today," said head coach Matt Campbell. "We're very excited about this season, and I can tell our fans are, too."
The Rockets open their 2013 season in two seeks at No. 10 Florida on Aug. 31. Following another road contest at Missouri on Sept. 7, Toledo opens its home season vs. Eastern Washington on Sept. 14. Season tickets are still available, including the Ultimate Fan Plan for just $65. Call 419-530-4653 or go online at UTRockets.com.
