Men's Ice Hockey Charity Softball Game Scheduled For Saturday Postponed Due To RainThe Quinnipiac University men's ice hockey team's charity softball game to benefit "Autism Speaks", originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12 at 6 p.m., has been postponed until Sunday, Sept. 13 at 6 p.m. Heavy rainfall in Hamden, Conn. has forced the game between the Bobcats and the Hamden Police Benevolent Association at the Hamden High School to be pushed back. The even is part of the Quinnipiac University Athletics Positive Play Community Outreach. Quinnipiac will also host several youth hockey organizations on Sunday, Oct. 4 for its exhibition game against University of Prince Edward Island at the TD Bank Sports Center in Hamden, Conn.
The softball game will be free to the public with donations welcome. In addition to funds collected at the point of entry, Quinnipiac and the Hamden PBA will be holding a raffle featuring commemorative softball jerseys, autographed sticks, t-shirts, hats and limited edition fleece outerwear. Tickets for the area's top college hockey action at the TD Bank Sports Center will also be up for grabs.
On Oct. 4, youth ice hockey teams from the surrounding area will have an opportunity to see the Bobcats' first on-ice competition of the 2009-10 season when they take on Prince Edward Island. The youth players will also be able to skate with the team following the game as part of a "Skate With The Bobcats" event. In addition, the youth teams will have an opportunity to face-off in a series of mini-games on the Bobcats' home ice, a first in Quinnipiac history.
