Coach Bielema to Attend Game to Benefit Tornado Victims

The head coach of the Arkansas Razorback football team will make a special appearance at Tuesday's benefit baseball game at Dickey-Stephens Park.
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The Mayflower Eagles and Vilonia Eagles varsity baseball teams will play in a game at Dickey-Stephens Park on May 6 with all proceeds benefiting the cities of Mayflower and Vilonia as they rebuild from this week's devastating storm.

The University of Arkansas athletics departments announced head football coach Bret Bielema would be making an appearance at the game along with 2014 NFL Draft prospect Travis Swanson. Bielema will address both the Mayflower and Vilonia teams prior to the game.

Admission to the game will be free, but donations will be collected by each high school's cheerleading squads and all proceeds from concession sales will go directly to those affected. Gates will open at 4:30 and first pitch is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Dickey-Stephens Park, the home of the Arkansas Travelers.

Both mayors, James Firestone of Vilonia and Randy Holland of Mayflower, will be present to host a moment of silence for their citizens and throw out the ceremonial first pitches.

The game will last seven innings and concessions will be available serving hot dogs, fountain drinks and peanuts. Local representatives from Centennial Bank and First Security Bank will be present to account for the donations and distribute them to each city official.
