ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan softball team will play host the NPF Back To School Tour on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 6 p.m. at the Wilpon Complex, home of Alumni Field.
Former Wolverine and current volunteer coach Nikki Nemitz will start in the circle for the NPF team, which has gone 41-1 in two years on the tour. Admission to the game is $8 and seating will be general admission. Tickets can be purchased online.
"We are looking forward to the opportunity to play a marquee game during our fall season," head coach Carol Hutchins said. "This is a great opportunity for the fans to get a glimpse of the new team and helps our freshmen get used to playing in a big game collegiate atmosphere. We would love a packed house for this game."
Following the contest, both teams will hold a meet-and-greet session in Oosterbaan Fieldhouse, allowing fans an opportunity for autographs and photos.
Michigan women's basketball head coach Kim Barnes Arico will throw out the first pitch prior to the contest.
U-M returns 15 letterwinners from last year's team, which won its fifth consecutive Big Ten championship and advanced to Super Regional action in the NCAA Tournament.
