The Reno Aces and the University of Nevada Wolf Pack baseball team will play their annual exhibition game on Tuesday, April 5 at 6:05 p.m. at Aces Ballpark, the organizations announced today.
“As is the case every year since I have managed the Aces, I am really excited about our exhibition game against the Wolf Pack,” said Aces third-year manager Phil Nevin. “It's great for our players to prep for the season and it means Opening Day is near.”
“This year has even more meaning on a personal level with my good friend [Nevada Head Coach] T.J. Bruce leading the Pack now,” Nevin continued. “I can't wait for April 5 to arrive.”

The contest will mark the seventh consecutive season the two teams have played an exhibition game. Over that span, the Aces have donated $85,000 to the University of Nevada Dugout Club, the main fundraising body of the University of Nevada baseball team.
"We’re thrilled about the opportunity to play our annual exhibition game with the Reno Aces,” said Bruce. “[Aces President] Eric [Edelstein] and his staff run a first class organization. We’re thankful for this opportunity as our players have a chance to learn from the Aces and play at a professional ballpark as our student-athletes pursue their dreams of professional baseball. I’d like to thank the Aces for the support they continue to show for Wolf Pack baseball.”
As in previous seasons, the game will be played with Aces pitchers and catchers playing for both teams. All players will use wood bats, and the contest will last seven and a half innings. The game serves as a final tune-up for the Aces before opening the 2016 season on Thursday, April 7 at 6:35 p.m. vs. El Paso at Aces Ballpark.
