SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UCSB Athletics is happy to announce that it will be offering free tickets to local educators for this weekend's Big West Conference home softball series against UC Davis in honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week.

All educators have the opportunity to attend the three-game series at Campus Diamond free of charge. The Gauchos and Aggies will begin the series with a doubleheader at noon on Saturday, May 1 and conclude the set with a single noon game on Sunday.

If you are an educator - teacher or administrator - at any local Santa Barbara County elementary school or middle school, game vouchers have already been sent to your institutions and should be available for pick-up at your place of work.

All high school educators interested in this offer should contact the Athletics Ticket Office at 893-UCSB or stop by the Ticket Office located inside the Intercollegiate Athletics building on campus by 4 p.m. on Friday.

This week's free ticket offer is part of the Gauchos Give community outreach initiative for all 450 athletes and 20 sports. Gaucho athletes give back to their community through free clinics, helping families during the holidays, providing financial and emotional support during tragedies, and touching the lives of youth groups.

Getting to UCSB softball games is easy! From Highway 217, veer right at Steck Circle onto Mesa Road, and take a left onto Stadium Road. Campus Diamond is on your left just past the lacrosse field, and you can park at Lot 30, which is right outside the stadium. There are two kiosks that accept cash and credit card to pay for parking.
