TCU students reserve 50 tickets so veteran families can watch baseball for free

A group of TCU students hopes to make Sunday's baseball game extra special for student veterans and their families.

Thanks to a public relations team run by TCU students, 50 tickets to Sunday's baseball game have been set aside just for the families of veterans who study at TCU.

The public relations team, Lila PR, is a group of students dedicated to raising awareness for the student veterans on TCU's campus and the Fort Worth community. The group put together a whole shindig for Sunday's contest against Loyola Marymount, which includes a veterans tailgate at 10:30 a.m. before the game at 11:30 a.m.

Then at the game, the daughters of two student veterans will be throwing the first pitch: 10-year-old Lily Howe, daughter of U.S. Army veteran William Howe, and 9-year-old Llanah Gonzalez, daughter of U.S. Marine Corps veteran Steven Gonzalez.

Now all that's needed is for the Horned Frogs to top off the day with a series win!

More info on Lila PR can be found on Facebook (search "Lila Public Relations") and Instagram.

The group did a similar event at TCU's rugby game on Saturday.
