Tickets are available for the Northern Illinois baseball contest against Northwestern at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 1, at Elfstrom Stadium, home of the Kane County Cougars.

The Huskies will celebrate Faculty-Staff Appreciation Day during the ball game.

Tickets can be purchased at the gate or by contacting Cliff Bottigliero at (815) 753-1292 or [email protected] of the NIU Sales Office.

Adult tickets are $5 while children age 14 and younger can get in for $3. All NIU and high school students will be admitted for free with a valid student ID. Baseball alumni are also invited to attend the pig roast hosted by alum Roger Dutton.

Northern Illinois faculty and staff receive up to four complimentary tickets by bringing a printed version of the email they received April 16 to the game.

Parking is free at the stadium and limited concessions will be available for purchase. Gates will open an hour before first pitch (5:30 p.m.).

The game will mark the sixth for NIU at the home of the Kansas City Royals Low-A affiliate. The Huskies are a perfect 5-0 all-time at Elfstrom Stadium and have taken down the likes of Northwestern (twice), Illinois-Chicago (twice) and Eastern Illinois in Geneva, Ill.

Since 2005, NIU has appeared in the stadium every year except 2009 and 2011. Last season’s game versus UW-Milwaukee was cancelled due to poor weather and field conditions.

Fans who are unable to make the game can watch online at as the game will be streamed free of charge on Huskie All-Access.

Elfstrom Stadium is located in the Kane County Events Center, just south of the intersection of Roosevelt Rd. (Rt. 38) and Kirk Rd. on the East side of Geneva.
