EUGENE, Ore. --- The Oregon baseball and softball programs teamed up to host a combined fan day on Saturday evening inside the Moshofsky Center.

Fans had the opportunity to meet and interact with players and coaches from both programs for free. 

"We just want to let the people know we are in their community and we respect that. If we play hard and get their trust we would love to see them at PK Park," Oregon baseball coach Mark Wasikowski said. 

"It translates to the people that come out to the games. I mean when they're able to put a face to the people that are on the field it makes it that much more special when they come out to PK Park and watch us play and watch us win too," undergraduate assistant coach Marco Young said. 

Fan day offered season ticket holders for both sports the opportunity to pick up their tickets, while non-season ticket holders can purchase tickets to both baseball and softball.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to interact with our fans and the community to help kick off the season,” Oregon softball coach Melyssa Lombardi added. “It gives us a chance to strengthen the ties between our program and our community while bringing together the fan bases of both programs.”

Duck fans of all ages had the chance to take pictures and get autographs with their favorite players and coaches. 

"It's really cool that I'm able to say hi and have them sign my poster," duck fan Cara Lee said. 

Fans had the chance to play catch, wiffle ball and dance with them too.
