AZUSA, Calif. -- The Azusa Pacific baseball program has scheduled a 7-inning exhibition game with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the Advanced A California League affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The game will be played Wednesday, April 4, at 6:05 p.m. at The Epicenter in Rancho Cucamonga.

“This is a great opportunity for our guys to play some high-level competition in a first-class facility,” said Cougar head coach Paul Svagdis. “We’re excited to give the Quakes a competitive game as they prepare for their season, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to showcase Azusa Pacific to the local community.”

Tickets to the event are $5 each, and they can be purchased on the Azusa Pacific campus at the Felix Event Center ticket office, at the Alumni House or at Cougars’ home baseball games.

Ticket proceeds benefit the Azusa Pacific baseball program, which started the 2007 campaign in record fashion, winning its first 10 games for the first time in the 42-year history of the baseball program. The Cougars are currently 14-1 overall and tied for first in GSAC play with a 7-1 record.

Two years ago, Azusa Pacific took an early lead over the Quakes, only to see the pro prospects come back for the 3-2 win.

The Epicenter is located at 8408 Rochester Ave., Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730. Click here for directions to the stadium. Stadium parking for the exhibition game will be $2 per vehicle, and gates will open at 5:05 p.m. The Quakes Team Store, concession stands and the Fun Zone will be open during the game.
