Do you like free candy, posters, and Easter egg hunts? If you enjoy said items and activities, then you’ll want to make your way out to brand new Beard Field this year for some Penn State softball.
On Wednesday, Penn State Marketing announced its promotional schedule for the 16 home games the softball team will have this season.
The home opener for the Lions (7-18) is a doubleheader next Tuesday, April 3 against the Pittsburgh Panthers, beginning a 10-game home stand at Beard Field.
In anticipation of all this free stuff, I’ve taken the liberty of ranking the top five giveaways and events the softball team will be promoting at their home games this year. And since no one can resist free stuff… here we go.
5. Saturday, April 7 vs. Michigan St.
Have you ever walked into the classroom about to take an essay test and realize you forgot a pen? Well if you come to the game against the Spartans you won’t need to worry about that. All attendees will receive free PSU softball pens, this way you don’t have to be that guy and you’ll always be prepared.
4. Wednesday, April 3 vs. Pitt
If your refrigerator is looking rather plain or your walls are looking barren then swing by to the doubleheader against the Panthers for a free softball poster and magnet. Also, a portion of all the tickets bought for the game will go to THON.
3. Sunday, April 15 vs. Indiana
Unless you are a child or play Merion Walker Little League you won’t be able to the run the bases after the contest. However, all fans will receive a free softball hats and some Lions will be available for post-game autographs.

Unable to get home for Easter? No problem, as Penn State softball
brings the Easter bunny to you with an Easter Egg Hunt and free candy after the Lions take on Sparty. And if you’re not too embarrassed, you can always take a snapshot with the Easter bunny.
1. Saturday, May 12 vs. Ohio State
This will certainly be a special day at Beard Field, not only because the Lions are taking on the Buckeyes, but because it will be the final regular season game of the year. While celebrating the careers of five softball seniors, the team will be promoting its Pitch for Pink Day. All attendees will be given pink wristbands and are encouraged to wear pink to the park in honor of the fight against breast cancer.
