PULASKI, Va. -- In preparing for their 2012 season, the Pulaski Mariners are slated to take on the Mooresville All Americans in a seven-inning Sunday afternoon exhibition game at historic Calfee Park. First pitch is at 4 p.m. and in recognition of Father's Day, all fathers will get into the ballpark for free.

All other fans can enjoy open seating inside Calfee Park for an admission of $2.00, while regular season box suite holders will be entitled to their designated suite. All proceeds from admission will be donated to the Second Chance Learning Center, a non-profit foundation co-founded by former Major League standout relief pitcher Billy Wagner.

"We're excited to have the All Americans up in Pulaski for Father's Day," said general manager Abby Lyman. "This will be a perfect opportunity for Mariner fans to preview our new players and raise money for a great cause."

The All Americans, a summer collegiate baseball team, belong to the Carolina-Virginia Collegiate League. This is first time that the team will square off against the Mariners. Gates into the ballpark on Sunday will open at 3 p.m. Mariner's regular season baseball will kickoff on June 19, at 7 p.m. against the Burlington Royals. The Calfee Park gates will open at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by calling the ballpark at 540-980-1070.
