The Gators hold three open practices this week ahead of Friday’s exhibition vs. Georgia.
Tickets are currently on sale for the 6:30 p.m. scrimmage vs. Georgia on Friday, Oct. 27, which includes a postgame 90’s-themed afterparty concert featuring Vanilla Ice, Young MC, Montell Jordan and Tone Loc. This year’s meeting on the diamond marks the third-straight year of fall competition between the Gators and Bulldogs and the fourth matchup in the last five autumns (2019, 2021-23). As the home team in 2023, Florida will occupy the first-base dugout and look to add its third victory in the series after coming out on top in 2019 and 2022.
Shifting gears to Condron Family Ballpark, the Orange & Blue is set to scrimmage on Tuesday and Thursday at approximately 4:30 p.m each day. The team is off on Monday and there is no scrimmage scheduled for Wednesday’s practice.
All fall practices and scrimmages are open to the public. Fans can access the concourse through Gate 3 of Condron Family Ballpark (located directly behind home plate).
