IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa baseball team announced it will play an exhibition game against the Iowa Cubs on April 4, 2006, at Principal Park in Des Moines. Gametime is set for 7:05 p.m.
The Hawkeyes and Iowa Cubs, the AAA minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, played an exhibition game on April 7, 2004, with 4,173 fans watching the I-Cubs win 4-2.
“It’s great to have another exhibition with the I-Cubs on our schedule,” Iowa Head Coach Jack Dahm said. “The last game we played at Principal Park was a rousing success, and we hope to have even more people come out to this one. Games like this are great for our program because we not only get the experience of going head-to-head with some of the finest ballplayers in the nation, but it gives Hawkeye fans in central Iowa a chance to see the team.”
