WACO, Texas -
The Baylor Athletic Department will host its annual "Meet the Bears" football fan appreciation event on Saturday, Aug. 9. The 2014 event will again be held in the Allison Indoor Practice Facility at the Highers Athletics Complex on University Parks Drive in Waco.
The start time of the event will be released at a later date. However, fans are encouraged to watch a BU practice and then get autographs of their favorite players and coaches. The autograph table presented by GuideStone Funds will be setup in the indoor facility following the scrimmage on the practice field.
Inflatables will again be in the Allison Indoor Facility for the children to enjoy, while complimentary 2014 schedule posters and schedule cards will also be available. Fans will be limited to two autographed items per player/coach.
Fans should park in the Turner Riverfront Complex parking lots and ride the complimentary shuttles to the Highers Athletics Complex or walk as no parking will be available at the Highers Complex.
