Fans will also receive pink pompoms as they enter the OSU Softball Complex, and pink OS eye black stickers will also be given out to kids 12 and under, while supplies last. On Saturday, the Beaver softball team will be signing autographs on the field after the game. And on Sunday, kids 12 and under will be invited onto the field to run around the bases after the game.
