UTM Sports Information
The UT Martin athletics department will host a “Grill Out Chill Out doubleheader” at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Skyhawk Park on campus.
The Skyhawk baseball team will host Morehead State on Skyhawk Field, while the UT Martin softball squad entertains Ohio Valley Conference rival Tennessee Tech at Bettye Giles Field.
Tyson Foods will provide free grilled chicken while Pepsi Mid-America will provide free soft drinks.
In conjunction with the Grill Out Chill Out, UT Martin will host “Never Quit” Day.
When fans enter Skyhawk Park on May 7, they will have an opportunity to make a donation to the “Never Quit” Foundation.
The “Never Quit” Foundation was created by Johnny Pearson in memory of his late wife, Lori, who played softball and was a graduate assistant coach at UT Martin.
Lori lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 39 in November.
The “Never Quit” Foundation will support families of cancer victims and award future scholarships for young women as they pursue their dreams. Johnny and his family work tirelessly on foundation activities.
