La Crosse, Wis. - On Saturday, October 23 the annual "Battle for Blood" fall series will begin with first pitch scheduled for 1 PM at the Viterbo University Outdoor Athletic Complex. The series will match the Cardinal team led by coaches Howard Heinrich and Andy Behnke versus the Silver team led by Justin Daniels and Andrew Farrell. The action is always intense and the competition fierce.
The "Battle for Blood" series consists of an intra-squad scrimmage series in which team members from the losing team participate in a campus blood drive service activity. The 2010 version will be a 5 game series, with teams being chosen through a draft. "Battle for Blood" team coaches are current Viterbo players who were nominated by their teammates to lead their respective teams. The Viterbo baseball coaching staff takes a step back and lets the players do battle.
