The defending Big West champion UC Irvine baseball team will kick off a new season with its annual Ants vs. Eaters intrasquad series at Anteater Ballpark. The first game of the series starts at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, and is sponsored by El Cholo Mexican restaurant, which will be giving out free tacos to all fans after the initial pitch. Also, UCI Athletics will provide free Home Run Hankies to the first 100 people attending. The hankies are good for 10 percent off at El Cholo after all UCI baseball home games during the 2010 season. The Anteaters play additional intrasquad games Nov. 20 and 21.
