Alexandria, LA; July 29, 2011 - The Alexandria Aces have announced that Monday, August 1st, the Aces will be teaming up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to help fight the muscle disease by giving back to MDA $1 from each ticket sold the night of the event. The Aces will be taking on the Coppell Copperheads that night at Bringhurst Field starting at 7 p.m., with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. After the game, everyone in attendance will be allowed onto the field to run the bases as a signature event to show support to help fight the disease.

The Aces will also be participating in the MDA Muscle Walk which will also be held at Bringhurst Field this fall. The local ownership group has tried to find ways to give back to the community, as well as become more involved in various events, and this is another example of the ownership group partnering with other organizations to benefit all groups; bringing additional people to Bringhurst and also help awareness for MDA, as well.

"Bringhurst Field is such a great place to host an event like our Walk, and we see the potential of this facility to make our first event successful. The kids will be able to run around the bases on MDA Night, as well as run the bases during the MDA Muscle Walk in the fall," said MDA Fundraising Coordinator, Christina Griffin.

The Aces return home this Monday and Tuesday to face the Coppell Copperheads. The Aces' last home weekend series is Friday and Saturday against the Victoria Generals, before finishing the season and the last home stand against the East Texas Pump Jacks on August 10th and 11th.
