Houston Cougars offering season ticket refunds for fans that can hit HR

Wednesday January 14th, 2015

Season tickets can be expensive. But the Houston Cougars baseball program is intent on giving you your money back -- with a catch. 

On Saturday, Feb. 7, the Cougars will offer refunds for season tickets. But in order to get the refund, season ticket holders must hit a home run at Cougar Field off a pitching machine. 

The other catch is that you have to buy or renew season tickets by Feb. 6. No free swings. 

Houston had better let participants use aluminum bats.
