BOISE, Idaho - Boise State softball is in the thick of the Mountain West title race and the Broncos want to share the season with its loyal fans. The team will host its second annual End of Year Barbecue following the game Saturday, May 3, on Fan Appreciation Day at Dona Larsen Park. First pitch is at 3 p.m. (MT) against New Mexico.

The postgame event includes dinner, a full program of events, a silent auction and the chance to win great door prizes. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased by cash or check at the Boise State Athletic Ticket Office during regular business hours or at Dona Larsen Park on home game days. Fans are encouraged to buy their tickets before next weekend's games.

The meal includes brisket, chicken, beans, macaroni and cheese, plenty of other great sides, desserts and assorted soft drinks. The barbecue is back by popular demand after the inaugural event last season drew more than 100 Bronco softball supporters.

Fan Appreciation Day also marks the return of the popular fan-voted uniform combination. Starting Monday, fans will be able to vote for which uniform the Broncos will wear Saturday, by picking their favorite option on the official Boise State Broncos Facebook Page. Voting will be open until 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Boise State is off this weekend, using its bye week to prepare for the home stretch of the conference season. The Broncos are 11-7 in Mountain West play, tied for third in the standings and just a half game behind a tie for first place between Fresno State and Colorado State at 10-5.
