At every home game, a Huskies Season ticket holder is selected to welcome the team to the field during the Huskies Team intro. The fan plants a Huskies flag at mid-field and that launches the massive fireworks show into the sky and brings the players on to the field. The season ticket holder symbolically represents all fans as they greet the players.
Joe Vidal, a long-time Huskies fan and a four-year season ticket holder planted the flag on Oct 15, 2010 when the Huskies defeated the Dinos.
“It was a lot of fun,” said Vidal. “It was a once-in-a-lifetime expereince.”
Vidal sits in Section 11.
