The Express will pay homage to the Austin Black Senators, a Texas Negro League baseball team based in Austin from the 1920s through the 1940s. Round Rock players and coaches will don Black Senators jerseys and caps to help honor one of Central Texas' earliest professional sports teams, presented by Round Rock Black History Organization, Chisholm Properties and Austin Area Urban League.
A portion of Austin Black Senators merchandise sales will benefit the Round Rock Black History Organization, a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating the citizens of Round Rock and Williamson County about the contributions of African Americans to the culture of Central Texas and the United States.
The team’s jerseys will be auctioned off during the game, with all proceeds benefiting the Willie Wells Memorial Scholarship at Huston-Tillotson University endowed by the Nolan Ryan Foundation.
All ticketed guests will be invited to enjoy a Kydd Jones postgame concert from the field, weather permitting, presented by Dell Technologies and St. David's Round Rock Medical Center.
