Cooper Buske tosses out the first pitch of the game while players from both Kansas and Texas Tech gather to watch Saturday afternoon at Arrocha Ballpark. The Jayhawks traded their traditional blue and white uniforms for orange as part of the "Jayhawks for a cure" game in order show support for finding a cure for kidney cancer. The game is played in honor of Cooper's father and Kansas head coach Megan Smith's husband, Paul Buske, who passed away from kidney cancer in 2011.
