Baseball players and bull riders combine to offer an exciting evening of playing in the dirt. For the eighth year in a row, the USC Aiken Baseball team will hold its Extra Inning PBR. The bull riding will be held on Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. at the James Brown Arena in conjunction with the Augusta Cutting Horse Futurity. The Professional Bull Riders Copenhagen Challenger Tour will stampede its way into Augusta featuring the top bull riders of the PBR. Over 45 bull riders will compete for over $16,000 in cash prizes. Special appearances will be made by the notorious "Chicken on a Chain" and "Get-R-Done," co-owned by PBR stock contractor Jeff Robinson and Larry the Cable Guy. "Chicken on a Chain was the Bull of the Year in PBR last year; you just don't get to see Chicken buck anymore because of his value. He is No. 1 in the world," said Kenny Thomas, USC Aiken Pacers baseball coach. Also, the eight-time PRCA No. 1 specialty act "The One Arm Bandit & Co." will make an appearance combining longhorns, buffalo, dogs, a horse trailer, a whip and a one-armed man. The act excites audiences nationwide. "I realized when I started in 1999 we needed a fundraiser and to be more involved in the community," said Thomas of the team's longstanding involvement with bull riding. In past years the team hosted a rodeo; however, in 2007, the decision was made to partner with PBR and hold several events. One of the main draws for selecting PBR is that the production is unbelievably packed full of excitement, with everything from big-screen videos to pyrotechnics, Thomas said. Tickets to the event are available for $16 and up at Ticket Master locations or online at www.augustaentertainmentcomplex.com.
