Northwestern, the tournament's No. 2 seed, is one of eight on-campus sites across the country hosting first-round action, with Stanford and Notre Dame doing battle at 7 p.m. CT Friday at Lakeside Field for the right to take on the Wildcats in the second round. Tickets to the game may be purchased at the Lakeside Field ticket booth on gameday for $8 (adults), $5 (senior citizens, students and youth) and $1 for infant tickets. No tickets will be sold in advance of Friday.
