The Salt Lake Bees expect more than 11,000 fifth and sixth graders to attend Tuesday's 10:35 a.m. game against Memphis for Prevention Dimensions Day. The drug and alcohol prevention promotion is in conjunction with the Utah State Office of Education, which will host.

The opening ceremony features more than 400 Utah elementary students from the Davis, Granite and Salt Lake school districts. Utah's First Lady, Jeanette Herbert and Verne Larsen, Safe and Drug-Free Schools Coordinator for the Utah State Office of Education, will participate. Larsen will also throw out the ceremonial first pitch, while the Lehi Children's Choir will perform the national anthem.

Prevention Dimensions is Utah's Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities lesson set, which supports the Utah State Office of Education pre-kindergarten through 12th grade health core.

The Bees also play Memphis Redbirds on Monday at 6:35 p.m. at Spring Mobile Ballpark.
