ATLANTA - Beginning Friday when the Atlanta Braves take on the Washington Nationals, North and South Carolina residents who evacuated due to Hurricane Florence, can grab some free tickets.
As Hurricane Florence approaches, we know how difficult it has been for those who have had to pack up and leave their homes as the storm approaches,” Braves President and CEO, Derek Schiller said in a press release. “The predicted areas that will be affected are in the heart of Braves Country so it hits particularly close to home for us. We hope we can take their mind off the storm for a few hours by coming to enjoy a game at SunTrust Park. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are impacted.”
Georgia residents who show a valid driver’s license from specific coastal zip codes that are under a mandatory evacuation are also eligible for complimentary tickets.
However, Braves officials warn that tickets are only available at the SunTrust Park ticket office while supplies last.
Each ticket will include free access to Hope & Will’s Sandlot as well as discounted pricing on certain food items around the ball park.
All proceeds for the 50/50 raffle at the weekend series will go to the Red Cross hurricane relief efforts.
