The Auburn Doubledays are pleased to announce that they will be hosting a "Salute to Service" program at Falcon Park for the 2018 campaign. The Doubledays front office feels strongly about the importance of First Responders throughout our county, and the military professionals who have risked--or given--their lives to protect our country. Because of the passion for these individuals, the Doubledays have decided to offer free General Admission tickets to any veteran or active duty military members, firefighters, police officers, and EMT's each Monday night for the 2018 season.
"We are extremely excited about the idea of giving back to the service members in our community" said General Manager Adam Winslow. "It's our mindset to make sure that we are supporting our community in any way we can. In our opinion, what better way to show that you care than to allow certain groups to be a part of what we do because of the sacrifices they have made to help protect and serve the community."
The Doubledays brought a similar theme to the season last year and wanted to continue to improve the concept and bring more service members into the park. The Doubledays are also working to provide special recognition for service members at each Doubledays game with an announcement of those in attendance that we know of.
"Our focus is really on inviting those who risk their lives and safety to have a good time at a place that is community minded, fun, affordable, and family friendly" said Winslow. "If we continue to show our community and fellow people that we have their best interest at heart, they will continue to come support this great organization. Giving something as little as a ticket to a service member is something that we can afford to do for our community."
Auburn Doubledays season tickets and single game tickets are available now by going to the Doubledays tickets page on www.auburndoubledays.com or by calling the office at 315-255-CITY. Opening day is June 15th, 2018 at Falcon Park with a start time of 6:30.
