Tickets will be made available after the Emeralds Opening Day on June 18. The ticket promotion will be highlighted when Sluggo visits Easyhome on Saturday August 16th.

"We are looking to build off of last year's event when Easyhome helped us pack the house with Ems fans who otherwise may not have been able to afford a family outing to a ballgame," said Emeralds General Manager Allan Benavides. "HACSA is a fantastic partner to work with and are always appreciative of the help they receive from the business community."
