Hero Recognition

Tickets for Troops

All season long, season ticket holders and fans are encouraged to donate any unused tickets to the Tickets for Troops program. The Indians reissue these complimentary tickets for use by local military bases and veteran groups.


An application must be completed to be considered for complimentary tickets. Tickets need to be used once issued; low redemption rates can lead to removal from the program. The Indians prefer to work with one contact from each military group; large bases may have multiple contacts. The group contact is responsible for the timely distribution of tickets. Individual soldiers, vets and reserves must go through his/her group contact for tickets.

Hero of the Game

Nominate a retired or active member of the military or any first responder for the Indianapolis Indians Hero of the Game. The Indians will honor a serviceperson during games on Saturdays throughout the season, plus Independence Day.
