As the area of southeast Texas continues to endure record rainfall following the initial devastation of Hurricane Harvey, the Lynchburg Hillcats are asking fans to help those affected by making donations throughout the upcoming homestand.
The Hillcats have partnered with Gleaning the World to accept specific items that will be sent to the affected area. These items include dry or canned pet food, cat litter, collars, and leashes. Fans can also make monetary donations at the ballpark. Minor League Baseball Charities has agreed to match all donations raised by its clubs, up to $10,000.
Fans who donate either a specific item from the list or money at the gate will receive a $4 ticket good for any type of seat at that night's game. The Hillcats will also hold a 50/50 raffle at the games on Wednesday and Thursday to help raise funds. Lynchburg is at home Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday against the Potomac Nationals. All games begin at 6:30 p.m., and the gates open at 5:30.
Lynchburg begins its three-game homestand Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Sean Brady (1-1, 6.52) will start for the Hillcats. It's a Two-Fur Tuesday, so fans can enjoy Buy One, Get One Free tickets as well as $2 concession stand deals. That means anyone bringing a donation to Tuesday's game will receive two tickets for just $4! The game can be heard live at www.lynchburg-hillcats.com.
