San Antonio - The San Antonio Missions, in a joint effort with Corner Store, are thrilled to announce a brand new Kids Corner program for the 2014 season.

The Kids Corner program will provide non-profit youth organizations with tickets to a Missions home game as well as concession credit.

"Corner Store is proud to be a sponsor of the Kids Corner program," said Kim Bowers, president and CEO of CST Brands, the parent company of the Corner Stores. "Supporting our San Antonio youth is something we are very passionate about, and this program gives kids a chance to feel special and enjoy one of America's favorite pastimes."

"We're very excited to offer San Antonio youth an opportunity to watch professional baseball that they may otherwise not have," said Missions' General Manager Dave Gasaway. "We're thankful to have Corner Store team up for this great cause."

The San Antonio Missions takes the role of community leadership very seriously. It is the goal and responsibility of the organization to become a community leader in the Alamo City. In 2003 the Missions created Missions CARE, a non-profit charitable organization. Missions CARE gives back to the community in many forms such as: scholarships to student-athletes, Missions "Rookie League", local donations and mascot appearances. 

Non-profit youth organizations looking to take part in this program can contact Missions' PR Director Rich Weimert at 210-554-1513 or rweimert@samissions.com.
