PEARL, MS - The Mississippi Braves are proud to announce that beginning in 2019; all members and veterans of all branches of the U.S. military and first responders/emergency personnel will receive $5 field level tickets ($7 discount) to all Mississippi Braves home games when presenting a valid ID. This expanded discount on tickets for all Mississippi Braves home games at Trustmark Park to our local heroes is an extension of SportClips Military Monday and AMR First Responders Wednesday.
On SportClips Military Monday this season, FREE field level or general admission tickets will be offered to all members and veterans of all branches of the U.S. military. One random fan, representing the military, will receive a SportClips prize pack. AMR First Responders Wednesday offers FREE field level or general admission tickets to first responders/emergency personnel.
"The M-Braves want to say thank you to all members of our armed forces and first responders/emergency personnel for their service and sacrifice," said Mississippi Braves Vice President and General Manager, Pete Laven. "Recognizing these exemplary citizens by providing them a fun ballpark experience is something which the Braves and our partners SportClips and AMR are very proud. We look forward to seeing these local heroes and their friends and family at Trustmark Park this season."
"To keep our communities safe day and night, emergency responders must often sacrifice time with their families," said Stan Alford, Operations Manager, AMR Central Mississippi. "Thanks to the M-Braves' promotions for first responders, fire, police and EMS personnel can enjoy more games at the ballpark with their loved ones all season long. It's AMR's special joy to team up with the Braves to make these promotions possible."
The military discount is not available for tickets ordered online, and purchases must be made at the Trustmark Park box office. Fans may now secure their single-game tickets for each of the 70 Mississippi Braves games at Trustmark Park. Tickets may be purchased at mississippibraves.com, by calling 888-BRAVES4 or stopping by the Trustmark Park box office Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
