Pulaski, Va. - The Pulaski Yankees and Shelor Motor Mile Growing the Future have teamed up to once again provide free baseball tickets to local students for the 2018 season. This year tickets will be distributed to students in both Pulaski County and Wythe County, with a total of 8,539 students receiving the free tickets.


"The Growing the Future program has given so much back to our local schools since the inception of the program," said Shelor Motor Mile Growing the Future Coordinator Melissa Epperly. "This is one more way we can give back and we couldn't be more excited to have them at Calfee Park this year."


Each student will receive 16 undated vouchers, redeemable for two (2) General Admission tickets to his/her choice of any 2018 Pulaski Yankees regular season home game. Each ticket is good for the admission of one (1) student and one (1) adult. An adult must be accompanied by a student, but a student can use the vouchers without an adult.


"We're fortunate to have a great partnership with Growing the Future that allows us to provide this opportunity to local students," said Pulaski Yankees General Manager Christina Edney. "We look forward to welcoming these students to Calfee Park again this summer."


All 2018 Pulaski Yankees home games begin at 7pm with gates opening at 5:30pm. Individual game tickets are now on sale online at pulaskiyankees.net and will be available at the Calfee Park offices beginning May 14.
