SALEM, VA (Friday, September 1, 2017) - The Salem Red Sox will offer free admission to any and all military service members on Military Appreciation Night on Saturday, September 2 against the Winston-Salem Dash.


Due to the overwhelming support from Veterans of Foreign Wars, Military Family Support Center, and our fans donating tickets at every home game this year, Salem Red Sox President Ryan Shelton has decided to match our partners' contributions by giving free admission to all military service members (active or retired) who do not already have a ticket. Eligible fans can show their military ID at the gates for free entrance.

"In recent years, we have significantly increased our commitment to our fighting men and women," Shelton said. "This year, with such overwhelming support from our fans, the VFW and MFS for the Tickets for Troops program, we wanted to ensure that every soldier, sailor and airman was able to attend and be recognized."

In addition, the first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive a free military-style t-shirt featuring a stars-and-stripes motif similar to our 2017 Military Jerseys. The Salem Red Sox look forward to recognizing our military service members at the game through pre-game activities, special recognitions and symbolic song dedications.

Fans who want to buy tickets for themselves or others should visit the Salem Red Sox box office at Haley Toyota Field at 1004 Texas St. in Salem, visit the team website at, or give the Sox a call at 540-389-3333.
