Braves open doors to fans displaced by Florence

MLB.com

The Atlanta Braves are extending an invitation to anyone who has evacuated to Atlanta due to Hurricane Florence to be their guests for the next three games at SunTrust Park when the team takes on the Washington Nationals on Friday (7:35 p.m.), Saturday (1:05 p.m.) and Sunday (1:35 p.m.). In addition, all the proceeds from this weekend's 50/50 raffle will benefit Red Cross efforts for the hurricane.

"As Hurricane Florence approaches, we know how difficult it has been for those who have had to pack up and leave their homes as the storm approaches," said Derek Schiller, Braves President and CEO. "The predicted areas that will be affected are in the heart of Braves Country so it hits particularly close to home for us. We hope we can take their mind off the storm for a few hours by coming to enjoy a game at SunTrust Park. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are impacted."

Complimentary tickets, while supplies last, are available to all residents of North and South Carolina who have been displaced due to mandatory evacuations in anticipation of Hurricane Florence. Georgia residents who show a valid driver's license from the specific coastal zip codes that are under a mandatory evacuation will also be eligible to take advantage of this offer. Tickets are only available at the SunTrust Park Ticket Office while supplies last.

Each ticket will include free access to Hope & Will's Sandlot, a state of the art kid's zone with a rock climbing wall, zipline and carnival games, as well as discounted A-List pricing on specific menu items in the park.

Last season, the Braves distributed over 20,000 tickets to those that evacuated due to Hurricane Irma. For more information and other ways to donate, please visit www.braves.com/florencerelief.
